ARINC Specification 628 Part 4 defines standards for the aircraft IFE Cabin Distribution System (CDS) wiring, connectors, power, identification codes, space envelopes and mounting principles. The equipment itself is not a subject of this specification because it may be unique to the system manufacturer or market place driven. Design guidelines are included for informational purposes as these guidelines impact the interfaces and installation of cabin equipment aboard the aircraft. The CDS, in daisy chain architecture, is the content of both Parts 4A and 4C of ARINC Specification 628. Part 4C presents the second generation also known as 2GCN of the daisy chain topology, as an evolution based on the experience gained with the first version of the CDS. The main difference is that the system in Part 4C is divided into two separated networks, one for data, connected to the CEC, and the other one for power, connected to the Aircraft Power Supply. The second generation of the CDS was mainly introduced because of the need for more bandwidth (via quad-cables) and a newer version of the MCU, which allows for greater control over power distribution. Fiber-optic cables are not defined, because the new quad-cables were deemed more than sufficient for the expected bandwidths.

Industry rules and guidelines support/mandate equivalency, but provide very little guidance on how to realize MPP substitution. Currently, industry guidelines fail to provide adequate direction to maintenance facilities for material, process, and part equivalencies. Suitable substantiation procedures to be able to select alternate materials are demanded by the air transport industry. The purpose of ARINC Report 670 is to provide clear definitions for materials, processes, parts, substantiation requirements, decision boundaries and limitations, and a standard process for equivalency determination. This report is intended as general guidance for avionics maintenance facilities; however, this does not preclude its use for other sectors of aircraft maintenance as appropriate.

ARINC Report 673 Guidance for the Use of UHF Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

With the emergence of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) as a tool to streamline the supply chain, the airline industry determined that a technology standard for both the RFID tag hardware and data needed to be developed. This is required so that industry-wide interoperability can be achieved. Fundamental requirements have been identified and agreed upon by the airline industry. These core requirements build the framework from which this standard was derived. The usage of an open standard UHF-RFID technology will benefit the entire airline industry. While the intent of this document is to address the usage of UHF-RFID tags on aircraft parts, the technology and benefits are applicable to other items that would be in airline inventory. To that extent, the term Product has been used in this standard.

ARINC Standards 801-3 Fiber Optic Connectors

ARINC Specification 801 is intended to provide standardization of a fiber optic interconnect assembly, which is composed of a connector, fiber optic cable, and fiber optic termini for the air transport industry. The goal is to avoid the proliferation of different designs of connectors to serve the same functions on different aircraft models. This specification defines generic fiber optic connectors needed for commercial aircraft. The connector family is based around a standard terminus (fiber optic contact) design and associated cavity, which is used in all of the connector styles and arrangements. The standard terminus comes in variants for different cable types. All termini will fit the same cavities in the connectors and are intended to be interchangeable.

ARINC Standards 844P1 Guidance for Target Hardware Design, Part 1, Airborne High Speed Data Loader (ARINC Report 615-3)

ARINC Specification 844, prepared in two parts, defines the requirements of a Target Data Loader (TDL) from the target hardware “point of view.” Both parts are based on two data loading standards: Part 1 clarifies ARINC Report 615-3: Airborne Computer High Speed Data Loader, Part 2 clarifies ARINC Report 615-4: Airborne Computer High Speed Data Loader. ARINC Report 615 was originally written from the data loader “point of view.” It is important that a target designer have a general understanding of the operation of a data loader in its modern implementation. Equally important is the need for data loader manufacturers to understand the standardized implementation requirements and supported subset of ARINC 615 features that are defined in ARINC 844, Parts 1 and 2. Therefore, ARINC Specification 844 is expected to provide value to both data loader and target implementers. The referenced standardized implementation requirements and supported subset of features defined in ARINC 844, Parts 1 and 2 provide the blueprint for data loader implementations. This standard also requires the use of ARINC Report 665 Supplement 2 or later, or ARINC Specification 838 formatted loadable software parts. ARINC Report 615-3 represents the majority of data loaders used in air transport data loading operations. ARINC Report 615-4 added some features and changed others that were found in ARINC Report 615-3. Although these two supplements of the ARINC Report 615 are very similar, they are, in essence, two separate standards. Therefore, ARINC Project Paper 844 is written in two parts to allow the reader to easily reference between the two ARINC 615 standards. ARINC Specification 844, Parts 1 and 2, is applicable to a specific supplement to ARINC Report 615. This standard requires the use of ARINC Report 665-2 or later, or ARINC Specification 838 formatted loadable software parts. The guidance found in: ARINC Specification 844, Part 1, is applicable to: ARINC Report 615-3. The guidance found in: ARINC Specification 844, Part 2, is applicable to: ARINC Report 615-4.

ARINC Standards ARINC Report 847 Product Development Guidance for Maintainability and Testability (PDMaT)

ARINC Report 847: Product Development Guidance for Maintainability and Testability (PDMaT) is intended to be used as guidance to enhance the design of avionic equipment, with a focus on maintainability and testability characteristics. It is a separate and parallel standard to ARINC Report 607: Design Guidance for Avionic Equipment. This document does not represent the complete formula for successfully designing and manufacturing avionics equipment or system. It does present the vision of the airline community based on extensive experience gained through the use of such equipment. It is intended to provide information that would be useful in devising the necessary foundation to develop superior products through design philosophy as well as recommended practices in the design and conception of systems that should be beneficial not only to the equipment manufacturer designing avionic equipment, but also for the airframe manufacturers in incorporating avionic equipment into aircraft systems.

ARINC Standards Embedded Interchange Format For Airport Mapping Database

This document defines an open encoding format for airport databases which are loaded in airborne systems. This format, when designed and implemented, will enable a quick, economic, and efficient use of AMDB. However, since industry does not require applications to be standardized, data interpretation is not addressed in this document.
