Kfar Saba, Israel – November 24, 2005 – Sital Technology, a leading provider of military standard Intellectual Property (IP) cores, announced today that a large Israel based company, will be using the company’s MIL-STD-1553B IP Core for their MIL-STD-1760 weapons bus.
Sital’s core is a second source replacement for a leading Integrated circuit (IC) provider of MIL-STD-1553B devices. Sital has committed to deliver an Altera StratixII FPGA core, which will use the very same Software (SW) drivers, developed for the replaced IC.
The customer developed a PCB board that can accommodate both the 1553 IC AND the required transceivers for the IP core. When the Software integration is completed with the IC device the core will use the same SW drivers and deliver the very same capabilities delivered by the IC device.
Featuring the smallest gate count in the industry, Sital’s MIL-STD-1553B IP core offers highly improved reliability robustness, flexibility and ease-of-use. It is also one of the few IP cores on the market that passed the RT Validation tests, a set of complex qualification tests required to connect to the front-end and ensure complete reliability.
“Sital’s IP core direct replacement for DDC devices poses a very challenging goal for Sital R&D department, and we are looking forward to finalize the Hardware Software integration as soon as possible” said Ofer Hofman, founder and R&D Manager of Sital Technology.
“The customer is able to benefit from improved reliability, robustness and ease of use, with the ability to save more than 50% of its MIL-STD-1553 solutions. We are expecting the bigger customers of 1553 solutions in Israel to save more than 1 million dollar each per year when they fully migrate to our IP solutions”, said Duli Yariv, VP marketing of Sital Technology.
Sital’s IP cores are available for Remote Terminal and Bus Monitor applications. An IP core for Bus Controller applications will be available in Q1 2006. Sital’s business model enables the company to customize pricing models per the customer’s specific needs.
