IEEE-1394b Interface Requirements for Military and Aerospace Vehicle Applications AS5643

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes the requirements for the use of IEEE-1394b as a data bus network in military and aerospace vehicles. It defines the concept of operations and information flow on the network. As discussed in 1.4, this specification contains extensions/restrictions to "off-the-shelf " IEEE-1394 standards, and assumes that the reader already has a working knowledge of IEEE-1394. This document is referred to as the "base " specification, containing the generic requirements that specify data bus characteristics, data formats and node operation. It is important to note that this specification is not stand-alone - several requirements provide only example implementations and delegate the actual implementation to be specified by the network architect/integrator for a particular vehicle application. This information is typically contained in a "network profile " slash sheet that is subservient to this base specification. In a similar manner, the electrical characteristics of the bus media, as well as connector information is contained in a "physical layer " slash sheet, that also may be unique to a particular vehicle application. In summary, full understanding of this specification requires knowledge of IEEE-1394b standards and access to the physical layer slash sheets and the slash sheets and handbook for the target application.
