Holt Integrated Circuits announces validation of world’s smallest MIL-STD-1553 remote terminal
Holt Integrated Circuits announced formal MIL-STD-1553 RT validation of HI-6130/31, the world’s smallest BC/MT/ RT multi-terminal solution.
Validation was performed at Test Systems, Inc., an independent Air Force approved testing service for MIL-STD-1553 remote terminals.
These devices provide a single-chip, 3.3V MIL-STD-1553 BC/MT/RT Terminal solution, including dual transceivers, in compact surface-mount plastic packages. The HI-6130 uses a 16-bit parallel host bus interface in a 100-pin PQFP package. The HI-6131 uses a 4-wire Serial Peripheral host Interface (SPI) and comes in a 64-pin PQFP or 64-pin QFN. The 64-pin QFN is the world’s smallest BC/MT/RT multi-terminal solution, at only 9mm x 9mm x 1mm.
Both devices handle all aspects of the MIL-STD-1553 protocol, including message encoding, decoding, error detection, illegal command detection and data buffering. Host data management is simplified by storing message information and data within the on-chip 32K x 16-bit static RAM, which has an error detection/correction option.
The devices are offered in industrial -40oC to + 85oC, or extended, -55oC to + 125oC temperature ranges, with optional burn-in available on the extended temperature range. In addition, each device has a dedicated Developer’s Kit which includes a demonstration board with on-board ARM Cortex M3 microprocessor, a 32Kbyte KickStart edition of IAR Systems Embedded Workbench IDE, cables and power supply.
