Rio Rancho, NM (August 3, 2021) - Alta Data Technologies, LLC (Alta) announces the release of a MIL-STD-1553 Thunderbolt interface appliance: NLINE-T1553™. The product embeds the industry leading MIL-STD-1553 protocol engine, AltaCore™ directly into the Thunderbolt cable assembly. With this new product, a customer has full featured controls for 1-2 channels of 1553 BC, RT and BM functions via a Thunderbolt USB-C connection. Combined with the standard AltaAPI™ software development kit (SDK), and advanced signal capture o-scope capabilities, this product offers unmatched 1553 functionality and ease of deployment for aerospace platforms. The NLINE-T1553 is available now for immediate COTS delivery.
Per Harry Wild, VP of Sales for Alta, “The NLINE is a logical extension to the very successful real-time Ethernet ENET™ product line, and recently released 1553 Thunderbolt™ and USB 3 appliances. For deployed systems, or lab usage, the NLINE-T1553 product opens up many 1553 integration options. For example, the customer can take an application developed for desktops or servers, and use this exact same application on a notebook with an NLINE-T1553. And there is signal capture, which is an o-scope capability built-in to help troubleshoot cabling and cybersecurity issues.
This new NLINE-T1553 product provides 1-2 channels of full 1553 network controls via a rugged in-line cable. Our team did an amazing amount of R&D to develop new packaging techniques to embedded our 1553 design directly into MIL-810G/461F qualified cable assemblies, even with operational, water immersion, and 60K altitude with the NLINE-E1553 Ethernet product. Now customers can literally connect-up and go.”
