The Alta Data XMC-1553 is a powerful MIL-STD-1553 XMC Interface Card.  Designed to offer the highest 1553 channel count in the industry, with an advanced PCI Express 2.1 backplane.

Key Features MIL-STD-1553 XMC Interface Card:

  • High Channel Count: Provides 1-10 independent, dual redundant (A/B) MIL-STD-1553 channels, supporting 1553A, 1553B, and WMUX PP194 protocols.
  • Versatile Compatibility: Ideal for PCI Express, VPX, VME, Single Board Computers (SBC), CompactPCI (or Express), and PXI systems.
  • Advanced 1553 Software: Comes with Alta’s AltaAPI™ software development kit, compatible with a wide range of operating systems.
  • Reduced Footprint: Upgraded PCI Express 2.1 and internal memory design reduce I/O cycles, power consumption, and weight, freeing up valuable slots in your systems.
  • Protocol Engine: Features Alta’s AltaCore-1553 protocol engine with unique signal capture and signal generator capabilities, enhancing embedded, test, and simulation applications.
  • Remote Terminal and Bus Controller: Supports full TX loop-back verification for bus controller (BC) and remote terminal (RT) functions.
  • Bus Analyzer: Provides advanced monitoring capabilities to analyse bus performance.
  • Robust Design Options: Available in commercial, extended temperature, and conduction-cooled versions.
  • High-Speed Memory: Equipped with one MByte high-speed static RAM per channel.

Operating Modes:

  • Dual Function Models: Operate as Bus Controller (BC)/Monitor (MON) or Multiple Remote Terminals (MRT, 1-32)/Monitor (MON).
  • Full Function Models: Combine BC/Monitor and MRT(1-32)/Monitor modes.

The XMC-1553 card is engineered for reliability and performance, making it a perfect choice for rigorous MIL-STD-1553 test applications and demanding environments.
