Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta adds, “We offer a design reference card with complete schematics, STEP 3-d files and breck-out cables for bench testing. The customer can connect the MEZDEV-E01 board to their development computer via Ethernet and write their application while designing the hardware. The MEZ-E1553 is ideal for any rugged, custom requirement. The product also includes signal capture (o-scope) capability for troubleshooting 1553 cable issues, and cybersecurity signal modeling.”
Almost every avionics or communication system implements an Ethernet topology, but most 1553 Ethernet converter products are processor based with unsecure IP network stacks that greatly slow down communications. ENET, NLINE and MEZ-E1553 designs are FPGA hardware-based UDP thin servers that provide a real-time 1553-Ethernet connection, and reduces threats of viruses or hacking. These products provide all the advanced controls of traditional 1553 interfaces, and can simultaneously auto bridge time-stamped 1553-UDP packets without any programming. There is a fast auto-boot feature, and data structures can be controlled through standard socket communications as implemented in almost every OS, even DO-178 compliant systems.
