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 first installment, Avionics: Elements, Software, and Functions covers the building blocks and enabling technologies behind modern avionics systems. It discusses data buses, displays, human factors, standards, and flight systems in detail and includes new chapters on the Time-Triggered Protocol (TTP), ARINC specification 653, communications, and vehicle health management systems.
