What is MIL-STD-1553?
MIL-STD-1553 was published as a U.S. Air Force standard in 1973, and first was used on the F-16 Falcon fighter aircraft. It was originally designed as an avionic data bus for use with military avionics, but has also become commonly used in spacecraft on-board data handling (OBDH) subsystems, both military and civil. It now is widely used by all branches of the U.S. military and has been adopted by NATO as STANAG 3838 AVS. MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard that defines the mechanical, electrical, and functional characteristics of a serial data bus.

Sarsen Technology supplies and supports an extensive line of MIL-STD-1553 hardware from Alta Data, including multi-channel interface cards for most computer backplanes and real-time Ethernet converters. We can also offer software development kits and APIs which allows users to quickly and reliably integrate a MIL-STD-1553 network to their application. Most of the cards/devices have signal capture and signal generation capability, and can both execute and pass the SAE-AS4111 5.2 protocol tests. All cards/devices are available with Dual Function (BC/BM or mRT/BM) for Full Function (BC/mRT/BM) configurations.

All 1553 and ARINC products from Alta Data are designed and manufactured to the highest industry standards, including management processes certified to ISO 9001:2015, IPC Class 3 and ANSI S.20.20 certified manufacturing and innovative functional and JTAG testing methods.
