baud

A unit of data transmission equal to 1 bit/sec. Technically, baud is the number of times/sec that the carrier signal shifts value—e.g., a 56k bit-per-second modem actually runs at 14.4 baud, but it moves 4 bits per baud. Named after a Emile Baudot 1845-1903, a French telegraph engineer, inventor of the Baudot code, and pioneer of telecommunication.

The amount of elements depends on what frequency the given flight or aircraft parameter will be transmitted at, on the number of flight parameters and on the system baud rate. Bus capacity can be a limiting parameter.
Furthermore, it is possible to design separate RS232 interfaces according to some specific required baud rates. However, before selecting a particular baud rate, the TIM must be tested under practical conditions without solely depending on mathematical calculations.
Since the over-the-air baud rate is 188K baud, this looks seamless to the user.
Observation has been noted when testing both systems according to baud rates variation these variations were between 75 to 9600 bps.
While 0600 baud is now a typical baud rate in dialup Internet access, this limit can be stretched if the user has certain modern capabilities or software.
The IQTX-40 has newly enabled automatic bias control (ABC) that Coherent Solutions stated would allow engineers to change modulation formats and baud rates with confidence the modulator would maintain its bias stability.
The RS-232 serial ports provide the option to connect to a serial terminal or serial devices such as touchscreens and barcode scanners at Baud Rates of up to 115200 bps," says Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International.
