One terminal is designated as the bus controller; all others are remote terminals each with a specific terminal address.

The specification describes how an avionics system transmits information over a single twisted and shielded pair of wires the databus to all other system elements having need of that information up to as many as 20 receivers. This digital, command-response, time-division multiplexing network protocol is also used in many other military and commercial applications where fast, positive control is required.

The specification defines the units, ranges, resolutions, refresh rates, number of significant bits, pad bits, etc. Since there was no universal databus standard and needs varied, different digital transmission systems were called out in the equipment characteristics for: These protocols are very similar to MIL-STD except that their transmitted waveforms are controlled to look more like sine waves than a trapezoid.

There are no status words in the MIA protocol.


With its much higher data rates than older databus protocols ARINC is an attractive protocol for both new and retrofit aircraft systems. ARINC is an equipment characteristic for a Digital Air Data System DADS that provides essential air-data information for displays, autopilots, and other flight controls and xrinc on commercial and transport type aircraft.

Avionics Databus Tutorials

ARINC is a multipart specification that defines an Ethernet data network for aircraft installations. Data on the Display Databus consists of bit messages words that are preceded by and followed by aginc sync. There are two commonly used databuses on the Space Shuttle.

Bi-directional data flow on a given databus is not permitted.

ARINC describes the characteristics of an airborne pulse Doppler Weather Radar system intended for installation in commercial transport type aircraft. The source may then repeat the process until the entire file is transferred.

It is xrinc specification that defines a local area network for transfer of digital data between avionics system elements. Since there was no universal databus standard and needs varied, different digital transmission systems were called out in the equipment characteristics for:. Protocols for the transmission of digital data were originally defined as part of the standardization of individual equipment characteristics.

Words are 12 bits long and are nominally transmitted at 64 or words per second, though the specification also permits and words per second. Other components may provide input data or be used to control the system. 4533 defines a system and then classifies these protocols according to their message, electrical, logical, and timing related elements. What is Williamsburg Protocol?


Words have 16 bits, and messages can have up to 32 words. The serial databus is bi-directional, but the discretes are always driven by the bus controller the PGSC and received by the remote wrinc. Seat Actuation Systems Seat Motion. Special messages are reserved for broadcast data and mode codes.

Equipment Power and Control Equipment. The Multiplex Interface Adapter MIA databus is a command response protocol that uses bit words plus sync and parity. Many of these equipment characteristics use more than one protocol to communicate to other components. Messages can have up to 32 words.

Data Bus Cables

The speed of the MDM bus is 1 megabits per second. These extensions to IEEE ARINC is the industry standard that is used on virtually all arinv aircraft.

Though there are some references to ARINCthe document was never approved so no equipment was developed using this protocol. The discretes control the timing, direction, and number of words on the serial databus.
