Reaching for the Sky with Aerospace Switches from TTTech

TTTech embedded products for the aerospace sector, including the available switches, are certified according to DO-178B/C and DO-254 Level A and provide an ideal platform for DO-297-compliant systems. The networking technologies provide solutions for innovative functions that address complexity, enable modularity and provide growth at total lower life-cycle cost.

Worldwide market leaders use the aerospace switches and other flight and rugged hardware solutions, for example in applications for Airbus A380, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Bombardier CSeries and the Embraer Legacy 450 and 500 business jets.

TTTech offers AFDX as well as TTEthernet aerospace switches. The AFDX commercial off-the-shelf products play an integral part in routing bandwidth-regulated traffic through a safety-critical network environment with high-reliability and high-speed communication requirements. TTTech TTEthernet products uniquely integrate three traffic classes into one solution, maintaining hard real-time data communication in safety-critical distributed systems based on Ethernet networks.

Among the innovative aerospace switches are the TTESwitch A664 6U VPX and the AFDXSwitch 3U VPX: TTTech is the first company worldwide to offer a rugged  AFDX switch in the standard ANSI form factor 3U VPX. The use of standards like Avionics Full-Duplex Switched Ethernet is critical for cost savings. Correspondingly, the 6U VPX switch is a rugged, high-performance Deterministic Ethernet solution, capable of full-duplex speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbit/s. With the addition of this standard 6U VPX form factor to the portfolio, TTTech once more proves to be committed to support industry-wide accepted standards. Both of these aerospace switches are extremely light and space-saving which supports costumers in the design of optimized system architectures as savings in size, weight, and power (SWaP) are key for designing the next generation of future aircraft.
