SAFEbus is a registered trademark of Honeywell International, Inc.

is the only backplane or local area network standard (ARINC 659) [1] that provides fail-op/fail-safe fault tolerance with near-unity coverage for all of its components—signal lines, terminations, interface electronics, clock sources, and power supplies. This coverage includes tolerating a Byzantine fault. SAFEbus provides a time-based protocol that delivers messages with a precision on the order of 100 ns over a backplane network. The SAFEbus protocol can be implemented in an integrated circuit or FPGA with just 70,000 gates.
