Understanding ARINC 661 and its benefits in a certified environment
The ARINC Specification defines an overall architecture along with many sub-components to facilitate the creation of interactive displays. UA Accelerator is designed to augment your existing modeling tool-sets and software development processes. The same benefit applies to changes to the logic flow of the application, which will only result in changes to a specific user application, leaving the CDS code base and other user applications unaffected.
There are also some widgets that do not have any visual representation that are used to group other elements together as well as apply transformations on them.

Accelerate and de-risk the building of certified displays. While ARINC describes how widgets should function and what their parameters are, it does not define their visual appearance.
In order to be compliant with the standard, a CDS must have a kernel that can create the widgets tree during CDS initialization, using the Definition File, and communicate with UA in both ways using the runtime protocol. Finally, the contents of the displays, from graphical elements to possible groupings of these components, are defined by using a finite set of components called the widget library.
Third supplement has been adopted in It provides a quick and easy way to specify and design any cockpit display system that requires compliance with the new ARINC aviation standard. After seeing a few large commercial aircrafts lead the way, many programs, both commercial and military, are considering or have already adopted ARINC for their upcoming projects, ensuring the success of this standard. The first of these components is the Cockpit Display System CDSa rendering engine dedicated to presenting graphical information.
This number went up to 50 with the first update to the standard, atinc 57 with supplement 2, to 65 in revision 3 and to 68 with its most recent incarnation published earlier this year. Contact us for pricing options and additional information: Archived from the original PDF on Exchanging data between commercial ariinc is also usually difficult, making it a challenge for aircraft manufacturers to think about switching providers for a system during the life cycle of an aircraft — or to reuse display elements between projects that are built using different software architectures.
Also, similar to the overall ARINC architecture tying directly into high-level requirements, having a standard set of standarx with well-documented functionality helps accelerate the documentation of low-level detailed functional requirements for a certified project.

Cockpit Display System CDS and User Application UA A direct benefit of arjnc architecture is that updates to the display composition are done by creating new layout files instead of modifying code within a unified application. Offers HMI designers, systems engineers, and embedded engineers maximum control and flexibility for creating interactive real-time graphical displays.
Presagis technical services can help you accomplish the following tasks:. Standardd standard has been used in the military realm since its inception, with its most recent iteration published earlier this year.
A DF is composed of two parts: The task of creating aircraft cockpit displays has grown increasingly difficult over the past decade due to certifications rules DOB being applied more widely on military programs — along with the constant drive to deliver on shorter deadlines. Advertisement [ x ]. In addition, any Presagis software application can leverage user plugins and can integrate with other third party products.
They are natively stored in a binary format that is loaded into the CDS application at runtime. ARINC is a standard for commercial aircraft cockpit displays, and VAPS XT from Presagis allows embedded avionics display designers and developers to easily and cost-effectively meet this emerging avionics standard.
Main similarities from other User interface markup languages:. Main differences from other User interface markup languages:. The natural follow-on step is the ability to convert the XML definition files to the binary format that is required by the CDS for execution.
Each DF contains one or more layers, which are hierarchical listings of all widgets that standardd to be loaded along with their initial parameters such as position, size, and visibility. Presagis’ flagship product VAPS XT is the ideal solution for projects involving ARINC compliance, and we are committed standarc providing software that allows embedded avionics display designers and developers to easily and cost-effectively meet this emerging avionics standard.
Yannick Lefebvre is a senior application developer at Presagis. In that situation, each UA can be developed separately and is responsible for updating and reacting to events of a specific section of the display.

The ARINC avionics display standard has been in existence and evolving for close to a decade — with its most recent iteration published earlier this year. In a certified environment, this means that UA and CDS code does not need to be recompiled or wrinc for visual layout changes such as repositioning or changing the visual attributes of display elements. The first version of the standard was adopted in For developing cockpit display systems, Presagis offers VAPS XTzrinc model-based development tool that includes automatic code generation functionality.
Figure 1 shows the relation between the CDS and UA, along with their typical execution environments and stnadard communications between these two applications. Archived from the original on 30 June With VAPS XT Module, you can define the graphical representation and behavior of widgets according to the look and feel specified by the Style Guide of any given aircraft manufacturer.
An example in this last category is the MutuallyExclusiveContainer widget that groups multiple elements under a single 61 but only displays one of its immediate children at a time. This solution allows the user to: The objective of the standard is to minimize both direct and indirect costs to the airlines by minimizing the cost of acquiring new avionic systems by controlling the cost stanard CDS development, minimizing the cost of adding new display functions to the cockpit during the life of an aircraft, minimizing the cost standars managing hardware obsolescence in an area of rapidly evolving technology, introducing interactivity into the cockpit, thus providing a basis for airframe manufacturers to standardize the HMI in the cockpit.
Naturally, a display system would not be much without its associated logic which is handled by a separate element called the User Application UA. While cockpit display software has traditionally been written as self-contained executables that present information and render graphics based on internal data, rules, and logic, ARINC introduces a clear separation between the code drawing the ztandard and the code managing the logic and the position and state of all visual elements.
