Alta DT -  Real-Time Ethernet Backplane for 1553 Interface
Alta DT has released the PMCE-1553, an innovative new product that provides an Ethernet backplane interface to one or two dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 network busses.  

Based on a standard PMC card footprint, Alta has implemented an FPGA "thin-server" UDP technology to provide direct packet access to 1553 BC, mRT and BM setup memory, creating a real-time Ethernet to 1553 converter. Alta's advanced, modular software package, AltaAPI™, provides complete portability between applications written for PCI/PCI Express and Ethernet based products - the ultimate in code reuse and system flexibility. The customer may bypass Alta's software and have direct Ethernet access to 1553 memory for possible DO178 certified systems.
