Sital’s Mil-Std-1553 IP core for FPGA still orbiting the moon on board NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

Back in 2005 NASA chose Sital's product after a rigorous selection process during which it was thoroughly tested against several other competing products. The IP core was implemented inside a space environment hardened Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to create a general purpose MIL-STD-1553B Remote Terminal, which is now in use by NASA for more than 20 projects since.

Sital\'s EBR-1553 IP Core is Now Available

Sital Technology's Enhanced Bit Rate (EBR) 1553 Intellectual Property core for FPGA is now available.

EBR-1553 is a 10Mbps bit rate protocol which utilized the robust Mil-Std-1553 protocol over RS-485 transceivers in a hub-based point-to-point connection. Using network topology of a star between BC and Remote Terminals enables high-speed and robust data transfer.

Sital's EBR-1553 IP core is based on Sital's proven 1553 IP cores, with DDC® Enhanced Mini-Ace® compatible interface. Bus Controller, Remote Terminals and Bus Monitor IP Core configurations are available. The core can work with any FPGA, and requires only standard RS-485 transceiver, which supports 10Mbps.

Users of Sital's EBR-1553 IP core can select the core configuration (BC, RT, MT), clock frequency, memory configuration and FPGA family. The back-end interface can be targeted to a local-bus, PCI bus or simple FIFO/registers read/write bus.

The IP Core is provided with software drivers which can be compiled for Windows, Linux, QNX, VxWorks along with high-level API. The API is fully compatible with DDC API, so that software developers already used to the DDC interface can easily transfer their existing applications to EBR.

An EBR-1553 tester is also available, utilizing the exact same hardware of the commonly used MultiComBoxT, with an updated firmware.

The EBR-1553 IP core joins the Sital's growing family of Mil-Std-1553, Arinc 429, CAN, WB-194 and other reliable serial bus communication IP cores and solutions.
