Words have 16 bits, and messages can have up to 32 words. The Multiplex Interface Adapter MIA databus is a arihc response protocol that uses bit words plus sync and parity. The reason is atinc there are fewer high frequency components in a rounded waveform, and therefore it reduces the possibility of electromagnetic interference to sensitive aircraft systems. Many of these equipment characteristics use more than one protocol to communicate to other components.

The standard defines the handshaking, data formats and timing requirements of the protocol as well as the electrical characteristics of the bus and the terminals’ interface electronics.

Interiors Environmental Control Systems. Words are 12 bits long and are nominally transmitted at 64 or words per second, though the specification also permits and words per second. ARINC is a multipart specification that defines an Ethernet data network for aircraft installations.

Messages can have up to 32 words.

Avionics Databus Tutorials

Bi-directional data flow on a given databus is not permitted. Words on the MIA databus are 24 bits long and have 5. The speed of the MDM bus is 1 megabits per second. The discretes control the timing, direction, and number of words on the serial databus.

Since there was no wrinc databus standard and needs varied, different digital transmission systems were called out in the equipment characteristics for:. The serial databus is bi-directional, but the discretes are always driven by the bus controller the PGSC and received by the remote terminal.

Williamsburg is a bit-oriented protocol used to transfer files between systems over ARINC full duplex links. ARINC is an equipment characteristic for a Digital Air Data System DADS that provides essential air-data information for displays, autopilots, and other ainc controls and instrumentation on commercial and transport type aircraft.

Words are 16 bits long and are transmitted at one megabit per second. There are two speeds approximately ARINC is equivalent to the slow speed 64 words per second version of There are no status words in the MIA protocol.

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. Since there was no universal databus standard and needs varied, different digital transmission systems were called out in the equipment characteristics for: ARINC catalogs and compares many of the older avionics databus standards.

Primarily used on airlines, the FDR provides capability to meet the FAA mandatory flight data recording requirements plus other data acquisition needs. Data on the Display Databus consists of bit messages words that are preceded by and followed by a sync. All transmissions are initiated by the bus controller transmitting a command word. ARINC is the industry standard that is used on virtually all aarinc aircraft. The specification describes how an avionics system transmits information over a single twisted and shielded pair aginc wires the databus to all other system elements having need of that information up to as many as 20 receivers.


Each LRU has a transmit connection and a receive connection, and implements a control protocol to manage the data transfer. A status word that includes its terminal address is transmitted by a remote terminal before transmitting data words or to confirm reception of data words. Parameters are differentiated by their position time slot address in the data frame. ARINC defines a system and then classifies these protocols according to their message, electrical, logical, and timing atinc elements.

What is Williamsburg Protocol? Special messages are reserved for broadcast data and mode codes. These protocols are very similar to MIL-STD except that their transmitted waveforms are controlled to look more like sine waves than a trapezoid. Systems Certification Certification Design Kitting.

Learn more about the most common avionics databus protocols with this brief tutorial from Astronics Ballard Technology. There are two commonly used databuses on the Space Shuttle.

Both protocols have a terminal address in the command word, but other bits are used differently.
