SCALEXIO Interface Solution for ARINC 664 and AFDX®

Connection to an ARINC 664 or AFDX® network

The SCALEXIO Interface Solution for ARINC 664 and AFDX® enables the connection of a dSPACE real-time system to an ARINC 664 or AFDX® network.

Interface Solution for AFDX®

The SCALEXIO Interface Solution for ARINC 664 and AFDX® (a registered trademark of Airbus) enables the connection of a dSPACE real-time system to an ARINC 664 or AFDX network. ARINC 664 and AFDX are typically used for commercial aircraft.
The solution is based on plug-on modules from AIT, full-featured and industry-proven hardware. The modules are installed on a carrier board that is plugged into the SCALEXIO system1), providing the optimal bandwidth to the real-time model. dSPACE specifically developed device drivers to ensure real-time simulation capability. Configuration with the well-known and established AIT Flight Simulyzer is seamlessly integrated into the configuration process via dSPACE ConfigurationDesk.
