Certifiable 10/100/1,000 Mbit/s TTEthernet Network Switch Module
The TTESwitch Module A664 Pro brings the full power of Deterministic Ethernet communication technology to aerospace certifiable hardware. The switch module enables a wide range of certifiable networks: from standard Ethernet networks, ARINC A664 part 7/AFDX® networks to fully-configurable TTEthernet networks – with speeds up to 1 Gbit/s. The switch module uniquely supports three standard traffic classes in parallel on one physical media enhanced by additional features for seamless integration of Ethernet network interface cards. Its very small form factor makes it fit at the core of all avionics switches.
The TTESwitch Module A664 Pro enables the implementation of critical network-centric applications. The high-performance switch enables packet processing on all 24 ports with full line speeds:
The TTESwitch Module A664 Pro allows the configuration of up to 4,096 virtual links (VLs). VLs can be configured with 8 priorities and a bandwidth allocation gap (BAG) of 0.5 to 1,600 ms.
The configuration of the network is stored in the switch’s non-volatile memory (256 Mbit). As an option, IEEE 802.1Q VLANs can be configured. Profiled IP/UDP, redundancy management and traffic shaping are implemented in the hardware. A built-in TMS 570 CPU is used for management and higher-layer protocol functions.
The built-in management module runs on a separate CPU. It allows for data loading as well as for querying the network status via SNMP. Data loading is done according to ARINC 615A-3.
