Arria 10 FPGAs enable Silkan to meet Ethernet IEEE802.3 standards with a one-chip programmable platform, and to achieve new levels of performance, and improve connectivity safety and reliability, while offering a lower cost of ownership. CETRAC switches can also support non-critical applications needed in flight, offering guaranteed data integrity and low latency.
CETRAC is also provided as an IP core and is embeddable in Line-Replaceable Unit (LRU), which is a modular component on an airplane, ship or spacecraft. CETRAC offers full retro-compatibility with the company’s Arion100 product, an integrated, industrial, and real-time environment providing complete virtualization for a system.
“Our customers in avionics and the military demand systems that provide ever-increasing performance enabling safe and secure communication, and Arria 10 FPGAs enable our systems to meet the high safety standards required in avionics, with a low cost of ownership,” said Jean-Pierre Carsalade, vice president, sales and marketing, Silkan. “With CETRAC, we will be well-positioned to offer our customers best-in-class innovation in the field of Ethernet interconnection technology for critical systems.”
“We are pleased that Arria 10 FPGAs have enabled Silkan to enhance CETRAC’s performance, and can do so with a one-chip platform, which offers a reduced footprint,” said Ian Land, senior manager, Military, Aerospace and Government (MAG) business unit at Altera. “Demand for Arria 10 FPGA and SoCs has ramped up faster than any product in Altera’s history, and is now delivering the kinds of performance Silkan can demonstrate in its CETRAC real-time high-speed Ethernet interconnection technology.”
