Alta Data Technologies Recognised as a Top Supplier by Aerospace and Defence Review for Third Straight Year

Meet the 1553 Experts

1553 boards

Posted May 10, 2023
Our industry leading partner for avionics interface cards and software that support the MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC-429 communication protocols is Alta Data Technologies. With over two decades of experience in the aerospace and defence industry, Alta Data has developed a range of 1553 boards and appliances that offer reliable and high-performance solutions for data communication and control systems.

The Alta Data 1553 boards are based on the MIL-STD-1553 standard, which defines the communication protocols for military and aerospace vehicles. The hardware is capable of transmitting and receiving data between different avionics systems and devices, ensuring that information is exchanged accurately and efficiently.

Alta Data offers a range of interface cards that utilise the 1553 bus. These cards are designed for use in a variety of applications, including flight test, mission simulation, data acquisition, and system integration. Some of the key features of these cards include high-speed data transfer rates, multiple channel support, advanced error detection and correction, and support for a wide range of operating systems and programming languages.

As well as cards, one of the most popular products we support here in the UK is the enet™ family of 1553 rugged Ethernet Convertors. These products provide real-time connectivity of 1553 operations on an Ethernet LAN.

ENET offers advanced BC, mRT and BM functions, and can provide an additional independent BM mode to auto bridge (transmit) 1553 messages on user defined IP/UDP packet header. The appliance can also auto-load setup images for fast auto start-up, which would be ideal for simple RT applications that wouldn’t even need an API interface (just a standard UDP interface – usually through simple socket programming).

Alta has combined their industry-leading 32-bit 1553 FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, with a real-time IP/UDP thin server. You can implement your application with the same feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, as used with Alta’s standard cards – often without even recompiling - the ultimate in code portability. Alta API provides a comprehensive set of libraries and tools for developing custom software applications that communicate with MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC-429 interface cards. The AltaAPI™ SDK supports a wide range of programming languages, including C/C++, Python, Java, and LabVIEW, and offers a user-friendly API that simplifies the development process.

Alta Data Technologies offers a comprehensive range of high-performance products and solutions for 1553 communication protocols. With their extensive experience in the aerospace and defense industry, Alta Data Technologies has developed products that offer reliable and robust solutions for avionics data communication and control systems.
