Acromag IP570, IOS-570 MIL-STD 1553 Bus Modules for Embedded Systems

Acromag introduced the IP570 and IOS-570 MIL-STD 1553 bus modules for interfacing avionics and weapons subsystems to embedded control systems. The IP570 is an Industry Pack ANSI/VITA-4 card that plugs into VME, CompactPCI, and PCI bus mezzanine carrier cards or high-performance single-board computers. IOS-570 is designed for use within Acromag’s I/O Server industrial PC, a small fanless box computer. Both Acromag board features a choice of one or two interface channels. A DDC Micro-ACE device controls the 1553 interface. Extended temperature models support -40 to 85°C operation. Pricing for the 1553 bus modules start at $1695.
