MIL-STD-1553 Components TOTAL OCTAVA

mil-std-1553 component

MIL-STD-1553 components are avaible with extra benefits.

Sital’s Total-OCTAVA™ MIL-STD-1553 components integrate a BC/RT/Monitor or RT-only MIL-STD-1553B protocol engine, memory management, processor interface logic, 4K or 64K words of RAM, as well as a dual 1553 transceiver and dual transformer in a 312-ball Plastic BGA (Ball Grid Array) package.

The Total-OCTAVA™ is a pin-to-pin replacement for DDC’s® BU-64863T8 Total-ACE®, providing electrical, mechanical and architectural compatibility.

The design of the Total-OCTAVA is based on the design of Sital’s original OCTAVA, which is a drop-in replacement for DDC’s® Enhanced Mini-ACE®.

Over the past ten years, Sital has built thousands of OCTAVAs which have been flying in military systems worldwide.

Total-OCTAVA is multi-protocol, supporting: MIL-STD-1553A, MIL-STD-1553B,MIL-STD-1760, STANAG-3838 and General Dynamics 16PP303, along with McAir A3818, A5232 and A5690.

Sital’s MIL-STD-1553 transceivers consume and dissipate extremely low power.


Total-OCTAVA BC also includes an option for detecting messages transmitted by an impersonating BC. If such messages are detected, they are reported to the BC’s host processor.

Additionally, the BC includes an additional option for providing intrusion protection (IPS).

For applications involving McAir protocols, Sital can supply Micro-OCTAVA-TEs with transceivers providing compatibility with the McAir A3818, A5232 and A5690 standards.

In conclusion, Sital Technology is a Xilinx partner with the ability to utilize many solutions.
