The PMC HyperBoard is a multi-standard PCI Mezzanine Card that contains eight channels of MIL-STD-1553 communication. The board is compatible with MIL-STD-1553B and MIL-STD-1760. Each channel can be configured independently to work with H009 and WB-194 in conjunction with MIL-STD-1553. Other protocols, like French DigiBus, are also available upon request.

The PMC HyperBoard is based on proven MIL-STD-1553, H009 and WB-194 (WMUX) IP cores and transceivers. Prior to shipment, the board can be programmed to support various configurations and protocols using the exact same hardware. The PMC board includes eight generic I/O pins that can be used as RS-422, RS-485, ARINC-429 (2 transmit and 2 receive channels) or eight avionics I/O ports. The board also includes eight digital I/O channels and IRIG-B time-tag input and output channels.

The PMC HyperBoard can be used for onboard avionics systems and for lab testing equipment. The multi-standard interface board is software-compatible with DDC Enhanced Mini-ACE components and architecture, enabling fast and easy integration with existing or new systems. Tester versions are available with capabilities such as RT Simulation, Multi-RT, Error Injection and more.

Software drivers for Windows and Linux, along with high-level API, are available to ease application development. This software includes an advanced GUI (Graphical User Interface) for controlling the board, generating MIL-STD-1553 traffic, monitoring and emulating a real bus environment.

All MIL-STD-1553 boards are provided with drivers for Microsoft Windows, Linux and a high level API, which is provided as source code.  Luthier software is a Windows application, which enables testing and verifying basic operation of the board and MIL-STD-1553 connections. It enables the user to configure the channels as BC, RT or Monitor, define MIL-STD-1553 messages and frames, monitor the traffic on the bus and validate the correct operation of the board. This easy-to-operate program also provides information about energy reflections on the MIL-STD-1553 bus, which are caused by bad connections or lack of terminations.
