2 Channels, MIL-STD-1553/1760 Communications Interface

Based on the MIL-STD-1553 signal and interface backbone, MIL-STD-1760 defines a standardized electrical interface to address additional aircraft weapons stores management and as such, includes some special requirements. The FTK module meets the operational requirements within the general specifications of MIL-STD-1760 as applied to an integrated I/O function module, and include special designed holt transceivers to ensure signal parameter operation and integrity.

Module FTK provides programmable 2-channels, dual-redundant and transformer-coupled interfaces.

  • Support for RT and BM combination
  • 64 words on-board memory/channel
  • IP-core register-compatible with DDC™ family of devices
  • Automatic message return supported
  • Automatic message retry
  • Multiple message processing
  • Hardware acceleration for rapid setup/message Tx/Rx

  • Number of Channels: 2 Transformer-Coupled Channels
  • IP Core: HOLT IP-core register compatible/hardware acceleration for rapid setup, transmission and/or reception of packets.
  • Onboard RAM: 64K words onboard memory per channel
  • Operational Modes: Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), Bus Monitor (BM), or BM/RT
  • Output Signal: At 28 Vp-p, as per MIL-STD-1553 & MIL-STD-1760
  • Power: 5 VDC at 600 mA estimated at 100% duty cycle (TBV)
