Flexible FPGA Chip for Safety-Critical AFDX Systems
For evaluation, the PMC module P522 from MEN can be used – it is also available as a COTS product and can also be used as an alternative to the PMCs already existing on the market.
Being an FPGA component, the CS1 allows customization to realize, for example, gateway solutions like AFDX to CAN, AFDX to standard Ethernet or AFDX to ARINC 429. Developed according to the ARINC 664P7-1 standard the CS1 can be used in applications of both Boeing and Airbus.
Thanks to the Flash based architecture with triple-redundant logic, the FPGA chip is prepared for safety-critical demands and comes with an ARINC-653 compliant port API (Application Programming Interface) and integrated SNMP/ICMP protocols.
