Dual Node Telemetry Encoder: Telemetry Solutions

Overview

The Dual Node Telemetry Encoder is a microcontroller and FPGA based telemetry system that provides end- user with the luxury of configuring two 1553B channels as per user requirements. Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) Telemetry is a way of acquiring data in one location, converting the data samples to digital words, encoding the data in a serial digital format, and transmitting it on a carrier to another location for decoding and analysis.

PCM systems are less susceptible to noise than analog systems, and the digital data is easier to transmit, record, and analyze.

Mistral has developed various rugged telemetry modules for flight/mission critical applications, along with various decoder software, for ground station data extractions.
