High density 10 channel 1553 XMC card uses PCIe backplane

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

Alta Data Technologies has launched a high density (up to 10 channels) XMC MIL-STD-1553 interface card with the highest channel count.


The XMC-1553  uses a PCI Express 2.1 backplane to provide the 10 channels for PCI Express, VPX, VME, Single Board Computers (SBC), CompactPCI (or Express) PXI systems. It includes Alta’s advanced AltaAPI software development kit for a wide variety of operating systems. Commercial, extended temperature and conduction cooled options are available.

“The XMC-1553 offers amazing channel count options (1553A, 1553B and WMUX PP194) with an upgraded 2.1 PCI Express and internal memory design to reduce process I/O cycles in the customer's system. This new card represents a technology advancement to reduce the customers’ system footprint with reduced power and weight – freeing up valuable I/O slots on SBCs or VPX, VME, cPCI type systems,” said Harry Wild, Alta VP of Sales.

“The XMC-1553 card incorporates Alta’s proven AltaCore-1553 protocol engine along with industry unique signal capture and signal generator capabilities to provide advanced features for embedded, test and simulation applications," said Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta. "This is the only COTS product on the market that can execute and pass the AS4111 5.2 protocol tests, and our AltaAPI development kit, with over 100 example program templates, greatly speeds-up the application development process. In addition, all our cards work with AltaView analyzer software and have independent device control over 1553A/1553B channels and ARINC channel banks.”
