UEI: MIL Bus Interface Boards
MIL-Std Bus interface boards.
Walpole, MA — United Electronic Industries (UEI) has released its DNA/DNR-1553-553 two-channel, dual redundant, 1553 bus interface boards. Each board provides two independent, dual redundant bus interfaces for 1553 communication. The DNA version is compatible with UEI PowerDNA and UEIPAC "Cubes" while the DNR version is designed for use in the company's 12- and 6-slot RACKtangle chassis.

Each port may be independently configured as a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), or Bus Monitor (BM). Designed to function in harsh environments, the DNA/DNR-1553-553 is fully tested for operation from -40 to +85°C, 0 to 70,000-ft and can withstand 5g vibration and up to 50g shock.

The company's powerful "Cube" architecture is a compact (4 x 4 x 4-in. or 4 x 4 x 5.8-in.) Ethernet based I/O platform. It may be deployed in four different configurations: Ethernet I/O systems slaved to a host PC; Standalone Data Logger/Recorder; Linux-based Programmable Automation Controller (PAC); or Modbus TCP based I/O slave.

Each Cube consists of a core module that holds the processor and network interface, along with three or six open I/O slots. Users select the deployment option that meets their requirements. Users then match the Cube's I/O configuration to their application by selecting the appropriate boards. According to the company, thee are over 25 I/O boards available, providing a configuration to meet almost any application requirement. The six slot Cube provides up to 150 analog inputs, 192 analog outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels, 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports, or 12 1553 channels.
