AIT FIBRE CHANNEL Simulyzer™ PRODUCTS

AIT's Fibre Channel Simulyzer™ products are multi-function, high performance, intelligent Fibre Channel interface and testing boards. The products feature both data generation/simulation and monitor/analyzer functions.  Applications include a simple End-System to demanding testing and verification of End Systems and/or switches. Fibre Channel is deployed on a growing number of avionics and military platforms. Our products may be used with the most popular avionics Upper Layer protocols including FC-AE-ASM, FC-AE-1553, FC-AE-RDMA and FC-AE-AV.  All AIT Fibre Channel modules utilize multiple processors with large onboard RAM. An onboard processor runs the driver software, minimizing host CPU interaction, enabling autonomous operation with minimal interaction during time-critical applications.

AIT’s Fibre Channel products use our Simulyzer™ technology that enables the hardware to simultaneously perform Fibre Channel data generation and Fibre Channel monitoring on the same physical board. 

Test Instrumentation

Software Tools

ST_Tabs_Icon.pngfcXplorer and the FC SDK


fcXplorer, AIT's Fibre Channel Simulator and Analyzer Test Software provides an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) for AIT's Fibre Channel Simulyzer™ interface modules. fcXplorer troubleshoots, optimizes, plans and configures Fibre Channel traffic loading. Low- and High-level protocol analysis features provide capture, filter, time stamp and interpretation of Fibre Channel traffic and generation of advanced statistics. fcXplorer can alert engineers to potential performance and configuration problems allowing users to quickly identify and remedy any anomalous network condition.

AIT's Fibre Channel Software Development Kit provides a complete suite of software Application Programmer Interfaces (APIs) and tools to support intuitive and effective access to the features and functions of the AIT Simulyzer™ hardware modules.
