AceXtreme® Two Channel MIL-STD-1553 ExpressCard


Part Number(s): BU-67101Q
Package: ExpressCard

The BU-67101Q is an ExpressCard/54 device, designed for interfacing to a MIL-STD-1553 data bus. There are up to two dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 channels operating in Bus Controller (BC) or Multi-RT (0 to 31) modes. Each mode has the ability to run a concurrent Bus Monitor (MT). The card also contains two digital discrete I/Os, two avionics (+35V) Discrete I/Os, IRIG-B Time Code Input, and a Time Tag Clock Input.

The interface used on this card is DDC's AceXtreme® architecture, an extension of the field proven Enhanced Mini-ACE family of 1553 products. The card includes the BU-69092SX series software, which is DDC's MIL-STD-1553 AceXtreme® C Software Development Kit (SDK). It supports all modes of operation (BC, Multi-RT, MT), including source code samples and detailed documentation. Optional software packages include the BusTrACEr 1553 Graphical Analyzer/Simulator, dataSIMS Real-Time Avionics Bus Analysis & Simulation Software, and a full featured LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time package.


The BU-67101Q MIL-STD-1553 ExpressCard is suited for a wide variety of applications including, but not limited to box level ground testing, simulation, portable test equipment, flight line test and diagnostic, software development, system integration, and debugging. The card enhances the work of developers, integrators, testers, field personnel and flight test crew through advanced 1553 capabilities that are accessible in a portable form factor.
