DDC Introduces 2 Channel MIL-STD-1553 ExpressCard for Portable Applications!

Bohemia, New York (March - 2010) — Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces its new MIL-STD-1553 BU-67101Q AceXtreme® ExpressCard, which turns any modern laptop or portable platform into a powerful data bus analysis tool.

The BU-67101Q is designed around DDC’s next generation AceXtreme® 1553 Core, featuring advanced 1553 functionality, leveraged by DDC’s unparalleled history of MIL-STD-1553 experience, support, and dependability. The BU-67101Q ExpressCard offers up to two dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 Channels, two user-programmable Digital Discrete I/O, and two user-programmable Avionics Discrete (+35V) I/O. Utilizing the ExpressCard/54 form factor, the card is a perfect fit for laptop and portable applications. Each 1553 channel can emulate a Bus Controller (BC), or 1-31 Remote Terminals (RTs), combined with a powerful independent Bus Monitor (MT).

Included with the card is DDC’s Common 1553 AceXtreme Software Development Kit, which increases productivity by enabling Test and Embedded designs to reuse all Application source code. And when combined with the optional BusTrACEr 1553 Monitor/Generator software package, programs can be created in minutes utilizing the application’s one-click automated source code generation. The BU-67101Q can also be used with DDC’s dataSIMS Bus Analysis and Simulation software package to create a complete environment of simulation, acquisition, display, and storage of real-time data. dataSIMS simulates and concurrently monitors multiple mixed MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and user I/O multiplex channels, performing real-time conversions of raw data to engineering-units, resulting in accurate, fast, and extensive numerical and graphical views of communications data. A LabVIEW support package is also available, providing intuitive, high-level virtual instruments and samples.

“The combination of ExpressCard’s portability and DDC’s AceXtreme® advanced MIL-STD-1553 functionality make the BU-67101Q ideal for box level troubleshooting, flight line and diagnostic testing, software development, system integration, automatic test applications, and all other 1553 applications that can benefit from real-time, in-service data bus analysis“, stated Sean Sleicher, DDC’s Data Bus Marketing Manager.
