Flexible Designs That Meet Tomorrow’s Requirements

AIT creates and implements avionics bus and network solutions that work everywhere—from the verification lab and ground support to fully ruggedized, flight-certified systems.

Guaranteeing the Future

AIT fully controls its intellectual property (IP). We implement protocols in FPGA code ported to the latest available FPGA devices. This means continuous adaptability to new high speed chips as they become available.

Just a few years ago, AIT’s Fibre Channel and Ethernet products operated at 1Gb/sec. As Fibre Channel and Ethernet evolved, we’ve evolved right along with them. Our latest IP supports 10Gb/sec  and soon up to 40Gb/sec. And our IP-on-FPGA strategy means we’ll keep on evolving.

AIT Mitigates Obsolescence

Sometimes the best future is upgrading what already exists.

Example: A manufacturer discontinued production of a critical IC central to operation of a VME-to-PCI adapter board.  AIT replicated that IC’s functions in an FPGA, preserving the user’s investment in existing test equipment.

Intuitive Multi-Platform Software Tools Simplify Application Integration

Ensure success of your program with AIT’s easy-to-use, portable software tools for fast, worry-free integration—from APIs and drivers for embedded operating systems to protocol analyzers to enterprise-wide applications.

Multi-Platform Software Portability is a Key to the Future

Software portability means savings: time, money, training. AIT tools support the programming languages used across the worldwide avionics community:

  • C#/.NET
  • C
  • C++
  • LabVIEW
  • …and more

 

AIT works in virtually any operating system and supports:

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • LabView Real Time
  • QNX
  • VxWorks and VxWorks 653
  • LynxOS
  • …and more

If there’s an API or OS technology that requires a bus or network interconnection solution AIT is ready to solve your requirement.
