Data Device Corporation (DDC) has introduced the world’s first fully integrated 1553 terminal, the Total-ACE™, consolidating all the necessary MIL-STD-1553 components within a single, small, cost-effective PBGA package. The BU-64843T Total-ACE comprises a complete interface between a host computer and a MIL-STD-1553 bus that simplifies design, procurement and qualification processes.
The Total-ACE integrates dual transceivers, dual transformers, protocol engine and 4K words of internal RAM, and is fully software and hardware compatible with DDC’s Enhanced Mini-ACE® series of devices. The BU-64843T is powered entirely by +3.3V, and offers an extended -40°C to +100°C industrial temperature range. Additionally, the Total-ACE is DO-254 certifiable and is available in RoHS compliant versions.
“Total-ACE demonstrates DDC’s continuous commitment to data bus innovation by integrating 1553 protocol, transceiver and transformers into one compact package,” states Mike Hegarty, DDC’s data bus marketing manager.
