Acromag AcroPack AP571 and AP572 MIL-STD-1553 communication modules

Monday, 08 October, 2018 | Supplied by: Metromatics Pty Ltd



Acromag has expanded its offering of AcroPack rugged I/O modules based on the PCI Express mini card standard with two MIL-STD-1553 communication modules.

The AP571 provides single-function MIL-STD-1553 communication and the AP572 provides full multifunction databus communication. Both models provide one dual redundant channel with four open/ground avionics level discrete I/O signals in addition to IRIG-B I/O and Trigger I/O.

A high-performance SoC architecture features dual-core RISC processors tightly coupled to large programmable logic for host CPU offload and real-time functionality. With 128 MB global RAM onboard for data scheduling and buffering, the module can operate at full bus rates. Designed for COTS applications, the mPCIe mezzanine modules deliver a SWaP-optimised solution for avionics test, simulation and monitoring applications.

A variety of carrier cards are available to host a mix of up to four AcroPack I/O modules on PCI Express, VPX or XMC computer platforms. The hardware architecture provides substantial computing and memory resources ensuring all functions can run concurrently at full performance specifications.

AcroPack mezzanine modules improve on the mini PCI Express architecture by adding a down-facing 100-pin connector that securely routes the I/O through a carrier card without any loose internal cabling. Carrier cards in PCIe, VPX and XMC formats let the user combine up to four I/O function modules from more than 25 available models in a single computer slot. Software tools support embedded applications running on Linux, Windows or VxWorks operating systems.

All the key features and functions from Acromag’s larger platforms are now available in a small package.
