AFDX defines the electrical and protocol specifications (IEEE and ARINC , Part 7) for the exchange of data between Avionics Subsystems. ARINC is based on Ethernet technology and components. ARINC is a specific implementation of ARINC Specification Part. 7. 3 and ARINC , Part 7) for the exchange of data be- tween Avionics Subsystems One thousand times faster than its predecessor, ARINC , it builds .

In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the VLs as an ARINC style network each with one source and one or more destinations. This is the maximum rate data can be sent, and it is guaranteed to be sent at that interval. However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such as traffic policing and redundancy functions.

Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular virtual link. AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. Airbus and Rockwell Collins: Multiple switches can be bridged together in a cascaded star topology.

This ADN operates without the use of a bus controller thereby increasing the reliability of the network psrt.

The six primary aspects of an AFDX data network include full duplexredundancy, determinism, high speed performance, switched and profiled network. Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding functions that should be able to process at least VLs.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

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. ARINC utilizes a unidirectional bus with a single transmitter and up to twenty receivers.

Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems.

Speedgoat – ARINC Part 7 / AFDX protocol support with Simulink

Real-time solution on the A” PDF. By adding key elements from ATM to those already found in Ethernet, and constraining the specification of various options, a highly reliable full-duplex deterministic network is created providing guaranteed bandwidth and quality of service QoS.

However, the number ;art that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four. This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the arjnc.

The network is designed in such a way that all critical traffic is prioritized using QoS policies so delivery, latency, and jitter are pwrt guaranteed to be within set parameters. ARINC operates in such a way that its single transmitter communicates in a point-to-point connection, thus requiring a significant amount of wiring which amounts to added weight.

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. Bi-directional communications must therefore require the specification of a complementary VL.


Ethernet family of local area network technologies.

A similar implementation [ clarify ] of deterministic Ethernet is used on the Boeing Dreamliner. Innovating together for the A XWB”.

Each VL is frozen in specification to ensure that the network has a designed maximum traffic, hence determinism.

The virtual link ID is a bit unsigned integer value that follows a constant bit field.

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 shall have a switching capacity that is the sum of all of its physical ports. The drawback is that it requires custom hardware which can add significant cost to the aircraft. The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from arjnc, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems.
