Holt Integrates Transformers in Low Profile 3.3V MIL-STD-1553 BC/MT/RT Solution

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Mission Viejo, CA (May 21, 2015) - Holt Integrated Circuits, a world leader in data bus IC’s for commercial and military avionics, today announced a low profile MIL-STD-1553 fully integrated terminal solution. The device, HI-2130, contains MIL-STD-1553 protocol logic, dual transceivers and dual transformers in a low profile compact package.

The HI-2130 die is hermetically sealed on a ceramic BGA substrate and dual transformers are mounted in the same package. The ceramic substrate allows extended temperature operation from −55oC to +125oC, exceeding operating temperatures of competing integrated devices. The device operates over the full temperature range with no heat sink and no duty cycle or bus load constraints.

The HI-2130 combines the functionality of Holt’s HI-6130 and HI-6131, giving the user a choice of 16-bit parallel bus or SPI host interface in a single package. In addition, the new HI-2130 provides the added benefit of integrated transformers in a lower profile and smaller footprint than the original HI-6130 solution, offering customers a compact low cost solution.

Anthony Murray, Director of Marketing Communications at Holt, stated “Customers will benefit from a reduced height, smaller footprint, wider operating temperatures, higher reliability and much lower cost compared to competitive offerings.”

Each device contains a Bus Controller (BC), a Bus Monitor Terminal (MT) and two independent Remote Terminals (RTs). Any combination of the contained MIL STD-1553 functions can be enabled for concurrent operation. The enabled terminals communicate with the MIL-STD-1553 buses through integral dual bus transceivers and transformers. The user allocates 64K bytes of on-chip static RAM between terminals to suit application requirements. The 32K x 16-bit RAM has an error detection and correction option which provides additional robustness in high altitude or other applications subject to SEU events. The HI-2130 can also be configured for automatic self-initialization via a dedicated SPI port from an external serial EEPROM memory.

Samples are available now on request from Holt.
