Reduced SWaP

Reduced costs

Reduced complexity

When size, weight, and power (SWaP) are issues in your design, ARLX provides a unique path to meeting these goals. Our certification artifacts provide a head-start for certifying your system for flight or marketability for safety and security applications. Consolidating hardware resources on a common computing platform reduces the need to maintain legacy systems.

Xen-based hypervisor, ARINC 653 extensions

ARLX is currently the only hypervisor product, commercial or open-source, that has both security and safety in one product.

  • Based on open-source Xen hypervisor technology, a type 1 hypervisor running directly on the hardware
  • Strict ARINC 653 partitioning, with privileged partitions for initialization and configuration, health monitoring, and I/O control
  • Your applications run unchanged in protected guest partitions
  • Linux and microOS currently supported in guest partitions; future support for VxWorks, Windows, and more
  • Support for controlled I/O sharing with RS-232/422/485, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, ARINC 664p7, CAN, and more
  • Supports open industry standards including ARINC 653, POSIX, VICTORY, and FACE
  • Safety assurance: DO-178C, IEC 62304, ISO 26262 certification packages at the highest levels of design assurance and safety integrity
  • Security assurance: MILS EAL conformance using formal methods
  • Support tools available include: Traceability analyzer, Difference Impact analyzer, System Configurator, and more
  • Available for x86 and ARM targets
  • Demonstration available for PC on a USB flash drive
