UEI has put together documents and other resources to help you understand and engineer great solutions. Below is a list of pages and/or documents for you to use as resources.
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.
