1 Introduction The first major impetus for use of electronics in aviation occurred during World War II. Communications were maturing and the development of airborne radar using the magnetron, thermionic valve and associated technologies occurred at a furious pace throughout the conflict. Transistors followed in the late 1950s and 1960s and supplanted thermionic valves for many applications. The improved cost-effectiveness of transistors led to the development of early avionics systems throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

The advantages to be realised by this level of integration are: • • • • • volume, weight and maintenance savings; sharing of resources, such as power supplies, across a number of functional modules; standard module designs yielding a more unified approach to equipment design; incremental certification of hardware and application software; management of obsolescence. Chapter 5 provides a full discussion on avionics systems architectures. 1 11 Avionics Computing The Nature of an Avionics Computer An avionics computer is a task-oriented computer or an embedded system.

Partial implementations existed on earlier aircraft. IMA principles introduce a common, open-architecture approach to computing hardware to provide a computationally rich resource platform on which avionics systems application software is executed. A real-time operating system manages the computational resource allocation and ensures system partitioning and segregation. Provision and certification of the hardware and software are independent. A high bandwidth communications network transports information between the computational and input/output (I/O) resources, the latter being implemented in remote data concentrators (RDCs) local to aircraft sensors and effectors.
