The QPM-1553 provides the highest level of performance, flexibility and interface density for MIL-STD-1553A/B on a PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) module. The QPM-1553 is integrated with powerful software that reduces development time. All 1553 databus functionality is supported from our advanced API (Application Programming Interface).
Standard features include 1 MB RAM per channel, real-time bus playback, aperiodic message insertion, error injection/detection, conditional BC branching, 64-bit, 25 nanosecond message timetagging, and "one-shot" BC operation. Options include IRIG-B Receiver/Generator, ruggedized, extended temp and conductive cooling configurations. The Bus Monitor mode provides 100% bus monitoring of a fully loaded 1553 buses.
The Abaco Systems MIL-STD-1553 product line is significantly enhanced to meet the varying requirements of end users. The internal MIL-STD-1553 Local Processing Unit (LPU) has undergone a major update to improve and expand performance, functionality and modularity.
The LPU version is 4.XX or 5.XX (V4/V5) on legacy firmware and version 6.XX (V6) on the new enhanced firmware. In addition to these LPU improvements, multiple other changes were added to enhance firmware and software modularity across multiple platforms.
V6 firmware is highly recommended for all new developments. Previous V4/V5 firmware has been deprecated and will no longer be actively developed but will continue to be supported. Any future 1553 product features or enhancements will only be developed for the V6 firmware.
Using V6 firmware will require updating to BusTools/1553-API version 8.x or later.

Thunderbolt 3: a path forward for avionics data bus interfaces and Abaco’s ARINC 615-3 data loader
Engineers using avionics data bus interfaces and data loaders are facing a growing problem: the demise of the PCMCIA and ExpressCard interfaces, and the inadequacy of USB as an alternative. There is, however, a way forward.
