Book Description

Renamed to reflect the increased role of digital electronics in modern flight control systems, Cary Spitzer's industry-standard Digital Avionics Handbook, Second Edition is available in two comprehensive volumes designed to provide focused coverage for specialists working in different areas of avionics development. The second installment, Avionics: Development and Implementation explores the practical side of avionics. The book examines such topics as modeling and simulation, electronic hardware reliability, certification, fault tolerance, and several examples of real-world applications. New chapters discuss RTCA DO-297/EUROCAE ED-124 integrated modular avionics development and the Genesis platform.
