Solutions for Aerospace Electronic Networking

The importance ascribed to aerospace electronics and software has changed fundamentally. The networking of line-replaceable units (LRUs)  is integral to aerospace electronics. Initially, just a few line-replaceable units were used in aircraft, but innovations were soon increasingly based on electronics, and predominated by a share of functionality residing in software and functional integration. This rising complexity means that extensive, reproducible and effective tests are more important than ever in all phases of LRU and system development.

Vector is simplifying these complexity for developers and test engineers with its solutions for aerospace electronic networking. The focus here is on tools for E/E architecture, monitoring and analyzing the bus communication and on system as well as software testing tools.

Overview of Advantages

  • In solving your networking tasks, Vector applies its over 20 years experience in working with bus systems and producing development tools for embedded systems.
  • Errors are corrected or avoided early in development – conveniently and cost-effectively.
  • You can validate changes to the software and communication system with regression tests – quickly and easily.
  • You can exchange data of databases, models and test scripts with other developers or between OEMs and suppliers – conveniently, reliably and without overhead.
  • You benefit from a multibus tools approach, e.g. in developing, testing or using gateways.


The Results:

  • Your development times and costs are reduced.
  • Efficiency in the supply chain in increased.
