Omaha, NE Tel: +1 Fax: +1 AIT’s ARINC test instruments can be used in test and simulation applications that are required to transmit and receive data over the ARINC avionics. Introduction. “Avionic Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet” (AFDX), designated. ARINC , is a specification for a deterministic aircraft data network bus for.

In addition, AFDX can provide quality of service and dual link redundancy. Airbus and Rockwell Collins: Views Read Edit View history.

AFDX / ARINC Bus Topology

AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”. However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the network. In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the VLs as an ARINC style network each with one source and one or more destinations. Real-time solution on the A” PDF. Each VL is frozen in specification to ensure that the network has a designed maximum traffic, hence determinism.

Bi-directional communications must therefore require the specification of a complementary VL. Additionally, there can be sub-virtual links sub-VLs that are designed to carry less critical data. ARINC utilizes a unidirectional bus with a single transmitter and up to twenty receivers.


Also the switch, having a VL configuration table loaded, can reject any erroneous data transmission that may otherwise swamp other branches of the network. There is no specified limit to the number of virtual links that can be handled by each end system, although this will be determined by the BAG rates and maximum frame size specified for each VL versus the Ethernet data rate.


Retrieved from ” https: Basing on standards from the IEEE The six primary aspects of an AFDX data network include full duplexredundancy, determinism, high speed performance, switched and profiled network. AFDX was designed as the next-generation aircraft data network. The network is designed in such a way that all critical traffic is prioritized using QoS policies so delivery, latency, and jitter are all guaranteed to be within set parameters. Retrieved May 28, By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

The architecture adopted by AgustaWestland is centered around the AFDX data network developed for the latest commercial airliners. Through the use of twisted pair or fiber optic cables, full-duplex Ethernet uses two separate pairs or strands for transmitting and receiving the data. Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding functions that should be able to process at least VLs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from one, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems.

Also sub-virtual links do not provide guaranteed bandwidth or latency due to the buffering, but AFDX specifies that latency is measured from the traffic regulator function anyway. A similar implementation [ clarify ] of deterministic Ethernet is used on the Boeing Dreamliner. Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market. Further a redundant pair of networks is used to improve the system integrity although a virtual link may be configured to use one or the other network only.

Archived from the original PDF on This ADN operates without the use of a bus controller thereby increasing the ainc of the network architecture. AFDX was developed by Airbus Industries for the A, [3] initially to address real-time issues for flight-by-wire system development. The switch must also be non-blocking at the data rates that are specified by the system integrator, and in practice this may mean that the switch aeinc have a switching capacity that is the sum of all of its physical ports.


This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the aircraft. There can be one or more receiving end systems connected within each virtual link. AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. A data word consists of 32 bits communicated over a twisted pair cable using the bipolar return-to-zero modulation.

Innovating together for the A XWB”. Ethernet family of local area network technologies.

Archived copy as title All Wikipedia articles needing clarification Wikipedia articles needing clarification from September Each virtual link is allocated dedicated bandwidth [sum of all VL bandwidth allocation gap BAG rates x MTU] with the total amount of bandwidth defined by the system integrator. Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular virtual link. However, the number sub-VLs that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four.

Aeinc, in a network with multiple switches cascaded star topologythe arjnc number of virtual links is nearly limitless. Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems. AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing. The virtual link ID is aricn bit unsigned integer value that follows a constant bit field.
