ABI-V5 is used for high-performance simulation applications where very fast data transfers between the host and the interface are required. The V5 provides a flexible, multichannel, dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 Master/Slave interface to the VMEbus backplane. The advanced interface provides automated buffer transfers to and from host memory. DMA transfers free the host processor from time consuming polling or interrupt handling.

  • Supports D64 DMA Block Transfers
  • Optional 48-bit IRIG-B clock input
  • Extensive error injection and detection
  • Flexible 32-bit data structures
