Abstract : Many aspects of MIL-STD-1553B design have become routine, standard transceivers, encoder-decoders and nearly complete interfaces can be purchased. Bus controller and smart RT performance, however, is still evolving as capability beyond mere protocol handling is possible in an I/O module. The Air Force Programmable Interface for Multiplex Systems project created a 1553 embeddable processor on a 6 x 9 module with sufficient power to support multiple dialects of MIL-STD-1553 operate as an independent processor executing an extensive general purpose instruction set. The conventions established for host-to-channel interface allow the channel to both efficiently execute bus lists and off load exception processing from the host. (Author)
