MCAS is implemented on the Flight Control Computers (FCCs). The FCCs communicate over an aviation data bus, ARINC format. The B737NG used ARINC 700 series standard for communication - sensor information is linked to the FCCs via the avionics data bus. The B737MAX may or may not use a later standard ARINC bus. There are two FCCs on the B737MAX. From this ...

Anti-ice systems for helicopter rotors are still not in any widespread usage. This would require a large current supply through some sort of slip ring or somehow directing bleed air to the spinning rotor blades. Leonardo Helicopters has just recently introduced the technology to their line of medium to heavy models. What you see on most helicopters is called ...
