SBS Technologies, Inc., Avionics Products (formerly SBS Avionics Technologies) introduces its new, enhanced ABI-PCM2 and ASF-PCM2. Ideal for embedded avionics applications, these products provide flexible, full function or single function MIL-STD-1553 interfaces in a PCMCIA Card.
"Both the ABI-PCM2 and ASF-PCM2 interfaces were designed for 1553 applications where size and weight are critical," said Rich Wade, General Manager of SBS Technologies, Inc., Avionics Products. "Actual space limitations in projects such as the International Space Station offer opportunities for the use of the PCMCIA format for monitoring and troubleshooting of the 1553 busses located on the Station."
How it Works
The new ABI-PCM2 and ASF-PCM2 interfaces provide flexible, full function or single function MIL-STD-1553 interfaces to PCMCIA systems. The primary enhancement to the product is the elimination of the external transceiver box required with the older ABI-PCM and ASF-PCM products. This makes the total product package more compact without sacrificing capability. The ABI-PCM2 provides concurrent and independent operation of a Bus Controller (BC), 31 Remote Terminals (RT), and sequential and/or mapped Bus Monitoring (BM). The ASF-PCM2 provides similar capability in a single-function mode BC or a single RT or Monitoring. These products provide a complete 1553 interface, including 1553A and/or 1553B selections, programmable BC frame lists, BC scheduling capabilities, RT response tables, pointer-driven transmit and receive buffers, mapped monitoring, sequential bus monitoring, and extensive programmable event interrupts.
