Kfar Saba, Israel - April 5, 2012 -- Sital Technology announced today that it completed the design of Enhanced Bit Rate (EBR) 1553 Intellectual Property core for FPGA.
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 for Windows, Linux, QNX 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 MultiComBox™, only with an updated firmware.
"We are very pleased that we can now deliver high-speed EBR-1553 IP to our customers" said Duli Yariv, Sital's VP Sales and Marketing. "Customers will enjoy the robustness of the 1553 protocol at high speed of 10Mbps over the very low cost RS-485 transceivers, with the ability to easily integrate the core into their FPGA and application" he added.
Ofer Hofman, Sital's CTO pointed that "unlike other vendors' solutions, Sital's is a complete solution that includes all modes of operation - BC, RT and Monitor - along with software drivers and EBR tester hardware".
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.
