Test Instrumentation

TI_Tabs_Icon.pngAIT's ARINC 664 test instruments can be used in test and simulation applications that are required to transmit and receive data over the ARINC 664 avionics databus. AIT's instruments use small form-factor pluggable transceivers (SFP) and support copper or fiber optic physical network interfaces.

Using an FPGA based architecture, with multiple embedded processors, the ARINC 664 instruments provide onboard support for upper layer protocol processing (A653, UDP, IP) and utilize DMA to provide optimal data throughput. All ARINC 664 protocol operations, including VL traffic shaping, redundancy management, and IP fragmentation and reassembly, are handled onboard.

Software Tools

ST_Tabs_Icon.pngA664 Flight Simulyzer™ and SDK


AIT's Flight Simulyzer application provides users with an intuitive and easy‐to‐use ARINC 664 network data capture, analyzer, and replay tool which integrates with industry standard Ethernet tools and interfaces.

Delivered with every module, our ARINC 664/AFDX® End System Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a complete suite of ARINC 664 software API's and ARINC 664 and Ethernet ES configuration tools to support intuitive and efficient development and integration of ARINC 664 simulation and test applications.


LabVIEW Instrument DriverAIT's ARINC 664/AFDX® LabVIEW Instrument Driver is an easy-to-use,  "Compatible with LabVIEW" Instrument Driver which provides high level Virtual Instruments (VIs) that support quick prototyping and deployment of ARINC 664 applications.

The AIT ARINC 664 Instrument Driver has been certified by National Instruments to be "Compatible with LabVIEW". This means that users are ensured of the highest quality, usability, and integration with National Instrument's LabVIEW.

The ARINC 664 Instrument Driver is built upon the AIT common ARINC 664 Configuration Data core format. User applications developed using the ARINC 664 Instrument Driver can easily utilize databus configurations created using AIT's Flight Simulyzer software or the AIT C++ API.  It's simple, define your avionics system's ARINC 664 interface configuration once, then use it in your LabVIEW Instrumentation applications!
