The SHipboard INtegrated Processing And Display System (SHINPADS) Serial Data Bus is a high speed digital interconnect system designed to provide a real time data bus communication facility for Naval Electronic Systems. The serial Data Bus (SDB) can be used to interconnect devices currently using Military Standard MIL-STD-1397 Input/Output Interfaces and it has been designed to suit the needs of Naval Combat Systems. The SHINPADS Serial Data Bus was specified with an eye to the future. A large growth margin was designed into the system, while minimizing costs, by properly distributing functions between software, firmware, and hardware. The Serial Data Bus protocol enables future evolution to Fiber Optic Transmission without impacting system software. The Serial Data Bus provides the potential for accomplishing many of the features attributed to Distributed Processing Systems. However, the accomplishment of Distributed Processing improvements can only occur through proper and enlightened system design.
