A data word consists of 32 bits communicated over a twisted pair cable using the bipolar return-to-zero modulation. AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”.

AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. Webarchive template wayback links CS1 maint: Ethernet family of local area network technologies.

AFDX/ARINC Interface Chip – MEN

There is no standatd 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.

Multiple switches can be bridged together in a cascaded star topology.

It specifies interoperable functional elements at the following OSI reference arinx layers:. The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from one, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the aircraft. However, the number sub-VLs that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four. Also the switch, having a VL configuration table loaded, can reject any erroneous data transmission that may otherwise swamp other branches of the network.


Innovating together for the A XWB”. 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.

This is the maximum rate data can be sent, and it is guaranteed to be sent at that interval. This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the network. However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such as traffic policing and redundancy functions.

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.

Basing on standards from the IEEE Through the use of twisted pair stwndard fiber optic cables, full-duplex Ethernet uses two separate pairs or strands for transmitting and receiving the data.

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

Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet

Data are read in a round-robin sequence among the virtual links with data to transmit. 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. ARINC utilizes a unidirectional bus with a single transmitter and up to twenty receivers. The six primary aspects of an AFDX data network include full duplexredundancy, determinism, high speed performance, switched and profiled network.


Therefore, in a network with multiple switches cascaded star topologythe total number of virtual links is nearly limitless. Archived copy as title All Wikipedia articles needing clarification Wikipedia articles needing clarification from September 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.

Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding functions that should be able to process at least VLs. AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing. Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet AFDX is a data network, patented by international aircraft manufacturer Airbus[1] for safety-critical applications that utilizes dedicated bandwidth while providing deterministic quality of service QoS.

CS1 – FPGA with Integrated AFDX/ARINC-664

Retrieved from ” https: There are two speeds of transmission: Retrieved May 28, 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. Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems.

Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular virtual link. Airbus and Rockwell Collins: In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the VLs as an Stanrard style network each with one source and one or more destinations.

Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market. There can be one or more receiving end systems connected within each virtual link.
