Virtual MIL-STD-1553B Remote Terminals
- Magazine Article
For complex boards with multiple FPGAs, each FPGA can implement its own remote terminal (RT) core and present itself logically to the bus as a remote terminal while sharing the RT’s hardware. This simplifies the design since commands and telemetry do not have to be distributed and collected by user logic; instead, the MIL-STD-1553B protocol does the work. Thus, the designer is more efficient, the system is simpler, and often the system is smaller and lower power.
