Abstract:

Many aspects of MIL-STD-1553B design have become routine, standard transceivers, encoder-decoders and nearly complete interfaces can be purchased. Bus controller and smart RT performance, however, is still evolving as capability beyond mere protocol handling is possible in an IO module. The Air Force Programmable Interface for Multiplex Systems project created a 1553 embeddable processor on a 6 x 9 module with sufficient power to support multiple dialects of MIL-STD-1553 operate as an independent processor executing an extensive general purpose instruction set. The conventions established for host-to-channel interface allow the channel to both efficiently execute bus lists and off load exception processing from the host. Author
