In the short time since Cary Spitzer's The Avionics Handbook was published, new technologies and standards have fueled advances in digital avionics technologies. Reflecting the increasingly digital nature of modern avionics, the second edition of this bestselling handbook features a new title: the Digital Avionics Handbook. But the title is not the only change to this edition. In addition to updated material and several completely new chapters, this essential reference is now presented as a set of two books focused on a specific area of avionics.What's Included in the New Edition?The first installment in the set, 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.Rounding out the set, 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.Individually, each book in this set offers focused information for specialists. Taken together, the Digital Avionics Handbook, Second Edition is the most complete and modern guide to designing, developing, and implementing high-performance avionics systems in both military and civilian aircraft.
