Avionics tool for ARINC 429 testing with a COTS tablet computer introduced by AIM-USA
TREVOSE, Pa., 23 March 2014. AIM-USA in Trevose, Pa., is introducing a smart avionics test and measurement tool set for handling ARINC 429 testing with a standard application.
Made up of standard AIM hardware and software solutions plus a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) computer, the core avionics test component is based on AIM’s ANET 429-x Ethernet-based databus interface. Users can operate with 4, 8 or 16 programmable ARINC 429 channels via the wireless Ethernet interface.
The key advantage of such a platform is the execution of AIM’s standard PBA.proTM databus test and analysis software with application-specific PBA.proTM projects with panels and graphic user interfaces for maintenance tasks, pre-flight check out, data logger, and other features.
Existing panels like the AIM PBA.pro-Light or customer-created panels also are possible. Various options of host platforms as well as the use of an encrypted wireless network offer flexibility and mobility of applications.
The AIM ANET family of Ethernet based avionics interfaces has an on-board Linux OS. The platform hosting the standard AIM PBA.proTM software framework application is a Windows 8.1 COTS tablet computer.
Various models are available, including an eight-inch quad core Intel Atom tablet. ANET solutions for MIL-STD-1553A/B and STANAG3910/EFEX also are available.
