ALTA nline-e1553

Innovative Packaging Techniques Embed 1553 Directly in the Cable

Alta Data Technologies, LLC (Alta) announces the development of a new family of products: NLINE™. As the name suggests, Alta has embedded their industry-leading MIL-STD-1553 protocol engine technology directly into cable assemblies for real-time Ethernet, Thunderbolt™, and USB 3 interfaces. Combined with their AltaAPI software development kit (SDK), and advanced signal capture o-scope capabilities, these products will offer unmatched functionality and ease of deployment for aerospace platforms. The first NLINE product for Ethernet, NLINE-E1553™, releases this month with Thunderbolt and USB 3 scheduled for early 2021.
 

The NLINE-E1553 provides full 1553 functionality for 1-2 channels, and even includes a signal capture o-scope

The NLINE products are a logical extension to the very successful ENET, and recently released, Thunderbolt and USB 3 appliances. For deployed systems, ENET and NLINE products provide an unmatched breadth of 1553 integration options. From saving card slots, or removing worriers about future hardware and OS versions, these products simplify 1553 integration. The Thunderbolt product will allow PCI Express capability, which means even real-time hardware interrupt applications can be done via a cable. And there is signal capture, which is an o-scope capability built-in to help troubleshoot cabling and possible security issues. We really hit a demand nerve with this concept and already have several customers awaiting deliveries.

Rugged, Real-Time In-Line 1553 to Ethernet Converter. Full 1553 BC, RT and BM Controls. No OS or IP Stack, No Viruses

Almost every avionics or communication system implements an Ethernet topology, but most 1553 Ethernet converter products are processor/Linux based with unsecure IP network stacks that greatly slow down Ethernet communications. ENET and NLINE designs are FPGA hardware-based UDP thin servers that provide real-time Ethernet/1553 bridging/conversion, reducing threats of viruses or internal hacking. These products provide all the advanced controls of traditional 1553 interfaces, and can simultaneously auto bridge time-stamped 1553 UDP packets without any programming. There is a fast auto-boot feature where 1553 and MIL-1760 RX controls can be managed through standard socket communications as implemented in almost every OS, even DO-178 compliant systems.
