The BU-65569T/BX is a single-channel or multi-channel MIL-STD-1553 CompactPCI / PMC card. The BU-65569T/BX includes one to four dual redundant 1553 channels on a convection-cooled card.
The BU-65569T/BX is available with front or rear panel I/O. The BU-65569TX has front panel I/O only, where the 1553 signals are routed through the front panel connector. The BU-65569BX has user selectable routing of 1553 signals through the front and/or rear panel connector
The design of the BU-65569T/BX leverages the Enhanced Mini-ACE. Each channel may be independently programmed for BC, RT, Monitor, or RT/Monitor mode.
Advanced architectural features of the Enhanced Mini-ACE include a highly autonomous bus controller, an RT providing a wide variety of buffering options, and a selective message monitor. Each Enhanced Mini-ACE channel incorporates 64K words of RAM, and utilizes 3.3 volt logic to reduce power consumption.
