New Ultra-Compact 1553 Magnetics Solutions Save Space & Optimize System Connectivity

Bohemia, New York (August 2020) – Data Device Corporation (DDC) announces the release of two new ultra-compact 1553 magnetics components that provide size and weight savings, enabling minimized package design and optimized system connectivity.

The new ULP series 1553 isolation transformers are the world’s smallest single channel isolation devices, providing a 46% smaller size with 32% less weight than what was previously available. This achievement enables LRU box manufacturers to fit these isolation transformers near edge connectors for more efficient data transmission and package design.

The new DBM series data bus couplers utilize the world’s smallest coupler housing body, at 1.1” (27.9 mm) long by 0.31” (7.9 mm) high, enabling more compact packaging with greater flexibility options for integrating harness assemblies with LRU’s on the aircraft, providing optimized system connectivity.

Benefits include:

  • Optimized system design enabled through these smallest size and lightest weight solutions
  • Highest reliability, flight qualified to MIL-PRF-21038
  • Exceeds military temp requirements with -55°C to +130°C operating range
  • 100% compatible with all DDC 1553 transceivers

“We often hear from OEM customers of a need for components that are smaller and lighter. To meet this need we developed these ultra-miniature transformers and couplers, enabling critical space and weight savings in both retrofit and new platform developments," said Estro Vitantonio, Business Unit Manager for the DDC Magnetics Group.
