Is there any support for MIL-STD 1553 bus for i.MX6 family

Hello,

       I would like to know if there is any support for MIL_STD 1553 bus for imx6. MIL-STD 1553 is a bus used in the military domain and from what I've read there could be MIL-STD 1553 modules plugged on a PCI card or PCMCIA cards or it could be a native interface like PMC, PXI or VXI.

       In case support for MIL_STD 1553 PCI or PCMCIA card is needed, what would I need besides PCI or PCMCIA driver support ? Is there a MIL-STD 1553 driver available ? I didn't find anything.

       Has anyone came across this situation until now  or could point me where to look for documentation?

Thank you,

         Mihaita Ivascu

Hi Mihaita

i.MX6 do not support MIL-STD 1553 natively in hardware, however

as you correctly noted, one can use mPCIe cards  integrating 1553 interfaces.

Usually MIL-STD 1553 drivers (or its sources) are provided by card vendors,

they are not available in standard BSP distribution.

Hello Igor,

    Thanks for the information. In case native MIL-STD 1553 card (PXI, PMC or VXI interfaces) is used I suppose a completely new driver for that specific chip needs to be written. Is that correct ?

Thank you,

Hello Biyong,

    I looked there before posting the question and saw there was no reference to MIL-STD 1553 bus. I wanted to make sure that maybe I'm missing something.

Thank you,
