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.
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.
UEI has developed a truly sophisticated and reliable on-board monitoring system we call “Guardian.” Whether you are in the field or a laboratory environment, the ability to quickly and easily test a system, monitor sensor diagnostics, as well as to detect a fault for rapid resolution is critical.
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 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).
Using COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) hardware helps mitigate obsolescence issues. Learn more about the history of COTS hardware, its strengths and limitations, and how UEI COTS system solutions can help you save time, money, and best prepare your systems for the future.
Learn about the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) consortium and how UEI's products conform to the FACE™ Technical Standard in order to support an open avionics environment for military avionics platforms.
View UEI's compiled list of Avionics field hardware solutions and applications to learn how UEI products can help you improve your test, simulation, and control systems.
Learn all about what makes UEI's rugged hardware stand out in the DAQ market. This comprehensive overview page provides key info, application examples, product recommendations, and more tools to guide your hardware decision.
Programmable automation in DAQ systems can provide users with superior reliability and flexibility. This overview lays out various mission-critical applications and technical information for embedded controllers.
The market that current VME users are facing is centered around obsolete components and final time buys. Faced with “End of Life” (EOL) issues, designers are looking for alternative solutions to replace VME entirely.
With the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) comes new and complex data acquisition (DAQ) and control solution problems. This comprehensive overview provides information on UEI test bench, simulation of systems, and design verification/validation solutions for UAV/UAS applications.
Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) and Electric Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft are able to take flight and land without the need of a runway. These aircraft require customized DAQ and I/O solutions. Read how UEI can help with all e/VTOL and testing/verification needs.
Time Sensitive Networking is IEEE 802.1Q - a defined standard technology providing deterministic messaging on Ethernet. TSN safety-critical control networks accept inputs from sensors, perform control loop processing, initiate actions, and implement packet and link redundancy with varying levels of timing sensitivity and priority.
