One Two Four or Eight Stream MIL-STD-1553A/B Test and Simulation Module

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer AIM


Description :

The AVX1553-1/2/4/8 is a member of AIM's new (fourth generation) family of advanced VME bus modules for analysing, simulating, monitoring and testing MIL-STD-1553A/B databuses. The AVX1553-x modules concurrently act as the Bus Controller, Multiple Remote Terminals (31) and Chronological Bus Monitor / Mailbox Monitor.

The AVX1553-1/2-DS version known as MILScope™, has an on-board A/D converter on the first MIL-STD-1553A/B channel. The MILScope™, option provides a unique capability to test and verify the MIL-STD-1553A/B waveform and detect faulty bus conditions without the need of an external Oscilloscope. A full range of MIL-STD-1553A/B protocol errors can be injected/ detected. The AVX1553-x cards can electrically reconstruct and replay previously recorded MIL-STD-1553A/B record files physically to the MIL-STD-1553A/B bus with excellent timing accuracy. The AVX1553-x offers an interface for 1, 2, 4 or 8 dual redundant bus streams. All versions are 6U VME-module card formats The AVX1553-x card uses AIM's Next Generation 'Common Core' (NCC) hardware design utilising multiple RISC processors with up to 32MBytes of global RAM and 128MBytes of ASP RAM. The use of an on-board Application Support Processor (ASP) runs the Driver software on the card minimising the host PC interaction.

The use of on-board processing and large memory enables autonomous operation with minimal interaction with the host PC for real time applications.

An on-board IRIG B time generator/decoder is included having a sinusoidal output and free wheeling mode for time tag synchronisation on the system level using one or more AVX1553-x cards. The Physical Bus Interface (PBI) Daughter board provides programmable bus coupling modes and variable Output Amplitude to the MIL-STD-1553A/B bus. The AVX1553-x cards have the capability to stimulate/monitor five general purpose discrete I/O (GPIO) signals. The AVX1553-x cards are available as Full Function, Single Function and Simulator only versions. Full function driver software (incl. C/C++ source code) is delivered with the AVX1553-x Cards. The optional MIL-STD-1553A/B, PBA-2000/ ParaView Databus Analyser/ Visualiser Software (for Windows) plus the all new™ (for Windows and Linux) can also be purchased for use with AVX1553-x cards in conjunction with the AIM Network Server (ANS) for VxWorks (not part of the Driver Software).™ software components are available to support the MILScope™ capability of AVX1553-x cards to view and verify the MIL-STD-1553A/B waveform. Also off the shelf test scripts are available to support the automatic execution of the 'AS4112 RT Production Test Plan' Protocol and Electrical Waveform Tests.
