Alta Data Technologies introduces the MPCIE2-1553, a full size F2 mini
PCI Express interface card for MIL-STD-1553 networks.
Providing 1-2 dual redundant 1553B channels, the new interface card is
available in Dual (BM/BM or mRT/BM) or Full Function (BC/mRT/BM) models. The
MPCIE2-1553 is designed around Alta’s advanced protocol engine (PE), AltaCore
and includes Alta’s modular software development kit, AltaAPI.
Based on the industry leading AltaCore-1553 PE, the MPCIE2-1553 card provides
advanced MIL-STD-1553 capabilities for embedded, COM Express and notebook/portable
systems. A native PCI Express design has been implemented for increased
performance and MSI interrupt support, with Alta taking the extra design effort
to implement signal capture (o-scope on the first channel).
The new MPCIE2-1553 mini PCI Express card provides advanced interface
and test capabilities, and the AltaAPI, AltaView-1553 analyser and Altar Val RT
validation software tools are the latest in modular, portable technologies. These
new products help users achieve significant savings in integration and test
The A/D signal capture, signal generators, advanced BIT and dual
temperature sensors are industry-leading features not found on other products. Additionally,
single-card combination ARINC and 1553 PCI Express configurations, and Ethernet
converter products (ENET) provide real-time 1553 or ARINC connectivity without
processors or thick IP stacks.
