Ok so what the heck is a RSS? The RSS is a central location in the simulation for all of the radio stuff.
The Analysis NexGen can handle any type of radio interface, but not limited to ARINC-410, ARINC-429,
MIL-STD-1553, or any thing else you can dream up ie. Sub Space Radio in Star Trek. The 5 in 1 pictured on
the right is a ARINC-410 head, they are cheap and plentiful on eBay. Radios with dials general fall into the other category of other ie. you are on your own. The ADF pictured on the right is has a syncro transmitter in it which controls the receiver in the electronics bay. Then you have ARINC-429 this is used on more modern control heads with LEDs.
The RSS is also responsible for driving meters, turning lights on or off, and changing instrument flags under control of a slave microprocessor via RSS_Control, but commanded by the simulation. In the lower right I have included a photo of a ADI showing the various flags.
The Audio portion of this system is the ASS or Audio SubSystem. Needless to say we have a Linux Box which houses multiple audio interfaces and the OS must have the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture or ALSA included in the build but more about that later.
There are several pieces of software running to put this all in motion.
Here we will only concern ourselves with two programs and four protocols: (The ones in black)
