Omaha, NE — March 2013

AIT’s Flight Simulyzer GUI Bus Analyzer Released for Linux

Avionics Interface Technologies (AIT) announced the release of its industry-leading Flight Simulyzer (F-SIM) avionics databus protocol analyzer for Linux operating systems. Flight Simulyzer is an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI) bus analyzer that facilitates the control, configuration, and analysis of MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and/or ARINC 664/AFDX©bus data.

F-SIM has been tested with Ubuntu, Debian, and CentOS Linux.

Flight Simulyzer is designed for simple, one-click monitoring of databus activity. The GUI is intuitive, using an operation toolbar with icons that support one-click operation. A configuration settings feature enables the easy setup of MIL-STD-1553 BC, RT and Bus Monitor, ARINC 429 Transmit and Receive channels, and multiple ARINC 664/AFDX End-Systems. Setup configurations can be saved and re-used by F-SIM and these same configuration files may also be used by C, C++, .NET and LabVIEW application programs. This eliminates unnecessary duplication of efforts having to program databus configurations after simulating the system with F-SIM. The Linux software developer can use F-SIM to build up his databus configuration with a GUI that can be embedded into his application, saving a lot of engineering development time.

Flight Simulyzer is designed to take advantage of the full functionality of AIT’s entire line of MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and ARINC 664/AFDX© boards. These boards are available in multiple form factors, including PXI, PCI, PCI Express, and USB. The USB1553 and USB429 combined with F-SIM for Linux represent an affordable solution for any portable avionics analyzer or data recording application. Other F-SIM applications include: production-level testing and verification, rapid prototyping, flight-line diagnostics and testing, even in-flight testing.
