Holt Integrated Circuits introduces an application development kit for the recently released HI-6130 MIL-STD-1553 multi-terminal device. This device provides a single-chip, 3.3V BC/MT/RT MIL-STD-1553 solution, including dual transceivers and 64K bytes RAM, in a compact surface-mount 100-pin PQFP package.

The kit gives the user an out-of-the-box evaluation platform demonstrating concurrent operation for any combination of bus controller and monitor, and one or two remote terminals. The hardware includes a two-board assembly, comprised of an upper HI-6130 board with dual transformer-coupled MIL-STD-1553 bus interfaces and a lower microprocessor board with ARM Cortex M3 16/32bit microprocessor, debug interface and regulated 3.3VDC power supply. The detachable upper HI-6130 board can be separated from the lower MCU board for connection to a user-supplied alternate microprocessor or FPGA board. All host interface signals are available through the inter-board headers for compatibility with generic prototyping boards.

These kits include a complete software reference design written in ANSI C. Example software supports concurrent operation for bus controller, two separate remote terminals and a simple or IRIG-106 compatible bus monitor. The example project software is easily customised, supporting any subset of the four terminal devices suit any MIL-STD-1553 application requirement, including BC message sequencing, IRIG-106 message storage and packet generation, auto-initialisation, message illegalisation, mode code handling, data buffering and interrupt management.

The kit includes an IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM evaluation version CD from IAR Systems. IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a fully functional integrated development environment including project management tools, optimising C/C++ compiler and debug interface for all ARM and Cortex A/R/M variants. The ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller board includes a "J-Link On Board" debug interface, providing easy connectivity to the IAR Systems tools via a standard USB cable provided with the kit. The HI-6130 Application Development Kit is now available.
