APC Hi-Rel Introduces Holt’s Newest Military Spec IP Core to the UK market
Available in the UK from APC Hi-Rel, Holt Integrated Circuits has announced the release of its 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 APC Hi-Rel.
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 100 MHz. A comprehensive built-in self-test is available. MIL-STD-1760 busy bit response time can be 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.
The Holt IP core product range 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.
