AME1553-1-E is a PCI Express Mini Card targeted for embedded MIL-STD-1553B applications. The module provides a dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 interface, which concurrently acts as Bus Controller, Multiple Remote Terminals (31) and Chronological/Mailbox Monitor.
It supports 2 discrete input and 2 discrete output signals to be monitored or generated. In addition 1 trigger input and 1 trigger output are provided. An onboard high-precision free-wheeling IRIG-B time decoder supports time tagging on all AME1553-1-E models and allows users to accurately synchronise modules to a common IRIG-B time source.
It offers Transformer Coupling to the databus. With the provided onboard flash memory the components boot up autonomously after power up. Therefore the cards are well prepared for embedded applications requiring fast and autonomous boot up to operational mode.
A common Application Programming Interface (API) supports all AIM MIL-STD-1553 modules. The card is designed to meet vibration requirements as specified in ANSI/VITA 47 for class V3. It is also designed to meet the shock requirements specified in ANSI/VITA 47 for class OS2.
