MIL-STD-1553 standard was published and coined over 30 years ago and is still used to test the quality standard in the avionics industry.
This standard was initially intended to be used only in military avionics but has gradually been used in spacecraft with on-board data systems as well as military and civilian issues.
DDC fully complies with this standard, so that MIL-STD-1553 is integrated in its assortment of cards and components in order to improve data conversion needs and its interface.
DDC's data bus board systems, in relation to MIL-STD-1553, are dedicated entirely to integral elements of avionics, military and industrial applications. Within the broad line of military components can be highlighted microprocessors, PCI buses and simple systems. In addition, these solutions are designed to be applied globally in aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles and missile programs.
