TTTech First Company Worldwide to Offer AFDX Switch in Ultra-Light 3U VPX Form Factor

TTTech is the first company worldwide to offer AFDX® switch hardware with the standard ANSI form factor 3U VPX. The rugged but at the same time extremely light and space-saving switch will support customers in the design of optimized aerospace system architectures.

Savings in Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) are key for designing the next generation of future aircraft. SWaP is critical for complying to operational life and budgetary constraints. Another factor for achieving such cost savings is the use of standards like Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet (AFDX) for critical aircraft networks.

We have taken next steps regarding this trend and combined several standards into one compact and extremely light weight product, the AFDXSwitch 3U VPX Rugged. The successful integration of the ARINC 664 p7 standard (AFDX) into the standard 3U VPX ANSI (American National Standards Institute) form factor resulted in a robust 16 port AFDX switch – the only highly rugged 3U VPX AFDX switch on the market today.

We also offer a product variant that supports two more standard traffic classes (IEEE 802.3 and SAE AS6802) besides ARINC 664 p7 that can be used in parallel on the same network. This brings even more flexibility to engineers when designing system architectures for the next generation of future aircraft.
