It provides a Type II PC-card (PCMCIA) form factor based on DDC's field-proven and industry-standard Enhanced Mini-ACE.
The advanced MIL-STD-1553 bus controller architecture gives the card superior flexibility and autonomy. Resulting advantages include improving message scheduling control, minimising host overhead for asynchronous message insertion, facilitating bulk data transfers and double buffering, message retry and bus switching strategies, and data logging and fault reporting.
The card's MIL-STD-1553 remote terminal architecture meets all common MIL-STD-1553 protocols.
RT data buffering and interrupt options offer robust support for synchronous and asynchronous messaging while ensuring data sample consistency and supporting bulk data transfers on the MIL-STD-1553 data bus.
The BU-65553 MIL-STD-1553 features a mating connector with a metal backshell and jackscrews for superior durability.
Free BU-65553 MIL-STD-1553 software supports all modes of operation, including DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 9x/NT/2000 and Linux device drivers (including source code).
The optional dataMARS/dataSIMS software packages for MIL-STD-1553 systems integration and simulation are also available.
This MIL-STD-1553 software package incorporates real time data acquisition and display, high-level graphical interfaces, triggering capabilities, unit conversion and mathematical manipulation, dynamic modeling and report generation.
