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 solution is based on XMC modules from AIT, a full-featured and aerospace-industry-proven hardware. The XMC modules are installed on a carrier board that is plugged into the SCALEXIO Processing Unit1), providing the optimal bandwidth to the real-time model. dSPACE specifically developed QNX device drivers to ensure real-time simulation capability. Configuration with the well-known and established AIT Flight Simulyzers is seamlessly integrated into the configuration process via dSPACE ConfigurationDesk.


1) The different versions of the SCALEXIO Processing Unit provide various options for using SCALEXIO solutions.
