MIL-STD-1553B - Single/Dual/Quad Channel, Dual Redundant

Modules FT1 – FT6

Modules FT1FT6 are NAI’s latest generation MIL-STD-1553B - Single/Dual/Quad Channel Dual-Redundant Communication Modules. These modules feature up to four dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553B, Notice 2-compliant interface channels. They are used on our multifunction embedded boards and SBCs. Each channel can be configured to act as a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), or Bus Monitor (BM).

MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard published by the United States Department of Defense that defines the mechanical, electrical, and functional characteristics of a serial data bus. It was originally designed for use with military avionics, but has also become commonly used in spacecraft On-Board-Data-Handling (OBDH) subsystems, both military and civil. It features a dual, redundant, balanced-line, physical layer; a (differential) network interface; time division multiplexing; half-duplex command/response protocol; and up to 31 remote terminals (devices).

Modules FT1 – FT3 provide programmable 1-, 2- or 4-channel, dual-redundant, transformer-coupled interfaces, respectively.
Modules FT4 – FT6 provide programmable 1-, 2- or 4-channel dual-redundant, direct-coupled interfaces, respectively. 

Contact NAI for special programs requiring MIL-STD-1553 protocol with RS422 hardware interface levels.
