As shown in Figure 8, the AFDX terminal module provides the communication access port from RDC to AFDX switch.
Protokraft' s new Magnum - 801 Series size 8 Quadrax Cavity Insert optical transmitters and receivers are available in a wide range of bit rates and protocols, including Fast Ethernet, 1x/2x/4x Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, ARINC 818 (ASVB), ARINC 664 (AFDX) and Serial FPDP(sFPDP).
Generally speaking, the reliability of AFDX network is so high that the value of L(m, n) will be close to 1, when the data is transferred from module m to n.
Our recently released DNx-AFDX-664 board can interface to the new AFDX avionics bus, used by the new larger jets from AirBus and Boeing and expected to expand into new generations of smaller aircraft."
As Troshynski commented, it "was developed to support the growing demand for Ethernet and specifically ARINC 664 (AFDX) test instrumentation being driven by multiple new aircraft platforms, such as the Airbus A380, Boeing 787, and Bombardier C-Series, which are migrating to Ethernet-based core avionics networks." With PXIe-based timing and triggering capabilities similar to the PXIe-FC4, the PXIe-664 also can be used for synchronized communications and the capture of correlated data from ARINC 429 and MIL-STD-1553 avionics buses.
Airbus document ABD0100.1.2 (5) for Avionic Full Duplex (AFDX) interfaces, a further development of the Ethernet protocol, and the Boeing D6-16050-5 revision B (6) introduce voltage tests applicable to the technology being implemented in the new generation of passenger aircraft (Table 1).
