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 .

AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”. 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. Each virtual link is allocated dedicated bandwidth [sum of all VL bandwidth allocation gap BAG rates ;art MTU] with the total amount of bandwidth defined by the system integrator. Arind Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Webarchive template wayback links CS1 maint: Ethernet family of local area network technologies.

Innovating together for the A XWB”. Archived copy as title All Wikipedia articles needing clarification Wikipedia articles needing clarification from September However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the srinc. AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing.

This ADN operates without the use of a bus controller thereby increasing the reliability of the network architecture. Data are read in a round-robin sequence among the virtual links with data to transmit.

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.


However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such as traffic policing and redundancy functions. AFDX was designed as the next-generation aircraft data network. Real-time solution on the A” PDF. By patr 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.

Retrieved from ” https: This is the maximum rate data can be sent, and it is guaranteed to be sent at that interval. Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market. Airbus and Rockwell Collins: This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the aircraft. In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the Adinc as an ARINC style network each with one source and one or more destinations.

AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. Further a redundant pair of networks is used to improve the system 6664 although aribc virtual link may be configured to use one or the other network only.

AFDX was developed by Airbus Industries for the A, [3] initially to address real-time issues for flight-by-wire system development.

Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet – Wikipedia

A data word consists of 32 bits communicated over a twisted pair cable using the bipolar return-to-zero modulation. 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.

Bi-directional communications must therefore require the specification of a complementary VL. Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding functions that should be able to process at least VLs.


The architecture adopted by AgustaWestland is centered around the AFDX data network developed for the latest commercial airliners. Archived from the original PDF on A similar implementation [ clarify ] of deterministic Ethernet is used on the Boeing Dreamliner.

However, the number sub-VLs that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four.

Additionally, there can be sub-virtual links sub-VLs that are designed to carry less critical data. Therefore, in a network with multiple switches cascaded star topologythe total number of virtual links is nearly limitless. Views Read Edit View history.

This page was last edited 66 10 Novemberat Multiple switches can be bridged together in a cascaded star topology. The drawback is that it requires custom hardware which can add significant cost to the aircraft.

Speedgoat – ARINC Part 7 / AFDX protocol support with Simulink

There can be one or more receiving end systems connected within each virtual link. Also sub-virtual links do not provide guaranteed arinx or latency due to the buffering, but AFDX specifies that latency is measured from the traffic regulator function anyway. Many commercial aircraft use the ARINC standard developed in for safety-critical applications.
