ALLIED Data Systems Pty Ltd’s BU-66318 ACE-Bridge provides a simple, complete and tested solution for interfacing any of Data Device Corporation’s (DDC) ACE series (including the ACE, Mini-ACE, Enhanced Mini-ACE, Micro-ACE and Mini-ACE Mark3 series) and MIL-STD-1553 terminals to a PCI bus.

The ACE-Bridge connects directly to any 3.3V PCI bus as a target device.

With its interrupt support and a 32 x 32-bit FIFO allowing for burst write transfers, the BU-66318 can significantly reduce system overhead by using the efficiency of the PCI bus.

The BU-66318 may be connected to up to six ACE series MIL-STD-1553 terminals directly without any ‘glue logic’.

Using a select and strobe handshake method, the BU-66318 accesses all of its MIL-STD-1553 terminals RAM and Registers through a 16 bit address/data bus.

Support for an optional local microprocessor is included in the ACEBridge. If a local microprocessor is added, the BU-66318 uses a DMA type handshake method to arbitrate for the local bus. A shared RAM interface is also included.
