DS4401 MIL-STD-1553 Interface Board

Interface to MIL-STD-1553 networks
  • Connects dSPACE systems to the MIL-STD-1553 serial bus
  • Integrated MIL-STD-1553 controller DDC BU-61580
  • Supports dual-redundant data busses
  • C functions for controlling the DS4401, including creating, reading, and updating MIL-STD-1553 messages

Application Areas
In avionic applications such as aircraft or satellites, MIL-STD-1553 is the preferred standard for medium-speed data communication. The DS4401 provides the link between the MIL-STD-1553 serial bus and the dSPACE real-time system. Typical applications are in the field of rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop simulation.

Key Benefits
The DS4401 supports dual-redundant data busses, which can be either directly coupled or transformer-coupled. The integrated MIL-STD-1553 controller gives you the greatest possible flexibility. Depending on your application, you can configure the controller to act either as a remote terminal or as a bus controller. A slave DSP handles all data exchange with the processor board, resulting in faster communication.

Supported Standards
The DS4401 MIL-STD-1553 Interface Board supports a variety of standards:
  • MIL-STD-1553
  • STANAG 3838 AVS
  • DEF-STAN 00-18
  • Air-Std 50/2
