AIT provides ARINC 664 and Ethernet Test and Simulation solutions supporting both the conventional 10/100 Mbit/s ARINC 664 Part 7 Ethernet interfaces as well as the next generation 1 Gbit/s Ethernet interface. With modules for PCI, PCI Express, Compact PCI, PXI, PMC, and XMC, AIT's ARINC 664 products support the widest range of existing and emerging ARINC 664 and Ethernet test and Simulation application requirements.
The ARINC 664 test instruments can be used in test and simulation applications that are required to transmit and receive data over the ARINC 664 avionics databus. The instruments use two soft-form pluggables (SFP) and support copper or fiber optic physical network interfaces.
Using an FPGA based architecture, with multiple embedded processors, the ARINC 664 instruments provide on-board support for upper layer protocol processing (A653, UDP, IP) and utilize DMA to provide optimal data throughput. All ARINC 664 protocol operations, inlcuding VL traffic shaping, redundancy management, and IP fragmentation and reassembly, are handled on-board.
All of the ARINC 664 instruments are delivered with full software support, inlcuding device drivers and high level API's for Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and LabVIEW Real-Time (others provided on request). Additionally, complex End System configurations are made simple iwth AIT's intuitive and easy to use ARINC 664 ES XML based configuration tools.
