    I am designing a testbench on some HI-1568 transceiver (MIL-STD-1553 specifications), and I'm not quite used with this type of communication.

    The point is to connect only 2 transceivers, via the two bus available, on the same PCB board. I would send a biphase signal generated by a function generator on the first one and then check the received signal of the second one on a scope.

    The question concerns the connection between the two devices.
    Do you think I should 'simulate' a 1553 bus on PCB with the correct resistors and transformers ? Or does a direct connections would just work fine given that there will only be two devices pretty close on the same board.
