Ethernet family of standare area network technologies. The six primary aspects of an AFDX data network include full duplexredundancy, determinism, high speed performance, switched and profiled network.

Webarchive template wayback links CS1 maint: Retrieved from ” https: Basing on arunc from the IEEE Archived from the original PDF on ARINC operates in such a way that its single transmitter communicates in a point-to-point connection, thus requiring a significant amount of wiring which amounts to added weight. Sub-virtual links are assigned to a particular virtual link.

However, the number sub-VLs that may be created in a single virtual link is limited to four. Also the switch, having a VL configuration table loaded, can reject any erroneous data transmission that may otherwise swamp other branches of the network.

However, total bandwidth cannot exceed the maximum available bandwidth on the network. AFDX was developed by Airbus Industries for the A, [3] initially to address real-time issues for flight-by-wire system development. Many commercial aircraft use the ARINC standard developed in for safety-critical applications.

Therefore, in a network with multiple switches cascaded star topologythe total number of virtual links is nearly limitless. Retrieved May 28, The network is designed in such a way that all critical traffic is prioritized using QoS policies so delivery, latency, and jitter are all guaranteed to be within set parameters. AFDX is a worldwide registered trademark by Airbus. Bi-directional communications must therefore require the specification of a complementary VL.


Through the use of twisted pair or fiber optic cables, full-duplex Ethernet uses two separate pairs or strands for transmitting and receiving the data. Also sub-virtual links do not provide guaranteed bandwidth or latency due to the buffering, but AFDX specifies that latency is measured from the traffic regulator function staandard. A data word consists of 32 bits communicated over a twisted pair cable using the bipolar return-to-zero modulation. However, some features of a real AFDX switch may be missing, such as traffic policing and redundancy functions.

In addition, AFDX can provide quality of service and dual link redundancy. AFDX extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic stanxard.

Each virtual link is allocated dedicated bandwidth [sum of all VL bandwidth allocation gap BAG rates x MTU] with the total amount of bandwidth defined by the system integrator. The architecture adopted by AgustaWestland is centered around the AFDX data network developed for the latest standadd airliners. The virtual link ID is a bit unsigned integer value that follows a constant bit field. Data are read in a round-robin sequence among the virtual links with data to transmit. This is the maximum rate data can be sent, and it is guaranteed to be sent at 664 interval.

Virtual links are unidirectional logic paths from the source end-system to all of the destination end-systems.

The switches are designed to route an incoming frame from one, and only one, end system to a predetermined set of end systems. It specifies interoperable functional elements at the following OSI reference model layers:. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Multiple arimc can be bridged together in a cascaded star topology. This ADN operates without the use of a bus controller thereby increasing the reliability of the network architecture.

There is no specified limit to the number of virtual links that can be handled by each end system, although this will stanfard determined by the BAG rates and maximum frame size specified for each VL versus the Ethernet data rate.

AgustaWestland asserts its independence in the cockpit”. The switch must also be non-blocking at the data rates that are specified by the system integrator, and in practice this may mean that the switch shall have a switching capacity that is the sum of all of its physical ports. This type of network can significantly reduce wire runs and, thus, the overall weight of the aircraft. Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet AFDX is a data network, patented by international aircraft manufacturer Airbus[1] for safety-critical applications that utilizes dedicated bandwidth while providing deterministic quality of service QoS.
