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.

Key Features

  • Four modules can work at the same time as a bus controller, remote terminal or bus monitor
  •  Configurable IP, MAC, gateway and subnet address
  • Save simulation data in .pcap and .txt formats
  • Manuel error can be added to measure fault performance
  • Different transmission modes in BC mode: continuous, single or N-times
  • Scenarios can be made active/passive during the simulation run
  • Data to be sent in response to Tx commands can be updated during the simulation run
  • Up to 16 remote terminals can be simulated and each remote terminal can define up to 30 sub address
  • Remote terminals and sub-addresses can be made active/passive during the simulation run
