Forty years since its release, MIL-STD-1553 is evolving from traditional Integrated Circuits (ICs) to Intellectual Property (IP) cores integrated with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). The advantages of IP core implementation include cost reduction, the ability to upgrade and adapt a design over time, a smaller size footprint and improved sourcing. Designers choosing IP cores must consider validation testing, code size, FPGA support and compatibility with legacy software.
To learn more about IP Cores and how Sealevel can help integrate them into your MIL-STD-1553 application, download the PDF article that appeared in the Feb/Mar 2014 issue of Military Embedded Systems.
