RCNIC-A2PAX Interface

Dual port 10/100 full duplex PCI card (PMC on carrier) for AFDX / ARINC 664 support


The RCNIC platform is a high performance, PCI module (PMC on carrier card) for the AFDX / ARINC 664 protocol. With two independent ports for traffic monitoring, traffic generation, external triggering and analysis, the RCNIC provides high-resolution time-tagging of incoming packets simultaneously with highly accurate traffic generation. An IRIG-B receiver/generator is included for synchronization to an external IRIG-B time source and for synchronization between multiple RCNIC boards.

Our exclusive pipeline architecture avoids the local bottlenecks of CPU-based interface solutions, and significantly outperforms standard NIC cards. The interface can be easily configured as either one dual-redundant AFDX / ARINC 664 port, or two high performance, independent ports. Simultaneous, real time traffic generation on both ports is highly accurate. Input and output triggers are provided, errors are detected or can be injected, while extensive link and protocol-level statistics are available for analysis.

Programs have complete access to all frame and header data, can easily wrap data and perform extensive BIT testing. Each incoming packet is tagged with a 20 nsec resolution, 64-bit time-tag.

  • SDK includes high-level AFDX API, low-level (raw frame-based) CPCAP API, and .NET integration libraries at no additional charge
  • PCI card (PMC on carrier) for AFDX/ARINC 664 Part 7 support
  • Two independent 10/100 MHz full duplex ports
