ALTA DATA TECHNOLOGIES RELEASES 3-4 CHANNEL MIL-STD-1553 ETHERNET CONVERTER

Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of a high density, (3-4 channels) real-time Ethernet converter for MIL-STD-1553: ENETX-1553. This new product offers the highest 1553 channel count ever offered in a small rugged Ethernet appliance. Alta’s ENET product family implements a FPGA thin server (no processor or operating system IP stack) for secure, real-time Ethernet-1553 UDP connectivity. In addition to 1553/ARINC controls, bus signals can be generated and captured remotely for protocol and electrical troubleshooting.

“The eNetX-1553 is a logical extension to our very successful ENET product family. Almost every avionics or communication system implements an Ethernet topology, and now you can easily add 1553 connectivity with this small, rugged, low cost converter,” states Harry Wild, Vice President of Sales for Alta.

Jake Haddock, Alta CTO, adds “Most other 1553 converter products on the market are processor based with an unsecure operating system IP stacks that greatly slow down Ethernet communications. ENET designs are based on our own FPGA thin server UDP interface that provides real-time Ethernet/1553 bridging/conversion without the threat of viruses or internal hacking. Out ENET products provide advanced controls of traditional 1553 interfaces, and simultaneously can auto bridge-transmit PPS, IRIG, IEEE-1588 time-stamped 1553/ARINC UDP packets without any programming. There is a fast auto-boot feature where 1553 and MIL-1760 controls can be managed through straight UDP socket communications as implemented with almost every OS, even DO-178 compliant systems.”
