AIT, TTTech Release ARINC 664 Part 7 Test & Simulation Modules


Avionics Interface Technologies (AIT) has released a new line of test and simulation modules for ARINC 664 Part 7 databuses. The modules bring the full power of deterministic ethernet communication technology on aerospace certifiable hardware. The complete test systems provide innovative features to test, simulate and develop three configurable traffic classes: Time-Triggered traffic (TT), SAE AS6802-compliant; shaped traffic, ARINC 664 Part 7-compliant; and Best-Effort traffic (BE), IEEE 802.3-compliant.

AIT’s entire 664 T&S line supports 1 Gbit/s full-duplex ethernet links, ten times faster than the industry standard.

The innovative board design includes maximum processing capability, powerful memory resources, and customized ARINC 664p7 MACs. This provides users with optimum capability for demanding ARINC 664p7 applications. Each of the modules can be configured for standard ARINC 664p7 or for the Boeing 787 mode of operation.

Our ARINC 664-enabling technology allows hard real-time operation in distributed systems based on Ethernet networks. AIT’s 664 T&S modules support ARINC 664-compliant traffic and provide high-integrity redundancy management. The upper layer protocols (UDP and IP layers) are fully implemented onboard, and are therefore not dependent on host driver software.

AIT’s 664 T&S line is offers compliance with the latest aerospace standards, including: ARINC 664 Part 7; IEEE 802.3, SAE AS6802, ARINC 653; RTCA DO-254; DO-178B; and DO-160F.

AIT’s 664 T&S line complements their rugged 664 and TTEthernet End Systems, offered in partnership with TTTech North America. They are currently offered for PCI Card and PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) form factors, with XMC, PCIe, and cPCI versions coming soon.


Avionics Interface Technologies is a leading supplier of avionics bus interface circuits, modules, and a wide array of simulation and analyzer products. The company has supported all major DOD top tier suppliers as well as the Air Force, Navy, Army, Marines, and NASA directly. Their technically superior products offer both custom and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) user software and a flexible hardware architecture based on the use of FPGAs with embedded Power PC Processors for onboard specific application programming. AIT has four office locations in the US, it is headquartered in Omaha, NE, with design and production based in Dayton, Ohio, near Wright Patterson AFB. AIT uses Technical Manufacture Representatives in North America and distributors worldwide to provide the best possible local support. AIT is a private company led by a US citizen based Board of Directors allowing for execution of sensitive and/or classified ITAR program development.
