SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed AC listed 
in this notice by submitting such written data, views, or arguments as 
they desire to the above specified address. Comments received on the 
proposed AC may be examined, before and after the comment closing date,

Service, before issuing the final Advisory Circular.

Background

    Aircraft, aircraft engine, and avionics manufacturers may choose 
from several databus configurations for use on aircraft. The function 
of a databus is to transfer information between avionics modules, 
components, or line replaceable units (LRU) installed in an aircraft. 
As such, these databuses are becoming more complex as aircraft, 
aircraft engine, and avionics manufacturers integrate more avionics 
components into the aircraft and aircraft engine data sources, 
resulting in large data transfers between data buses. System design 
engineers have considerable flexibility when designing a databus 
because of the many physical and logical configurations for airborne 
systems architecture, data units or packets, protocols, message 
traffic, and so on, thereby providing manufacturers, vendors, and 
integrators more latitude when configuring databuses. This proposed AC 
contains the criteria applicants must address when developing, 
selecting, or integrating databus technology they will use to show 
compliance with the appropriate certification requirements for their 
aircraft or aircraft engine.
