iDDS 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 YOU 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.
WIDE ARRAY OF I/O & AVIONICS BOARDS
Current – Sink/Source
EXTENSIVE SOFTWARE SUPPORT
Many other Languages and OSs supported
UEI offers over 85+ I/O boards to support all your data acquisition, test and control application needs.
WHY USE UEI FOR iDDS?
Ability to simulate and read 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:
-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.

In this webinar, MDS Aero Support's Don Pereira provides an in-depth look at the new iDDS standard. Takeaways for this presentation include: understanding why iDDS was developed; the benefits for vendors, DAS suppliers and end users; and applying telecom industry principles for managing an instro network.
The Pacer Comet 4 represents a major step forward in Test Cell Design and is expected to set the standard for efficient, high performance jet engine testing for many years to come. See UEI's role in this test cell design.
UEI hardware and VISTAS are a perfect match for any virtual/hybrid/real test benches. For example, here is a demonstration of the simulation capabilities from this year's European Test & Telemetry Conference #ETTC2018 in Nuremberg, Germany.
ARINC 429 is the avionics data bus standard used on most high-end commercial aircraft. The standard defines both the physical and electrical interfaces of a two-wire data bus as well as the data protocol to support an aircraft's avionics network.
While UEI’s MIL-STD-1553 allows users to simulate a complete and fully functioning 1553 system, it also provides you the ability to inject errors to fully test your system’s real world error handling capabilities.
UEI's MIL-STD-1553 hardware arrives equipped with a "scheduler” which synchronizes the flow of data in the system. In this brief tutorial we demonstrate the major concepts behind the UEI 1553 major and minor frame scheduler.
The UEINet Avionics Gateway is an ultra compact (2.7" x 4" x 4.1") and rugged I/O system. Expandable to include over 60 different I/O configurations, including sensors, analog and digital I/O. Learn more!
