The proven MIL-STD-1553 databus provides a
highly reliable 1 Mbps data channel between the various components
of many legacy avionics systems. Although MIL-STD-1553 has been in
use for over 20 years and its data rate is relatively low by
today’s standards, engineers continue to design MIL-STD-1553-based
systems for new operational military and commercial
applications.
