[Avionics Today 05-10-2016] Avionics Interface Technologies (AIT) has introduced a new network appliance for streaming MIL-STD1553 bus data over Ethernet Local Area Networks (LANs), the eDAQ-1553. The new product requires no external software or special setup, which aims to save cost and cycle time.

The eDAQ-1553 can monitor 100 percent MIL-STD-1553 databus traffic from two channels simultaneously, according to AIT. The solution handles 100 percent bus load on two MIL-STD-1553 channels and converts it into two Inter-Range Instrumentation Group (IRIG) 106 Chapter 10 streams, consuming 3 Mbps to 4.6 Mbps combined bandwidth on the LAN. The system is also compatible with any IRIG 106 Chapter 10 monitoring software. The eDAQ-1553 generates standard streams, so any third-party Chapter 10 analyzer software can use the output. It also allows accessibility from any host system on the LAN and can be configured to unicast to a single LAN host or to multicast.
