Modules offer avionics-bus testing flexibility

MIL-STD-1553 test and simulation modules from AIM's ANET1553 series provide flexibility in avionics-bus testing wherever an Ethernet-based system is used. The modules feature on-board Linux, as well as a standard 10/100-Mpbs Ethernet interface. These features allow them to custom applications or execute embedded resource handling. Further capabilities, such as wireless networking and recording to removable media, can be added via a general-purpose USB port.

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), multi-level 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.
