Once again, Alta Data Technologies has pushed the boundaries of what is possible in the world of ARINC and 1553.

Following the success of their recent USB-MA4 appliance, Alta has again utilised the USB 3 SuperSpeed functionality in their new NLINE-U1553 appliance. Alta was the first, and still only company to offer modern USB 3 SuperSpeed interfaces for 1553 and ARINC.

The NLINE-U1553 embeds the industry leading MIL-STD-1553 protocol engine AltaCore™ technology directly into the 1553-USB cable assembly, giving the customer all the advanced 1553 BC, RT and BM controls of card-board-based products via USB connection.

Designed to combat the gradual phasing out of PCCARD, PCMCIA and Express interfaces from portable computers, the NLINE-U1553 joins Alta’s existing NLINE, USB and Thunderbolt product family, which provides the best solution for mobile 1553 and ARINC applications. The first 1553 NLINE real-time Ethernet converter has proven to be a big hit with customers, and now with a USB 3 option, the NLINE-U1553 open-up all kinds of flexible 1553 integration ideas. Alta Data has invested significant time and capital to ensure they can manufacture and test these products for the utmost rugged, in-line 1553 capability.

The NLINE-U1553 implements the latest USB 3 SuperSpeed technology for 1-2 dual redundant, independent 1553 channels, full function capability and o-scope signal capture, all built into a small, rugged cable assembly that allows the customer to connect with standard 1553 jack connectors or their own custom Lemo cable.

Alta is dedicated to providing the best possible MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC-429/717 COTS communications products and services in the Aerospace Industry. From a full line of Interface Cards for almost any computer backplane to Thunderbolt and USB appliances to their innovative real-time Ethernet and NLINE connectivity devices, all backed with the industry’s best 5-year limited warranty.
