Abstract

This paper addresses the real-time optimization problem to find the most efficient and reliable message chain structure in data communications based on half-duplex command–response protocols such as MIL-STD-1553B communication systems. This paper proposes a real-time Monte Carlo optimization method implemented on field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) which can not only be conducted very quickly but also avoid the conflicts with other tasks on a central processing unit (CPU). Evaluation results showed that the proposed method can consistently find the optimal message chain structure within a quite small and deterministic time, which was much faster than the conventional Monte Carlo optimization method on a CPU.
