Abstract

AFDX (Avionics Full Duplex Switched Ethernet) is a standard communication network for avionics based on Ethernet links and special-purpose switches. This paper proposes an AFDX emulator based on standard Ethernet hardware (cards and switches) to build a low cost AFDX network for training or basic research purposes. We also propose the integration of the emulator within an ARINC-653 platform to allow the development of real-time Ada applications. Finally, a performance evaluation has been done in order to show the usability of the emulator.
