What is the SBus

The SBus is a family of high-speed data buses (corresponding to the physical OSI layer) optimized for high-density packet communications. They are fast and robust, even in high-load networks.

What does the SBus family consist of?

The SBus family currently consists of the original SBus, also known as SBus22, and the new SBus32. SBus22 has 22 serial lines by two directions, as well as frequency scaling and over-line power. SBus32 has 32 serial lines per direction and over-line power.

What does the SBus project do?

The SBus project creates and documents the standards, code, and schematics used in the SBus family. You may help out by donating to our project:
