Alta Data Technologies has released its high density XMC MIL-STD-1553 interface card, the company said. The XMC-1553 supports up to 10 channels and “offers the highest 1553 channel count ever offered in the industry with advanced PCI Express 2.1 backplane,” according to Alta.
“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. “Alta’s has the only [commercial off the shelf] 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.”
The card works with PCI Express, VPX, VME, Single Board Computers (SBC) and CompactPCI PXI systems.
