The CNIC platform is a high performance, PMC module for the AFDX / ARINC 664 protocol. With two independent ports for traffic monitoring, traffic generation, external triggering and analysis, the CNIC provides high-resolution time-tagging of incoming packets simultaneously with highly accurate traffic generation. An IRIG-B receiver/generator is included for synchronization to an external IRIG-B time source and for synchronization between multiple CNIC boards. Our exclusive pipeline architecture avoids the local bottlenecks of CPU-based interface solutions, and significantly outperforms standard NIC cards. The interface can be easily configured as either one dual-redundant AFDX / ARINC 664 port, or two high performance, independent ports. Simultaneous, real time traffic generation on both ports is highly accurate. Input and output triggers are provided, errors are detected or can be injected, while extensive link and protocol-level statistics are available for analysis. Programs have complete access to all frame and header data, can easily wrap data and perform extensive BIT testing. Each incoming packet is tagged with a 20 nsec resolution, 64-bit time-tag.
