Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces the Nano-ACE® BC/RT/MT MIL-STD-1553 terminal, the latest evolution in the highly successful Enhanced Mini-ACE® series, which has been in operation since 1999 with more than 800 million hours of in-service history. This new Nano-ACE® (BU-67833LC), which is an upgraded version of the BU-67743LC Nano-ACE RT, offers complete BC/RT/MT functionality, along with increased 32K x 17 RAM including parity capability, comprehensive autonomous built-in self-test, and the option to auto-initialize from an external EEPROM. The Nano-ACE® BC/RT/MT utilizes a fast 50MHz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) to reduce pin count and package size, enabling users to benefit from DDC’s market leading 1553 functionality and reliability, in an ultra-small package that provides the ability to create more compact and higher density boards. The BU-67833LC Nano-ACE’s highly efficient +3.3V transceivers minimize power consumption and heat dissipation, enabling further board miniaturization through the use of smaller power and heat sinking components.
“The Nano-ACE® BC/RT/MT continues DDC’s commitment to provide increased functionality in smaller packaging, while preserving backwards compatibility, enabling designers to create more compact and higher density boards”, stated Mike Hegarty, Product Line Manager, Data Bus Components.
