Condor Engineering, a GE Fanuc company in Santa Barbara, Calif., is updating its Windows-based, Avionics Full Duplex Switched Ethernet (AFDX)/ARINC 664 bus analyzer tool. Condor’s BusTools/AFDX brings improved levels of power and ease of use to monitoring, test, analysis, and simulation of AFDX network nodes and switches. BusTools/AFDX can run from any standard network interface card (NIC) or with Condor’s AFDX NIC, the only interface on the market today that can support full AFDX bandwidth. The tool’s auto-discovery window automatically organizes traffic according to end system, virtual links, and ports; enables intuitive “visual filtering” by simply clicking on selected objects; and right-clicking on selections brings up a context menu for functions such as monitoring and logging. The tool’s configuration windows provide drag-and-drop facility for building data sets and AFDX message structures; drag-and-drop facility for building filter equations and triggers; and intuitive panel for building filter elements. Monitoring provides AFDX port, virtual link (VL), and raw frame views; flexible and complex triggering operation; simplified multiwindow displays; and frame statistics.
