HARDWARE

The AT-cPCI-1553 single function architecture can emulate as a Bus Controller or 31 Remote Terminal or Monitor Terminal modes. Polling and interrupt generation is also provided. Rear I/O connectivity option via J2 connector can be provided on CPC backplane. If rear IO connector is used in the card, it has to be used in PXI backplane only. User should take caution.

Transformer and Direct Coupling
The card can be configured to work either in the transformer-coupled mode or in the direct-coupled mode. A jumper is provided on the card to select the mode. It is configured to work in the transformer-coupled mode by default.

SOFTWARE

The AT-cPCI-1553 software includes:
> Drivers & APIs
> Bus Monitor

Drivers & APIs
The card comes with a powerful set of library functions to access the entire MIL-STD-1553B functionality. The drivers are designed in a modular fashion consisting of component functions and application functions. The user’s test program can be developed with few calls to the driver by using the set of application functions provided. Driver and high-level API libraries for Windows XP, Windows 7 and Linux are available. LabVIEW support is also provided. Sample programs for BC, RT, MT modes are included.

Bus Monitor
The Bus monitor software module enables effective monitoring of dataflow on the 1553 bus. All events taking place on the 1553 bus are dynamically captured. This data can be recorded and replayed enabling offline analysis.

  • Record and Replay of data
