AFDX®/ARINC664P7 Cards with a Difference
AIM’s > AFDX®/ARINC664P7 test, simulation, monitoring and analysis modules use our field proven Common Core hardware design giving you the best performance, best feature set and highest functional integration on the market. The use of SoC (System on Chip) based core designs with multiple processors for real time bus protocol and application support, massive memory and IRIG-B time code encoder/decoder functions are standard. Versions are available to support the Boeing specific ARINC664P7 extensions.
AIM’s comprehensive line up of AFDX/ARINC664P7 interfaces is implemented as dedicated cards or mezzanine cards (PMC/XMC) for embedded applications. PMC/XMC cards installed on our family of generic carriers provide highly flexible and modular solutions. AIM delivers versions of our modules with extended temperature range and conformal coating. For PMC/XMC embedded applications we offer conduction cooled versions with rear I/O.
Modules with 2 duplex AFDX/ARINC664P7 ports provide traffic generation in generic transmission, physical replay and end system simulation modes with full physical/logical error injection and programmable payload generation. Receiver functions include chronological monitoring and recording and UDP Port/VL oriented modes. Multi-level triggering, advanced capture/filtering, real time bus recording, time stamping and physical bus replay to ensure your network integrity.
Each module is supplied with a Board Software Package (BSP) containing the onboard driver software, a full Application Programming Interface (API) and detailed getting started and programming guides. Powerful PBA.pro databus test and analysis software is optionally available for all our AFDX/ARINC664P7 modules.
Technology Licensee Status
AIM’s AFDX products have been granted with a technology licensee status by AIRBUS Operations. This gives our clients the full assurance that any licensed patents relating to the Avionics Full Duplex Switched Ethernet network communication system (AFDX) are authorized and fully compliant with the standard.
PBA.pro based Script Packages for E/S and Switch Testing
Optional PBA.pro Script packages are available for testing AFDX/ARINC664P7 End Systems and Switches. Complete hardware and software solutions are available for testing against the AFDX/ARINC664P7 specifications, including the corresponding Test Plan documents, fully developed by AIM.
AFDX/ARINC664P7 Training and Technology Seminars
AIM’s team of expert trainers is able to offer as a costed option AFDX/ARINC664P7 training and technology seminars. These can be conducted at our facility in Freiburg, Germany or on-site at the customers’ facility.
