Shared Memory Network Overview
AIT’s Shared Memory Network (SMN) interface modules provide host systems with an interface to a high speed (2.125 Gbps) optical data network which can be used to share data, in real-time, between multiple distributed systems.
The optical, ring-based network allows data to be shared with deterministic timing at high data rates to support a wide variety of distributed, real-time, hardware-in-the-loop testing and simulation scenarios and applications including:
- Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Systems
- Avionics System Simulators
- Automotive Testing Systems
- Manufacturing and Industrial Control Systems
Comprehensive Software Support
All AIT Shared Memory Network modules are provided with a full set of software drivers (for Windows, Linux, VxWorks, LabVIEW Real Time, and others on request) and an intuitive high-level C Application Programmer’s Interface including complete documentation and sample application source code. Additionally, software utilities are provided to support field upgrades of the onboard firmware.
