Development and Applications of MIL-STD-1553 801142
MIL-STD-1553, Aircraft Internal Time Division Command/Response Multiplex Data Bus, is a military standard which has become one of the basic standardization tools being used by the DOD for avionic interfaces. The standard describes the method of communication and the electrical interface requirements for devices using this standard. The 1 Mbps serial communication bus is the prime integration scheme for electronic devices in military avionics today. This paper addresses the application of the standard to military avionic integrations, describes the scope of the standard, the technical issues resolved in selecting the particular approach, and describes several military avionic examples using the standard.
