PARIS - Holt Integrated Circuits Mission Viejo, CA has introduced the HI-6140, a 3.3V, 10Mbit/sec EBR-1553 BC/MT/RT solution that is suitable for Enhanced Bit Rate 10Mbps MIL-STD-1553 or MIL-STD-1760 applications, such as Miniature Munitions Stores Interface (MMSI) or EBR-1553.
The HI-6140 uses Holt’s 20Mbit/sec RS-485 transceivers to connect directly to the EBR-1553 bus. The device produces Manchester II bi-phase encoded data for transmission on the RS-485 busses and automatically accounts for all response times necessary to comply with 10Mbps EBR-1553. The HI-6140 may be used in a multi-drop EBR-1553 bus or can function as an RT in a SAE AS5652 compliant star connection architecture.
Features: • 10 Mbps bit rate complies with MMSI / EBR-1553 and SAE AS5652 10Mbps network protocol • DO-254 certifiable • BC, MT, or RT operation • 16-bit parallel host bus interface • 64K bytes on-chip RAM with error detection/correction option
The part is available in industrial -40oC to +85oC, or extended -55°C to +125°C temperature ranges. Optional burn-in is available on the extended temperature range.
Availability: Samples are available immediately.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
