MIL-STD-1553 In-line Thunderbolt Interface NLINE-T1553

The NLINE-T1553 is built on Thunderbolt 3 technology with a PCIe Interface (USB-C).

It contains a 1 or 2 dual redundant independent MIL-STD-1553 Bus Channels that are built into the Cable (NLINE).

The Alta Data NLINE-T1553 is an Inline-MIL-STD 1553 Thunderbolt interface.  Firstly, this 1553 product is embedded directly into the Thunderbolt cable assembly.  It contains controls for 1-2 channels of 1553 BC, RT and BM functions via a Thunderbolt USB-C connection.  Therefore, when paired with AltaAPI™ Software and advanced signal capture o-scope capabilities, it offers 1553 functionality and easy of deployment into aerospace platforms.

Secondly, the NLINE-T1553 offers many integration options.  Such as taking an application developed for desktops or servers and use the same application on a lap top with an NLINE-T1553.  There is signal capture, which helps o-scope capability built in to hep troubleshoot cabling and cyber security issues.

Due to portability, customers can use the exact same application code as used with a PCIe card that can also be used with the NLINE.  Allowing a choice of using a PCIe card slot or an external device using USB-C cable.
