iDDS (instrumentation Data Distribution Service) is an embedded common application protocol for ”plug and play” data acquisition and control instruments. UEI supports iDDS and is a member of the iDDS Support Group along with these other industry-leading companies:
Other data interfaces (TCP/IP, UDP/IP, Modbus, OPC, etc.)
iDDS runs directly on our rugged and flexible hardware, opening up new possibilities to move the sensor and control data as close to the engine as possible. Watch our application video below to see this in action.
THE RIGHT SIGNALS FOR YOUR iDDS APPLICATION
UEI knows how important it is to support all of your sensors and avionic interfaces in the system. That is why we offer an extensive list of I/O boards to make your development and testing safer, faster, easier, and more cost-effective.
An aerospace design manufacturer recently completed construction of a massive engine test bed structure designed to support a new generation of efficient and sustainable engines and propulsion systems. The data systems inside the test bed are more capable and complex than any of manufacturer's existing testbeds and have the capacity to collect and store more than 10,000 parameters of data from an intricate lattice of sensors. UEI worked in partnership with manufacturer to standardize on a common iDDS (Instrumentation Data Distribution Service) architecture across the test bed's complex data measurement infrastructure.

UEI offers over 90+ I/O boards to support all your data acquisition, test, and control application needs.
WHY USE UEI FOR iDDS?
Ability to simulate and read a wide range of values for variables. This enables customers to find failure points with a great degree of accuracy.
Harsh condition tested - Enables boards to go wherever they are needed:
5 g Vibration
100 g Shock
-40 to 85º C
High level of channel isolation to ensure accuracy up to 350 VRMS.
Extremely versatile can be used with a wide range of operating systems and programming languages.
Decrease costs by not needing to use a real plant with the embedded system.
Scalable due to wide range of chassis available allowing for an increase in boards that all can work together.
Precise synchronization between chassis using PTP IEEE 1588.
