It specifies interoperable functional elements at srandard following OSI reference model layers:. This is the maximum rate data can be sent, and it is guaranteed to be sent at that interval. Innovating together for the A XWB”.

Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market. Ethernet family of local area network technologies.

Stabdard 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. A similar implementation [ clarify ] of deterministic Ethernet is used on the Boeing Dreamliner.

The architecture adopted by AgustaWestland is centered around the AFDX data network developed for the latest commercial airliners. Airbus and Rockwell Collins: 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. AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing.

This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the network. Archived from the original PDF on By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. 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.


Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet

The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from one, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems. AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”.

Basing on standards from standaard IEEE In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the VLs as an ARINC style network each with one source and one or more destinations. Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems. Data are read in a round-robin sequence among the virtual links with data to transmit. ARINC utilizes a unidirectional bus with a single transmitter and up to twenty receivers.

Retrieved May 28, AFDX was developed by Airbus Industries for the A, [3] initially to address real-time issues for flight-by-wire system development. Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular virtual link. The virtual link ID is a bit unsigned integer value that follows a constant bit field. Also the switch, having a VL configuration table loaded, can reject any erroneous data standrd that may otherwise swamp other branches of the network.

CS1 – FPGA with Integrated AFDX/ARINC-664

Retrieved from ” https: There can be one or more receiving end systems connected within each virtual link. 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.

Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding functions that should be able to process at least VLs. Many commercial aircraft use the ARINC standard developed in for safety-critical applications.


There are two speeds of transmission: Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet AFDX is arknc data network, patented by international aircraft manufacturer Airbus[1] for safety-critical applications that utilizes dedicated bandwidth while providing deterministic quality of service QoS.

Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet – Wikipedia

This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the aircraft. Multiple switches can be bridged together in a cascaded star topology. 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. Views Read Edit View history. Also sub-virtual links do not provide guaranteed sgandard or latency due to the buffering, but AFDX specifies that latency is measured from the traffic regulator function anyway.

AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. This ADN operates without the use of a bus controller thereby increasing the reliability of the network architecture.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. However, the number sub-VLs that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four. A data word consists of 32 bits communicated over a twisted pair cable using the bipolar return-to-zero modulation.

However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such 646 traffic policing and redundancy functions. In addition, AFDX can provide quality of service and standzrd link redundancy.
