AIT's Flight Simulyzer DataLoader is a complete ARINC 615/615A Data Loader development kit which provides a package of software tools supporting ARINC 615A data load and Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) file transfer operations over both standard Ethernet LANs and ARINC 664/AFDX networks. A graphical user interface (GUI) provides intuitive and easy to use control of data loader operations. Additionally, TFTP and ARINC 615A application programmer's interfaces (APIs) are provided to support integration of the data load functions into custom applications.
The DataLoader does not require a proprietary computing platform, for standard Ethernet LAN operations it can simply be installed on any Windows or Linux PC with a LAN interface. For ARINC 615A and TFTP operations over ARINC 664/AFDX any desktop PC hosting AIT's ARINC-664 PMC, XMC, PCI, or PCI Express end system modules can be used.
AIT's DataLoader has been verified ARINC 615A compliant and has been proven to work loading A380, B787, and B747-B target LRUs. The GUI supports line maintenance and bench-top loader applications. The ARINC 615A API and command line utilities are ideal for automated production environments requiring repetitive operations.
For standard data load operations over the Ethernet LAN, the DataLoader provides a software only ARINC 615A solution. The software can be loaded onto any desktop PC or laptop running Windows or Linux to provide a complete data loader solution. All operations utilize the standard LAN interface of the host.
Script Multiple Operations
All ARINC 615A data load and A665 media operations are also supported at the command line allowing multiple operations to be scripted for easy execution of repetitive operations.
High level APIs are provided supporting TFTP and ARINC 615A data load operations. The ARINC 615A API provides simple functions allowing user applications to initiate all data load operations (FIND, Upload, Information, ...). The TFTP API provides simple functions supporting both TFTP client (File Put/Get) and server operations to be controlled by user applications.
The APIs are provided with complete documentation and source code sample applications demonstrating use. Both the TFTP and ARINC 615A API can be used together with the AIT ARINC 664 ES API to supporting integrated applications for ARINC 664, TFTP, and ARINC 615A data loading.
AIT also offers ARINC 615A DataLoader client software that can be customized for embedded applications. The client software is available as source code that enables LRU manufacturer’s to embed the 615A DataLoader support onto their systems, reducing the risk, time, and cost associated with implementing this capability using in-house resources.
The ARINC 665-3 Media Set Builder is a software utility for the creation and formatting, of ARINC 665 media sets from user raw software payloads. The software utility enables the user to build ARINC 665-1, -2, or -3 media sets from raw data files. The Media Set Builder can be used in scripts for automated creation as well as integrated into a user application using the well-defined API delivered with the utility.
