1553 Test System
The 1553 test system is used to test systems using the MIL-STD-1553 communication protocol. The test system consists of a test card and a test program. The FPGA on the test card is programmed with 1553 IP Core, which is developed in-house. The relevant units are tested by selecting the appropriate operating mode (BC, RT, or BM) and scenario files via the test program. The test system tests these units by sending the user data it receives over the Ethernet interface to the units on the 1553 bus. There are four modules in the 1553 test system. Each module can be programmed as a bus controller, remote terminal, or bus monitor. 1553 test system can be controlled with the use of an Application Programming Interface (API) that cover all functions of the device.
