MIL-STD-1553 / MIL-STD-1760 IP Core

Friday, April 20, 2018

Mission Viejo, CA (April 18, 2018) – Holt Integrated Circuits today announced the release of the new HI-6300 MIL-STD-1553 / MIL-STD-1760 IP core for military and commercial applications. The core is based on Holt’s independently-validated monolithic protocol ICs for MIL-STD-1553, namely Holt’s HI-6130 and MAMBATM families, and is fully software compatible with them.

The IP Core supports Bus Controller (BC), Monitor Terminal (MT) or Remote Terminal (RT) functions, with all options having a high-performance synchronous host interface allowing easy connection to AMBA AXI4 interface protocol or PCI-Express. Enabled terminals communicate with the MIL-STD-1553 buses through a shared dual bus transceiver, HI-1587, and external isolation transformer, also available from Holt.

The HI-6300 is the only MIL-STD-1553 IP Core providing native Error Detection and Correction on the embedded 8K or 64K words of block RAM. The user provided input clock is selectable from 50 or 100MHz. A comprehensive built-in self-test is available. MIL-STD-1760 busy bit response time is supported with an external input signal. 

The HI-1587 is the world’s first MIL-STD-1553 transceiver featuring 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V compatible digital I/O and includes an integrated IP security module eliminating the need for a separate dongle chip to unlock the IP.

“This MIL-STD-1553 IP core provides our customers with an alternative to a hardware-based design solution”, said Sean Sleicher, Director of Business Development at Holt. “Customers already utilizing FPGAs in their design can easily add MIL-STD-1553 functionality to their application by taking advantage of Holt’s proven IP core.”

The Holt IP core product includes the HI-6300 IP Core, a Verilog test bench, and supporting documentation, allowing designers to instantiate the core in a variety of FPGA implementations.

Also available is a high-level API software library supporting Linux, VxWorks, or bare metal implementations. The API is compatible with competitor legacy APIs allowing developers to reuse existing application software. Contact Holt directly for ordering details and information on DO-254 Certification Package supporting Design Assurance Level A.
