When building automated test sets (ATSs) for manufacturing or depot test, test engineers often overlook digital avionics bus interfaces. These include generic interfaces, high-speed or backbone buses, and application-specific buses. Some devices under test (DUTs) require modified or custom protocols, which usually lead to significant risks and maintenance costs over the life of the ATS. When choosing a digital avionics interface solution, consider the following factors:
Leverage the most comprehensive coverage of PXI-based digital avionics protocol interfaces or choose only the components you need
Develop your own IP libraries or use IP from NI and its diverse partner network
Program graphically in NI LabVIEW or in VHDL with Xilinx Vivado
Use a modular approach to instrumentation to adapt your ATS based on your requirements
Consolidate your instruments under a single software and hardware platform
Communication buses in aircraft, satellites, launch vehicles, and weapon systems are getting faster and more complex. Check out this demonstration using NI PXI High-Speed Serial instruments and LabVIEW with New Wave DV IP for ARINC 818.
The NI Partner Network is a global community of domain, application, and overall test development experts working closely with NI to meet the needs of the engineering community. NI Partners are trusted solution providers, systems integrators, consultants, product developers, and services and sales channel experts skilled across a wide range of industries and application areas.
NI works with customers throughout the life of an application, delivering training, technical support, consultation and integration services, and maintenance programs. Teams can discover new skills by participating in NI-specific and geographic user groups and build proficiency with online and in-person training.
The digital avionics bus interface is key to manufacturing or depot test, but deciding on the right tool isn’t always as simple as it seems. In this webinar, learn how you can simplify your digital avionics interface selection while reducing maintenance costs and improving system sustainability.
