Chapter 2 – ARINC 429

ARINC 429, formally known as the Mark 33 Digital Information Transfer System (DITS), is a specification for the transfer of digital information between avionics system elements.

Network Topology
In its simplest form, an ARINC 429 network consists of a single transmitter (source) connected to a single receiver (sink). Up to 20 receivers can be connected to a single transmitter. ARINC 429 systems can include many of these connections to share data between the elements of the avionics system.

Bit Rates
ARINC 429 typically uses either “low speed” (12 to 14.5 kbps +/- 1%) or “high speed” (100 kbps +/- 1%) bit rates.
