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.

The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from one, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems. In addition, AFDX can provide quality of service and dual link redundancy.

Basing on standards from the Switdh Archived from the original PDF on In case you wish to receive additional information, send an e-mail to products tttech. AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”. By clicking “Download” or “Download without registration” you agree to our Privacy Policy. Each virtual link is allocated dedicated bandwidth [sum of all VL bandwidth allocation gap BAG rates x MTU] afdz the total amount of bandwidth defined by the system integrator.

Each switch has filtering, policing, and forwarding switcch that should be able to process at least VLs. Each VL is frozen in specification to ensure that the network has a designed maximum traffic, hence determinism. Many commercial aircraft use the ARINC standard developed in for safety-critical applications. Also the switch, having a VL configuration table loaded, can reject any erroneous data transmission that may otherwise swamp other branches of the network.

AFDX® / ARINC 664 Part 7 Switch for Flight Test

Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular sswitch link. The service is based on standard IEEE It specifies interoperable functional elements at the following OSI reference model layers:.

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. However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such as affdx policing and redundancy functions. Views Read Edit View history.

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

This high-performance port switch is certifiable to civil aerospace standards and supports bandwidth-regulated traffic filtering and policing. A similar implementation [ clarify ] of deterministic Ethernet is used on the Boeing Dreamliner. ARINC utilizes a unidirectional bus with a single transmitter and up to twenty receivers.

However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the network. Webarchive template wayback links CS1 maint: AFDX was developed by Airbus Industries for the A, [3] initially to address real-time issues for flight-by-wire system development.

Innovating together for the A XWB”. Additionally, there can be sub-virtual links sub-VLs that are designed to carry less critical data.

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. The architecture adopted by AgustaWestland is centered around the AFDX data network developed for the latest commercial airliners. Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems.

Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet

Further a redundant pair of networks is used to improve the system switcb although a virtual link may be configured to use one or the other network only.

There are two speeds of transmission: AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing. Retrieved May 28, In one abstraction, it is possible to visualise the VLs as an ARINC style network each with one source and one or more destinations. The drawback is that it requires custom hardware which can add significant cost to the aircraft.

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. There can be one or more receiving end systems connected within each virtual link.

Office for Swifch in the Internal Market. Ethernet family of local area network technologies. AFDX Switch Lab This product provides the full range of technical functionalities of our certifiable production switches making it the optimal solution for various applications. 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.

The virtual link ID is a bit unsigned integer value that follows a constant bit field. Therefore, in a network with multiple switches cascaded star topologythe total number of virtual links is nearly limitless.
