Sital Announces the Release of the BRD1553 PC104 PC104 Multi Interface Board

Sital Technology announces the launch of its new PC104+ board, an efficient and robust platform for avionics communication bus applications.

BRD1553PC104 Board is a PC-104+ Card, multi-standard board that consists of 2 dual-redundant channels of Mil-Std-1553. It’s compatible with Mil-Std-1760 and Mil-Std-1553B as well as its channels can independently be configured to work with EBR1553, WB-194, and H009  in conjunction with 1553. Other protocols, such as French DigiBus, also are available when requested.

The PC-104+ Board’s based on Sital’s proven H009, 1553 & WB-194 (WMUX) IP cores, loaded into an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) component and discrete components transceivers. The board is able to be programmed by Sital, allowing the flexibility to support a variety of protocols and configurations with the use of the exact same hardware. It includes 8 Generic I/O pins, that could be utilized as RS-485/RS-422, and also includes ARINC-429 (8 for transmit and 16 for receive channels) or 8 avionics I/O ports. Also, the board includes 8 digital I/Os & IRIG-B time-tag input & output channels.

Sital Technology announced today that it completed the design of the Enhanced Bit Rate (EBR) 1553 Intellectual Property core for FPGA.

EBR-1553 is a 10Mbps bit rate protocol that utilized the robust Mil-Std-1553 protocol over RS-485 transceivers in a hub-based point-to-point connection. Using a star network topology between BC & Remote Terminals enables robust and high-speed data transfer.

Sital’s EBR-1553 IP core’s based on Sital’s proven BRM1553D 1553 IP cores, with DDC® Enhanced Mini-Ace® compatible interface. The ones available are Remote Terminals, Bus Controller as well as Bus Monitor IP Core configurations. The BRM1553D core can work with any FPGA, and requires only a standard RS-485 transceiver, which supports 10Mbps.

Users of Sital’s EBR-1553 IP core can select the core configuration (BC, RT, MT), clock frequency, memory configuration and FPGA family. The back-end interface can be targeted to a local-bus, PCI bus or simple FIFO/registers read/write bus.

The IP Core is provided with software drivers for Windows, Linux, and QNX along with high-level API. The API is fully compatible with DDC API, so that software developers already used to the DDC interface can easily transfer their existing applications to EBR.

An EBR-1553 tester is also available, utilizing the exact same hardware as the commonly used MultiComBox™, only with updated firmware.

“We are very pleased that we can now deliver high-speed EBR-1553 IP to our customers” said Duli Yariv, Sital’s VP Sales and Marketing. “Customers will enjoy the robustness of the 1553 protocol at a high speed of 10Mbps over the very low-cost RS-485 transceivers, with the ability to easily integrate the core into their FPGA and application” he added.

Ofer Hofman, Sital’s CTO pointed that “unlike other vendors’ solutions, Sital’s is a complete solution that includes all modes of operation – BC, RT and Monitor – along with software drivers and EBR tester hardware”.

The EBR-1553 IP core joins the Sital’s growing family of Mil-Std-1553, Arinc429, CAN, WB-194 and other reliable serial bus communication IP cores and solutions.

Sital Technology announces the launch of its new PMC Hyperboard, a robust and efficient platform for avionics communication bus applications. Adhering to numerous bus standards including Mil-Std-1553B, H009, WB194 and DigiBus, the PMC Hyperboard puts into the hands of developers a highly-efficient and accelerated platform upon which they can rapidly develop state-of-the-art applications for many types of communication buses.

PMC HyperBoard features eight dual-redundant, configurable channels where each channel can be a bus controller (BC), remote terminal (RT) or MultiRT and/or monitor (MT). The board provides 8X avionics and 8X digital discrete I/Os. It can be used in conduction or air cooling environment. HyperBoard’s core works from its PCI clock and provides very fast PCI access supporting PCI burst. The board boasts very low power consumption and low heat dissipation.

“The PMC HyperBoard provides our customers with two major advantages,” declared Duli Yariv, VP of Marketing. “First, it provides a common and complete environment that is easy to learn for application developers who can then create applications for 1553, DigiBus and other standards using the same board and software. Second, the resulting applications benefit from the robustness, flexibility, speed, low heat dissipation and low power consumption of the board and surrounding software environment.”

Sital markets the PMC HyperBoard with a complete software development and testing environment including drivers and software API for Windows® and Linux. In addition, Sital’s popular Luthier™ graphic user interface for bus simulation and analysis is available.

PMC HyperBoard can be used for on-board avionics systems and for lab testing equipment and is software-compatible with DDC® Enhanced MiniACE® components and architecture.

PMC HyperBoard joins the Sital family of advanced communication bus products-star performers for a wide variety of applications.
