Abstract : Unique design challenges are created when incorporating MIL-STD-1553B into a low cost tactical missile system. The designer is challenged by the requirement to minimize host computer interaction with bus events, while utilizing off-the-shelf-components on a single 5.8 inch x 4.8 inch printed circuit card. Further demands are imposed by the requirement to integrate the triple functions of bus controller, remote terminal, and monitor terminal into a single design. This paper addresses one set of solutions to these and related problems. The paper will also review the process by which the card was designed, and the solutions to the general challneges faced in any 1553B implementation. (Author)
