Alta Data Technologies Releases USB 3.0 Mil-Std-1553 And ARINC Interface

Alta Data Technologies Releases USB 3.0 Mil-Std-1553 And ARINC Interface
09/03/2020

Sarsen Technology and Alta Data Technologies (Alta) are pleased to announce an innovative USB MIL-STD-1553 (1553) and ARINC-429 product: USB-MA4. This product connects notebooks, desktops and servers with 1553 and ARINC networks via USB 3.0 SuperSpeed – a first in the industry. The USB-MA4, which is about the size of a standard deck of cards, provides 1-2 dual redundant 1553 channels, and/or 8 ARINC-429 channels. In addition to 1553/ARINC full RX/TX message controls, USB-MA4 can generate or capture (o-scope) raw bus signals for protocol and electrical troubleshooting.

“Alta’s USB-MA4 product is the latest peripheral interconnect technology for 1553 and ARINC avionics buses (networks). A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed 1553/ARINC product has been eagerly awaited in the market as current USB 2.0 interfaces can have serious throughput issues. Along with Alta’s real-time Ethernet (ENET) converter and Thunderbolt appliances, and industry leading interface cards, Alta now has the most complete 1553 and ARINC product offering in the industry,” announces Nigel Norman, MD, Sarsen Technology.

Harry Wild, VP of Sales for Alta Data adds, “Upon releasing our Thunderbolt™ 3.0 appliance, TBOLT™, which provides near PCI Express backplane performance, we tested native USB 3.0 SuperSpeed and determined the throughput rates were acceptable for most moderate to high packet rate 1553 applications. While not providing backplane speeds equivalent to PCI Express (XMC) or PCI (PMC) interface cards, our USB-MA4 3.0 SuperSpeed product provides customers the convenience of a USB appliance without packet drops of typical USB 2.0 products. Along with our flexible, layered SDK, AltaAPI, and our AltaView Windows Analyzer, customers can quickly integrate the USB-MA4 for their avionics application. For most applications, the customer can port existing Alta Data applications to the USB-MA4 product with little or no code changes.”

The USB-MA4 is available now for immediate delivery. Contact Sarsen Technology for more information.
