DC-BUS SAVES WEIGHT AND SPACE IN AEROSPACE PLATFORMS
Airplanes are fully loaded with heavy and long wires. Eliminating part of these wires increases the aircraft efficiency, fuel consumption and reliability.
Significant amount of wires in an aircraft are used for passengers comfort and safety. Using DC-BUS for seat control eliminates multiple wires.
DC-BUS sub network implemented in passenger seats, control all the seat functions using single DC power line.
Redundant Smoke detectors network for airplanes
One airplane application developed during the Scarlett project is a redundant Smoke detection network over the DC power line.
Multiple smoke detectors are communicating with a Master unit with two CAN networks (for redundancy).
Yamar provided the same communication over the DC power line replacing bulky wires and connectors.
Cutting the power line at one point does not stop the communication since the data will continue to flow via the complementing power line branch.
YAMAR ELECTRONICS Ltd.
A fabless semiconductor company since 1994. We develop and sell our unique devices for DC power line communication targeting wire saving. Customers in more than 51 countries use the devices in a wide range of applications; Automotive, Aerospace, Lighting, Battery monitoring (BMS) and more. The devices meet existing protocols such as UART, LIN, CAN, SPI, DMX512, and I2C keeping it simple to operate. Yamar engineers lead the LIN over DC powerline (DC-LIN) ISO 17987-8 standardization workgroup.
The innovation team continues to develop new technologies and products.
