Miniature 1553 Interface Advances Embedded and Portable Avionics Platforms

Rio Rancho, NM (August 1, 2017) – Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of a full size F2 mini PCI Express Interface Card for MIL-STD-1553 Networks: MPCIE2-1553. The MPCIE2-1553 product provides 1-2 dual redundant 1553B channels and is available in Dual (BM/BM or mRT/BM) or Full Function (BC/mRT/BM) models. The product is designed around Alta’s advanced protocol engine (PE), AltaCore™, and includes Alta’s modular software development kit, AltaAPI™.

“This new MPCIE2-1553 card, based on industry leading AltaCore-1553 PE, provides advanced MIL-STD-1553 capabilities for embedded, COM Express and notebook/portable systems. Alta implemented a native PCI Express design for increased performance and MSI interrupt support, and took the extra design effort to implement signal capture (o-scope on the first channel).” says Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta.

Harry Wild, VP of Sales of Alta states, “The new MPCIE2-1553 mini PCI Express card provides interface and test capabilities second to none, and our AltaAPI, AltaView-1553™ analyzer and AltaRTVal™ RT Validation software tools are the latest in modular, portable technologies. Customers will achieve significant savings in integration and test time with these new products. The A/D signal capture, signal generators, advanced BIT and dual temperature sensors are industry-leading features not found on competitor’s products. We also offer single-card combination ARINC and 1553 PCI Express Configurations, and our Ethernet converter products (ENET) provide real-time 1553 or ARINC connectivity without processors or thick IP stacks.”

Highest Channel Count Ever Supported on XMC PCI Express Platforms for MIL-STD-1553 Network Busses

RIO RANCHO, N.M.–(August 3, 2017). Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of a high density (up to 10 channels) XMC MIL-STD-1553 interface card: XMC-1553. This new product offers the highest 1553 channel count ever offered in the industry with advanced PCI Express 2.1 backplane! The XMC-1553 is ideal for PCI Express, VPX, VME, Single Board Computers (SBC), CompactPCI (or Express) PXI systems, and includes Alta’s advanced AltaAPI™ software development kit for a wide variety of operating systems. Commercial, extended temperature and conduction cooled options are available.

“The XMC-1553 offers amazing channel count options (1553A, 1553B and WMUX PP194) with an upgraded 2.1 PCI Express and internal memory design to reduce process I/O cycles in the customer’s system. This new card represents a technology advancement to reduce the customers’ system footprint with reduced power and weight – freeing up valuable I/O slots on SBCs or VPX, VME, cPCI type systems,” says Harry Wild, Alta VP of Sales.

Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta adds, “The XMC-1553 card incorporates Alta’s proven AltaCore-1553 protocol engine along with industry unique signal capture and signal generator capabilities to provide advanced features for embedded, test and simulation applications. Alta’s has the only COTS product on the market that can execute and pass the AS4111 5.2 protocol tests, and our AltaAPI development kit, with over 100 example program templates, greatly speeds-up the application development process. In addition, all our cards work with AltaView analyzer software and have independent device control over 1553A/1553B channels and ARINC channel banks.”
