Four decades old and counting, the ARINC 429 bus protocol is going strong. Its presence on the A310/320, A330/340, B737, B747, B757, B767, and MD-11 means that it will be popular for many years to come. Even more recent products with highly integrated avionics architectures - such as the B777, B787, and A380 - still use 429 buses to transport sensor data. The same is true for military platforms based on commercial aircraft, including the Navy's P-8 Poseidon.
