I'd be very grateful to know..... Unfortunately, most EFIS displays (be they smart or driven by a signal generator) do not use the same method of communication as used by the computer industry. On the 737/757/767 EFIS, a Symbol Generator generates the analog signal which drives the dispaly. On the "smart" displays, a digital signal is sent; but the protocols in both cases are proprietary to the manufacturer and do not correspond to the PC protocols. Sorry. Dave PS: Note: In most cases the graphics are both raster scan and stroke refresh. Usually, the background is raster and the text (and symbols on the Nav display) are stroked.
