Holt Introduces Application Development Kit for MIL-STD-1553A/B/C Solution
Aliso Viejo, CA - Holt Integrated Circuits today announced the release of a new application development kit (ADK-6139) for its HI-6139, a new device with a software-controlled MIL-STD-1553A mode, but otherwise functionally identical and drop-in compatible with Holt’s existing HI-6138 MAMBATM device. It therefore provides the possibility of adding 1553A capability to any existing MAMBATM terminal design with minimal software changes. The MAMBATM family is currently the world’s smallest MIL-STD-1553 integrated solution, with a minimum footprint of only 6mm x 6mm.
The hardware consists of two boards; an upper HI-6139 board with configuration DIP switches, programmed self-configuration EEPROMs and two transformer-coupled MIL-STD-1553 bus interfaces. The lower microprocessor board has an ARM Cortex M3 16/32-bit MCU, JTAG debug interface and regulated 3.3VDC power supply. The HI-6139 board can be separated from the MCU board for connection to a user-supplied alternate microprocessor or FPGA platform.
The kit includes a software reference design written in ANSI C, illustrating operation of the device in 1553A mode. The project source code is easily customized and may be used as a starting point for customer application development, including MIL-STD-1553B or C terminal design.
“This kit provides customers with a complete reference design for MIL-STD-1553A applications,” said Anthony Murray, Director of Marketing Communications at Holt. “The included source code may be customized for specific customer application use, and provides the possibility of adding 1553A capability to any existing MAMBATM terminal design.”
