Description / Abstract:


This Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the test requirements for determining that bus monitors meet the requirements of MIL-STD-1553B, Digital Time Division Command/Response Multiplex Data Bus.


This standard is general test plan for validation or production test of any bust monitor designed to meet the requirements of MIL-STd-1553B. These requirements shall apply to the bust monitor under test, when invoked in a specification or statement of work.

The primary intent of this test plan is to test those requirements of MIL-STD-1553 for Bus Monitors that have been implemented in hardware. Software, or firmware. However, it is recognized the some additional software may be required to meet this intent and that this software may be the operational software (or some portion thereof), special test software, or some combination of these.

Tests specified herein may be performed in any order, combined with one another, or combined with other tests of the subsystem in which the bus monitor may be embedded.

This document deals only with bus monitor functions that are explicitly described in MIL-STD_1553. This document does not specify tests that check the integrity of the date from the subsystem to the bus, not does it attempt to address the system test requirements.

For test specified to be used in production test of a bust monitor chip. Module, or function within an equipment, it is intended that all stimili and measurements be made via external connections and/or test points. No required access to any other points is intended.
