MIL-STD 1553B serial interface for PCI
The PCI 53B has been discontinued, and is no longer supported. This information is provided for reference only.
The board provides a complete single slot MIL-STD 1553B interface for PCI bus computers. The 1553B interface is a 1 Mbit per second serial bus interface, used where reliability in extreme environments is essential. The board initializes as a single RT, after initialization the application program can configure the card as required.
The PCI 53B uses an onboard SPARC processor and can be reprogrammed for any 1553 protocol. The board supports the full standard but may be configured to detect any standard command or sub-command as illegal.
