DDC Launches the First Radiation Tolerant Complete MIL-STD-1553 Solutions…
Total-Space ACE & Total-Space RT

Bohemia, New York (April 2016) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces two new +3.3V completely integrated radiation tolerant MIL-STD-1553 terminals that include transceivers, transformers, protocol and memory. Total-Space ACE offers full BC, RT, MT, and RT/MT functionality to interface directly to a host processor, while the Total-Space RT is an RT only terminal ideal for interfacing with systems without a host processor, such as FPGA and simple logic. Both versions feature an extended -55°C to +125°C temperature range, and 300 Krads TID (Total Ionizing Dose) and >85 MeV SEE (Single Event Effects) radiation hardening, required for the extreme environmental conditions encountered in mission critical space applications.


  • Compact integrated design saves space... replaces two transceivers, two transformers, protocol, and memory (not in RT version)
  • Efficient +3.3V operation minimizes power consumption, compared to multi-component solutions
  • Single package simplifies layout & improves reliability (MTBF)
  • Transformers and transceivers, trimmed and tested as a set, provide superior margin for MIL-STD-1553 compliance
  • Two configurations available, in gull wing and flat package options:
    • BC, RT, MT, RT/MT (Total-Space ACE)
    • RT only (Total-Space RT)
  • DLA MIL-PRF-38534 Class H or K Qualified

“To support the expanding demand for greater power efficiency and space utilization in environments exposed to radiation, DDC introduces the first fully integrated, radiation tolerant MIL-STD-1553 solutions. These compact single package designs offer highly efficient 3.3V operation, minimizing layout and power requirements” stated Mike Hegarty, DDC’s Data Bus Product Line Manager.
