OMAHA, NE. The Flight Simulyzer (F-SIM) avionics databus protocol analyzer has been released for Linux Operating Systems by Avionics Interface Technologies (AIT). F-SIM is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) bus analyzer for analyzing, configuring, and controlling data from ARINC 429, ARINC 664/AFDX, and MIL-STD-1553 buses. It has been tested in CentOS Linux, Debian, and Ubuntu environments.

F-SIM is architected to leverage the full capability of AIT’s ARINC 429, ARINC 664/AFDX, and MIL-STD-1553 boards. ARINC 429 transmit and receive channels; numerous ARINC 664/AFDX end systems; and MIL-STD-1553 BC, RT, and Bus Monitors can be established using F-SIM’s configuration settings feature. These configurations can be saved and re-used by F-SIM, aw well as C, C++, LabVIEW, and .NET application programs.

F-SIM is also viable in applications such as flight-line and in-flight testing, production-level testing and verification, and rapid prototyping. More information on the Flight Simulyzer can be found at
