The problem of reliability modeling of the SCI (Scalable Coherent Interface) is studied. A message-based source-destination reliability expression is proposed according to the specification of SCI Interconnection Matrix (IM) in the design of avionics system. The reliability models of three SCI rings are developed and the factors which influence the reliability of SCI rings are studied. Conclusions show that the proposed reliability algorithm is appropriate to the design of the avionics system.
