Single or dual channel MIL-STD-1553B mezzanine

Avionics PMC1553E


PMC1553E is a single or dual channel MIL-STD-1553B mezzanine suitable for use in a wide range of embedded applications in both air- and conduction-cooled environments. Performance has been significantly enhanced over previous generations, with 66 MHx PCI bridging providing improved access to the 1553 bus.

This also ensures greater compatibility with the latest generation PowerPC processor boards and CompactPCI single board computers. Typical applications for the PMC1553E include: mission electronics, navigational aids, target acquisition, UAVs, electronics countermeeasures and stores management.

The module is compliant with MIL-STD-1553A, MIL-STD-1553B Notice 2 and STANAG 3838 protocols. Each channel may be independently selected as Bus Controller (BS), Remote Terminal (RT) or Bus Monitor (BM).
