MIL-STD-1553 Four-Channel VME Board for RT, BC and Monitor Applications

The V-Orchestra™ is a four channel MIL-STD-1553B board, which includes Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT) and Monitor (MT) capability for each channel. V-Orchestra channels are software compatible to DDC® Enhanced Mini-ACE® components and architecture, with 64K word of internal RAM. Software drivers for Windows, Linux and QNX, along with high-level API, are available to ease application development. The Luthier™ program for MIL-STD-1553 bus simulation and analysis is also provided. This software includes an advanced GUI (Graphical User Interface) for controlling the board, generating MIL-STD-1553 traffic, monitoring and emulating a real bus environment.

V-Orchestra Functionality
The module is designed as a general purpose VME bus based module with 4 single channels of MIL-STD-1553 communication.

Two configuration options are available:
  • BRD1553VME-8 - Eight independent channels, individually programmable as RT, BC or Monitor with individual transceiver and physical media for each MIL-STD-1553 node, with 32K word RAM per channel, or
  • BRD1553VME-4 - Four independent channels with dual redundant transceivers and transformers, individually programmable as RT, BC or Monitor, with 64K word RAM per channel.

The board supports five (5) programmable interrupt sources (IRQ3 - IRQ7 of VME bus). Memory Base Address is settable through strapping options on the VME P2 connector, or at the P3 and P4 DB25 connectors. LED indications for device healthiness and data exchange via communication channel are available.

Provided Software

API Drivers
All MIL-STD-1553 boards are provided with drivers for Microsoft® Windows®, Linux and a high level API, which is provided as source code.

Luthier
Luthier software is a Windows application, which enables testing and verifying basic operation of the board and MIL-STD-1553 connections. It enables the user to configure the channels as BC, RT or Monitor, define MIL-STD-1553 messages and frames, monitor the traffic on the bus and validate the correct operation of the board. This easy-to-operate program also provides information about energy reflections on the MIL-STD-1553 bus, which are caused by bad connections or lack of terminations.

Flexible Configuration
V-Orchestra boards are based on FPGA and proven MIL-STD-1553 IP cores and transceivers. This combination provides flexibility in configuration, modes of operation and features. Users can request different configurations such as combination of single and dual-redundancy channels, data transfer from one channel to another (MIL-STD-1553 repeater functionality) and even support for other protocols such as H009 and PP194.
