Amazing, Small, Rugged, In-Line 1553 Ethernet Converter: NLINE-E1553

Full Featured 1-2 Channel 1553 Interface Via Real-Time Ethernet

The world of technology doesn’t stand still for a second, and customers are always looking for the latest innovation to make their solution stand out from their competitors.

Alta Data is at the forefront of this innovation, and their new NLINE product family is one of the first and most unique Ethernet appliance offerings in the industry.

The NLINE series is the first full-featured 1553 solution embedded directly into rugged cable assemblies. The Alta team has invested in a significant amount of R&D to develop new packaging techniques to embed their 1553 design directly into MIL-810G/461F qualified cable assemblies. Customers can now literally just connect-up and go, it’s really that easy.

Unlike most 1553 Ethernet converter products which are processor/Linux based with unsecure IP network stacks that greatly slow down Ethernet communications, ENET and NLINE designs are FPGA hardware-based UDP thin servers that provide real-time Ethernet/1553 bridging/conversion, reducing threats of viruses or internal hacking. These products provide all the advanced controls of traditional 1553 interfaces, including full BC, RT, and BM 1553, but can also simultaneously auto bridge time-stamped 1553 UDP packets without any programming. There is a fast auto-boot feature where 1553 and MIL-1760 RX controls can be managed through standard socket communications as implemented in almost every OS, even DO-178 compliant systems.

Combined with their AltaAPI software development kit (SDK), and advanced signal capture o-scope capabilities, the NLINE series will offer unmatched functionality and ease of deployment for aerospace platforms.
The NLINE products are a logical extension to the already very successful ENET, and recently released, Thunderbolt and USB 3 appliances from Alta Data. The same real-time ENET Ethernet capabilities are available now with NLINE-E1553, and Thunderbolt and USB 3 versions are being released this spring.

We’re really excited about the NLINE product family. These new 1553 products for real-time Ethernet, Thunderbolt and USB 3 will provide incredible system design choices for our customers, and we’re keen to talk to you about how the NLINE could make a difference to your application.
