The ASF-V6 is a flexible interface providing a single function, one to four channel, dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 interface to the VMEbus system. This Advanced Single Function (ASF) architecture provides operation as a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), or dual function Bus Monitoring (BM). The ASF-V6 provides user defined linked lists of data buffers and sequential 1553 activity. The user can time stamp and/or double buffer the 1553 activity. Both monitoring modes, Map and Sequential, perform broad error monitoring. They also provide a comprehensive error table that the host processor can read at any time.

SBS bases the ASF interface upon an advanced high-speed DSP, programmable logic and dual port RAM. It delivers a highly reliable hardware platform that is feature rich and user friendly. Through the 128 kB of dual port RAM per channel, the host processor has access to set up, monitor, and change the 1553 interface data structures at any time. Link-list memory architecture allows the user to structure interface memory usage for the maximum in flexibility and usefulness. The ASF-V6 provides storage for on-board firmware via Flash Memory.
