Ultra Compact USB Card Adds MIL-STD-1553 to Any Embedded or Portable Application!

Bohemia, New York (March 2012) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces the world’s smallest 2 channel MIL-STD-1553 Small Form Factor (SFF) USB card. The card’s USB form factor, ultra small size, lightweight, ultra low power, ruggedness, and high reliability are an ideal combination for adding a reliable and cost effective 1553 bus interface to any embedded system, laptop, or tablet computer.

The BU-67113U board is designed with DDC’s advanced Total-AceXtreme™ MIL-STD-1553 fully integrated components to provide very high reliability (MTBF) in an ultra low power, miniaturized board. Each channel can be configured in Bus Controller (BC) / Monitor (MT) mode, or Multi-Remote Terminal (RT) / MT mode, with BC disable and Tx inhibit options for RT and MT only applications. The board provides a locking USB connection allowing the system designer to locate this card anywhere inside a system with a USB receptacle.

Benefits include:

  • Complete MIL-STD-1553 Hardware and Software Solution
  • Ideal for Laptops, Tablet Computers, and Rugged Small Embedded Systems
  • Save Time and Reduce Costs:
    • Common Test/Embedded API for Rapid Prototyping with Less Programming Time
    • Program in Minutes with BusTrACEr™ Automated Application C Code Generation

“With this Small Form Factor USB board engineers can now fit a full range of MIL-STD-1553 functionality into the tight confines of portable and embedded applications by simply interfacing to an available USB receptacle inside the system”, stated George Los, DDC’s Data Bus Product Manager.
