AFDX is based on Ethernet technology and adapted to the avionics environment. This the port number of the addressed application on the destination computer.

This means that the minimum value of length is 8, and maximum value is Checksum of the entire UDP program and pseudo header. This is the actual payload data. In a Traditional Ethernet Switch, incoming Ethernet frames are routed afds output links based on the Ethernet destination address. The mbps link of an end system can support multiple protoco links. That is the 1 msec BAG is typically allowed only 64 bytes per frame of data, while msec group is allowed the maximum bytes per frame. Data may be lost.

For Bi-Directional Communication and no data lost.

An AFDX implementation requires two redundant switch networks, A and B, and that each packet be replicated and sent out on both networks. End systems need a way to identify the corresponding packets that arrive on the A and B networks. In AFDX, all packets are transmitted over virtual link are provided with a 1-byte sequence number field that occurs just before the FCS field. The best article related to AFDX protocol.

Remembered all the things which we implemented while going through this. Was a great refresher. I am frequent visitor of that site.

It is the best explanation of AFDX protocol and other stuffs.

The major components of an AFDX network are: Traditional subsystem such as the flight control, global positioning system, tire pressure monitoring system etc… AFDX End System: This interface exports an API to these subsystems, thereby enabling them to communicate with each other through a simple message interface. Based on full-duplex, switched Ethernet technology. MAC Header comprises a source to and Destination address. Each Address is 48 bits wide.

The Destination Address identifies the Virtual Link. The source address is a unicast address. The Destination address is a multicast address.

Each virtual link is assigned to parameters. But we can maintain zero-jitter by using scheduling method at Virtual links The difference between the minimum and maximum time from when a source node sends a message to when the sink node receives the message. Data may be lost Afxd sampling port has buffer storage for a single message arriving message overwrite the message currently stored in the buffer.

AFDX message are sent in 1 Frame, data may be lost or overwritten. Each sampling port must provide an indication of the freshness of the message contained in the port buffer. Without this indication, it is impossible to tell whether the transmitting Avionics subsystem has stopped transmitting or is repeatedly sending the message.

For Bi-Directional Communication and no data lost A queuing port has sufficient storage for a fixed number of messages a Configuration parameterand new messages are appended to the queue.

Reading from a queuing port removes the message from the queue FIFO. For a Bidirectional communication, ports should be used in queuing mode. These numbers are determined by the system configuration and are fixed for each AFDX communications port.

The IP header is added and IP checksum is calculated for each fragment. The VL layer is responsible for scheduling the Ethernet frames for transmission, adding the sequence numbers on a per-VL basisand passing the frames to the Redundancy Management Unit, where the frames are replicated if necessary and the Ethernet source address is updated with the physical port ID on which the frame is transmitted.


Reception is the reverse of transmission.

These steps are carried out at the virtual link level. The resulting IP packet is passed on to the IP network level.

The network level is responsible for checking the IP checksum field and the UDP packet reassembly, if necessary. Here a sequence number field is added to each frame, and the sequence numbers are incremented on each successive frame. The sequence number is added to enable the receive function to reconstruct a single ordered stream of frames afcx duplication before delivery to the receiving partition. In default mode each frame is sent across both of two networks. When the second frame is received with this sequence number, it is simply discarded.

This is default mode. The same frames are sent through both network A and B and it should deliver the first of the redundant frames received. The frames are sent through either network A or B RM configuration protoocl generally based on the Skewmax parameter Skewmax is nothing but the maximum time between the reception protoocol two redundant frames.

System integrator will provide this value in milliseconds which depends on number switches crossed by a frame. Thanks Vijay for your comments, Please let me know if you any information needs to be add. Protodol a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
