Loved your AICU stuff. Here's an extract from 'The Concorde Air Intake Control System':
The Control Highway
This highway is a uni-directional databus that carries binary data transmitted by the AISU to it's pair of AICU's. The Control Highway effectively comprises of a single wire, that has transmitted along it multiplexed digital data, clock and address. (In reality this is a twisted wire pair). The AICS Control Highway data word comprises of 64 bits, transmitted at a PRF of (at least by modern standards) an extremely pedestrian 35 Kbits/second.
Sounded mouthwatering in the 1970's though, 35 Kbits/sec' is almost NINE KB/sec'!!!!.
