AIM rolls out Ethernet-based 1553 simulation modules
Staff - December 16, 2012The ANET1553 series of MIL-STD-1553 test and simulation modules from AIM provides flexibility in avionics-bus testing wherever an Ethernet-based system is employed. In addition to a standard 10/100-Mpbs Ethernet interface, the modules furnish onboard Linux, which allows them to perform such tasks as executing embedded PBA.pro resource handling or running custom applications.
A general-purpose USB port can be used to add capabilities like recording to removable media and wireless networking.
Full-function versions of the ANET1553 enable concurrent operation as a bus controller, 31 remote terminals, and bus monitor on one or two dual-redundant streams per module. Single-function and simulator-only versions are also available. Each module has a built-in configuration application that is accessible via any standard Web browser.
Module functions include full MIL-STD-1553A/B protocol error injection and detection (AS4112/4111-compliant), multilevel triggering and filtering, real-time recording, and physical bus replay. The physical bus interface provides programmable bus-coupling modes and variable output amplitude to the 1553A/B bus. In addition, the ANET1553 offers IRIG-B time encoding/decoding, eight software-controllable GPIO lines, and dedicated trigger I/O strobes.
