MIL-STD-1553 Tutorial

Mil Std 1553 Word Formats

MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard that defines mechanical, electrical, and operating characteristics of a serial data communication bus for the U.S. Department of Defense. This tutorial will be your guide to a comprehensive overview of this standard.

Learn more.

ARINC-429 Tutorial

ARINC-429 defines the standard requirements and protocols for the transportation of digital data between avionic systems in commercial aircraft. These standards are followed by equipment manufacturers, enabling the interchangeability of avionics equipment.

Synchro/Resolver Tutorial

UEI has compiled a guide to help you learn all there is to know about Synchros (a transducer that uses a transformer whose primary-to-secondary coupling may be altered by changing the relative orientation of the two winding) and Resolvers (a type of rotary electrical transformer used for measuring degrees of rotation).

Learn more.

LVDT/RVDT Tutorial

Learn all about LVDTs (Linear Variable Differential Transformer that measures absolute linear displacement) and RVDTs (is a Rotary Variable Differential Transformer. It measures absolute rotary angle).
