Advanced Avionics Bus and Network Solutions
AIT’s advanced avionics and bus solutions are key to the onboard communications technologies support the world’s most advanced military and commercial aircraft programs, including:
- Boeing 777, 787
- Airbus 350, 380
Unparalleled Applications Breadth Across Every Environment
We support a wide range of applications and requirements…….
- Avionics system design and test
- Automated test systems
- Rugged airborne requirements
- Ground support and maintenance
….. with a wide range of products including:
While always pushing the envelope of the latest technologies for high speed avionics networks, AIT is equally committed to ongoing support of well-established protocols such as MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 used in existing aircraft such as the F-16 and Boeing 737
Expertise That Looks Ahead
Supporting today’s and tomorrow’s avionics bus and network technologies demands the experience and expertise that knows where high speed network technology is headed. AIT knows.
AIT products fully meet the ever-evolving requirements of new technologies:
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:
- …and more
AIT works in virtually any operating system and supports:
- LabView Real Time
