More

Abaco Systems RPCIE-1553 is the latest generation of performance and flexibility for MIL-STD-1553 A/B Notice II on a native PCI Express module. Available in -40°C to +70°C temperature with one, two or four dual-redundant channels, the RPCIE-1553 includes advanced API (Application Programming Interface) software that reduces application development time.

Standard features include IRIG-B signal Receiver/Generator with GPS synchronization, transformer coupling, 66 MHz, PCI bus support, 1 Mbyte of RAM per channel, 64-bit, 25 nanosecond message timetagging, triggers, extensive BC & RT link-list structures, error injection/detection, avionics level discretes, automatic/manual RT Status Bit and Mode Code responses, along with advanced BC functionality. Variable voltage output is optionally available. The RPCIE-1553 Bus Monitors provide unparalleled error detection and 100% monitoring of fully loaded buses.

The Abaco Systems MIL-STD-1553 product line is significantly enhanced to meet the varying requirements of end users. The internal MIL-STD-1553 Local Processing Unit (LPU) has undergone a major update to improve and expand performance, functionality and modularity.  The LPU version is 4.XX or 5.XX (V4/V5) on legacy firmware and version 6.XX (V6) on the new enhanced firmware. In addition to these LPU improvements, multiple other changes were added to enhance firmware and software modularity across multiple platforms.

V6 firmware is highly recommended for all new developments. Previous V4/V5 firmware has been deprecated and will no longer be actively developed but will continue to be supported.  Any future 1553 product features or enhancements will only be developed for the V6 firmware.

Using V6 firmware will require updating to BusTools/1553-API version 8.x or later.

Multi-function Interfaces
RPCIE-1553 multi-function interfaces are easily configured to operate with simultaneous Bus Controller, 31 Remote Terminals and Bus Monitor functionality.

 

Dual-function Interfaces 

Dual-function RPCIE-1553 interfaces have all the features and functionality of the multi-function versions, with either Bus Monitor and Bus Controller, or Bus monitor and up to 31 Remote terminals.

High Density PCI Express interface for simulation and test

Available in a range of configurations to match your needs, RAR-PCIE provides complete, integrated databus functionality for ARINC 429, ARINC 575 and selected 2-wire, 32-bit protocols. The RAR-PCIE supports maximum data throughput on all channels while providing onboard message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging, error detection and avionics-level I/O discretes. Configurations with support for ARINC 717, ARINC 573, and IRIG-B Receiver (AM or DC/TTL) and Generator (DC/TTL) support are optional. The RAR-PCIE's IRIG-B DC level signal can be utilized to synchronize time stamps across multiple boards.

Multiple channel configurations provide optimum application flexibility

The RAR-PCIE supports up to 32 ARINC 429 channels, (16 receivers and 16 transmitters), and is available in various ARINC 429 channel counts.  Several configurations offer combinations of ARINC 429 channels along with ARINC 717/573 Dual-Mode functionality. Dual-Mode functionality programmatically supports either HBP (Harvard Bi-Phase) or BPRZ (Bi- Polar Return to Zero) across a very wide range of Bit Rate/ Sub-frame combinations.

Software tools minimize integration effort, shorten time to implementation

Abaco Systems’ software tools and solutions significantly reduce the time required to integrate ARINC 429 and other avionics protocols into your application.

Abaco Systems (formerly GE Intelligent Platforms)

For 12 years, we were the embedded computing business of GE Intelligent Platforms - itself formed from a series fo acquisitions of market-leading embedded computing companies. 

The entire GE Intelligent Platforms team, around 700 people - made the transition from GE, meaning that our customers continue to deal with people with whom they've had relationships for years and in some cases, decades. 

Also making the transition from Ge are the robust, repeatable business processes for which the company is renowned - but these are now finely-tuned to the specific needs of our embedded computing customers.

We have brought with us from GE an absolute, all-overriding commitment to ethics. That commitment is fundamental and central to all our interactions with you. Trust is paramount to all our relationships. 

Abaco Systems products and solutions can be found in many high profile military/aerospace sea, land and air programs, as well as in commercial and industrial organizations in which rugged reliability is mission-critical. 

Abaco Systems is a global leader in open architecture rugged embedded systems. Spun out of GE in 2015 we combine the attitude and customer focus of a startup with 30 years of experience delivering rugged embedded computing products and solutions.
