ADLINK First FACE™ Certified TSS Product for Both C++ and JAVA APIs Reduces Time, Cost and Risk for Avionics Systems Integration

  • First company to have Transport Services Segment (TSS) product in C++ and Java APIs certified as FACE™ Conformant
  • ADLINK JAVA TSS used in a Department of Defense (DoD) Program of Record by major aerospace manufacturer
  • Conformance puts ADLINK in the forefront of the FACE software marketplace

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and San Jose, CA, USA – March 27 2019 – ADLINK Technology Inc. is the first company to announce support for both C++ and Java in its Vortex Data Distribution Service (DDS) product. Proven to provide reliable, real-time data sharing for mission critical systems, it has passed all the required tests for conformance certification to Edition 2.1.1 of the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard.

“Marking a ground-breaking achievement, ADLINK is the first DDS vendor to attain FACE TSS conformance certification for its JAVA API,” said Judy Cerenzia, Director of The Open Group FACE Consortium. ADLINK’s JAVA Application Programming Interfaces (API) TSS product is already being used by a Major aerospace manufacturer – reducing their time, cost and risk of avionics systems integration.

The FACE approach is a government-, industry-, academia-developed open software standard and business strategy. Providing a supplier-independent, standardized environment, it enables commercial software components to be migrated rapidly across global avionic systems that conform to the FACE Standard.

As leaders in the FACE software marketplace, ADLINK’s Vortex DDS plays a pivotal role in many mission-critical aerospace and defense systems globally, ranging from radar processors to simulation and next-generation, network-centric systems. The standards-based, open architecture software provides efficient, secure and interoperable real-time device, edge and cloud data sharing, ensuring that the right information is delivered to the right place, at the right time.

“We’re already actively engaged on a major aerospace and defense project that is a United States DoD Program of Record; this marks a significant milestone for ADLINK,” said Mike Roberts, solutions architect at ADLINK. “Because of the maturity of our software and experience in the aerospace and defense sector, we were able to exactly match the Vortex DDS JAVA and C++ TSS to the FACE APIs that are included in the FACE Technical Standard Edition 2.1.1, which helps to minimize risk associated with integration.”

ADLINK will make a formal announcement of the completion of the FACE Certification process to the FACE Consortium at The Open Group FACE™ Consortium Member Meeting in St. Pete Beach, FL, on April 23-25. During AeroDef Manufacturing, which runs from April 30 to May 1 in Long Beach, California, ADLINK will demonstrate its Vortex DDS TSS for avionics system. Arrange a meeting with ADLINK at AeroDef here.

Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card Uses PCIe Gen4 x16 to Communicate with AMD Ryzen PC

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demonstration, the Achronix VectorPath™ accelerator card connects to an AMD Ryzen based PC using PCIe Gen4 x16 interface. The host PC issues commands to have the Speedster™7t FPGA on the VectorPath accelerator card write and read to external GDDR6 memory on the board. These data transactions are performed using the Speedster7t FPGA’s 2D network on chip or NoC which eliminates the need to write complex RTL code to design the host PC to GDDR6 memory interface.

How TI mmWave radar safety guards can help improve manufacturing productivity

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

The shift toward industry 4.0 has spurred an increase of robots on factory floors, including industrial robots, collaborative robots and more. Because these robots work alongside humans, they must have advanced sensing and functional safety capabilities to recognize potential collisions and minimize risk of injury. This article discusses how TI mmWave-based safety guards can be used by industrial companies to help improve manufacturing productivity without compromising safety.

High Voltage Charging Solution for Energy Storage & Backup Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Today there is growing demand for energy storage with more power, longer range, and longer run time. But the question remains: how can we increase our energy storage given the energy storage mediums on the market today? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Huyhn from Analog Devices about the benefits of high voltage energy storage, why stacked battery cells are crucial to these kinds of systems, how high voltage energy storage systems can reduce conduction loss exponentially and what kind of high voltage charging solutions from Analog Devices are on the market today.
