MIL-1553 Training | MIL-STD-1553 Training Course Hands-on

MIL-STD-1553 Training course by Eno covers MIL-STD-1553 protocol architecture, functional characteristics, technical components, design, operations, products, testing and trends.

MIL-STD-1553, or AS15531 is a military standard, Digital Time Division Command/Response Multiplex Data Bus, published by DoD that defines the mechanical, electrical and functional characteristics of a serial data bus. It features a dual redundant balanced line physical layer, a (differential) network interface, time division multiplexing, half-duplex command/response protocol and up to 31 remote terminals (devices). MIL-STD-1773 is a version of MIL-STD-1553 using optical cabling.
