Additional Information:

eNet2-1553™ is an innovative product that provides “remoting” of MIL-STD-1553 operations on 10/100/1000 Ethernet IP/UDP local area networks (LAN). eNet2-1553 is a small, low-power, rugged device that provides real-time Ethernet connectivity to for two dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 (A/B) busses. It is ideal for remoting MIL-STD-1553 connections for in-field applications or point-point lab usage.

Alta has combined the industry’s most advanced 32-bit 1553 FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, with a real-time IP/UDP thin server. The customer can implement their application with the same feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, as used with standard cards – often without even recompiling – the utlimate in code portability.

**NOTE: eNet2-1553 (server) is a real-time Ethernet/1553 device, but your computers’ (client) IP stack may not be! The eNet2-1553 device provides real-time UDP receive and transmit requests (<10 uSecs) to 1553 buffers, but the client’s IP/UDP stack will induce path delays as compared to backplane cards. For many applications (<100-2000 packets per second), this product will provide unparalleled flexibility in 1553 configurations (much better than USB devices). Contact Alta for test results on various OS and computer configurations – your system results may vary.
