Comprehensive Support for High Speed Networks & Legacy Bus Technologies
Depot and Operational level testers must be capable of supporting a wide range of testing capabilities. To accomplish this it is essential that ATE systems are capable of supporting both the latest high speed avionics technologies as well as legacy interfaces which remain relevant as aircraft system life cycles continue to be extended.
Common Avionics Network & Bus Protocols
AIT provides comprehensive support for both the latest and legacy avionics interface technologies with instruments supporting Ethernet (10Mbit/s to 10Gbit/s), ARINC 664, Fibre Channel, MIL-STD-1553, and ARINC 429.
Avionics Instruments for the Latest High Speed ATE Platforms
As the data rates and bandwidth requirements for avionics systems continue to increase, the test engineers challenge of designing ATE to support the demands of today, and tomorrow at a reasonable cost becomes increasingly difficult.
The ATE systems of today require:
- Accurate data logging with precise time-stamping (with sub u-Sec precision)
- Time synchronization across instruments and subsystem chassis
- High Bandwidth back-planes
- Instrument adaptability to support the protocols of today AND tomorrow.
To meet these requirements, ATE designers are increasingly turning to PXI Express based platforms, and we are ready to support this with a wide range of avionics network and bus test instruments for PXI Express.
