Avionics Databuses & SW

Abaco Systems' long history of leadership in the embedded avionics I/O industry provides our customers with the broadest range of avionics products to help them efficiently deploy their projects into military and commercial environments.

Feature-rich products for your test bench

Aviation electronics, or avionics, consist of electronic systems for use on aircraft, satellites and spacecraft for aircraft networking, navigation, display, and management of multiple onboard systems. Abaco avionics products are widely used in the development, simulation, testing and maintenance of aircraft, space, weapons and ground-to-air systems.

Our considerable experience in rugged products enables us to provide rugged and conduction-cooled boards for harsh embedded environments. Our products are flying on numerous military and commercial aircraft platforms to provide as decades of service without failure.

Before your rugged avionics project flie, or is installed in a ground station, you need to test and verify its operation. Abaco Systems’ MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429 and AFDX/ARINC 664 I/O products support aircraft and system flight test and ground test activities such as onboard performance evaluations, avionics integration testing, mission scenario rehearsal, prototype evaluations, ground station systems testing, and prototype simulator design

Our avionics products provide high-performance avionics databus functionality for test and simulation in an assortment of protocols, channel counts, and capability for a variety of computer platforms. Our BusTool databus analyzers provide an intuitive and easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI) that allows users to easily capture and analyze MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, or AFDX bus data, either inflight, on the ground, or in the lab.

Abaco’s products portfolio supports the main aircraft interface technologies (MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429) that have been the standard for the past 50 years in the industry. We have also invested in the new high-speed, determinist Ethernet-based technologies, AFDX/ARINC 664. Our wide product range supports many interface technologies, including standards such as PCIe, XMC, VPX, AMC and Express Card. All of our interface board products have driver support for many operating systems provided with the board, including API source code examples so the user can tailor the code to suit their application.

Abaco has developed a powerful set of avionics databus analyzer application software that allow users to monitor and control receive, transmit, logging and analysis functions of avionics systems. Included in our BusTools software applications is an extensive suite of tools for laboratory, in-flight, flight line or any other situation that requires real-time data acquisition and analysis.

Rugged when you need it

Abaco Systems excels at the design of COTS systems with levels of ruggedization ranging from benign to being capable of withstanding harsh military and aerospace conditions such as thermal extremes, vibration, shock, sand and dust, salt fog, humidity, acceleration, electromagnetic interference, and nuclear/electromagnetic pulse, as well as human intrusion and compromise. Learn more about our thermal and rugged capabilities.

Unparalleled support

Whether you are using MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, AFDX, or ARINC 664 for the latest design, transitioning from an older design to a more supportable design, or incorporating the latest version of an existing product, we continue to support production of our avionics product lines for legacy and new designs. To provide the best product support for our customers, Abaco offers Product Lifecycle Management services for products that require long term support, are no longer recommended for new designs, or that have been discontinued.
