There’s a cool new serial data interface coming on the scene.
It’s called BiSS (Bi-Directional Synchronous Serial), and is an open-source, free-to-license digital interface for sensors and actuators. BiSS is hardware compatible to the industrial standard SSI (Serial Synchronous Interface) but offers additional features and options. Here are a few highlights:
- Serial Synchronous Data Communication
- 2 unidirectional lines Clock and Data
o Cyclic at high-speed (up to 10 MHz with RS422 and 100 MHz with LVDS)
o Line delay compensation for high-speed data transfer
o Request processing times for data generation at slaves
o Safety capable: CRC, Errors, Warnings
o Bus capability for multiple slaves and devices in a chain
o BiSS C (unidirectional) protocol: Unidirectional use of BiSS C
o BiSS C protocol: Continuous mode
o Operate actuators via two additional lines
