Lod, Israel – November 10, 2020 – Ethernity Networks (AIM: ENET.L), a leading supplier of data processing offload solutions running on programmable hardware and used to accelerate telco/cloud networks, announced today that it has received an initial order from a new tier-1 North American aerospace OEM customer to provide its ENET Avionics Ethernet Switch firmware and software, integrated into Ethernity’s FPGA-based Universal Edge Platform (UEP) device.
The order represents the customer’s selection of Ethernity’s Avionics Ethernet Switch for its initial offering, and pending the customer’s successful program execution, could lead to a significant expansion and further orders during 2021, which would include certification of Ethernity’s ENET Avionics Ethernet Switch for critical avionics operation.
Ethernity first delivered its Avionics Ethernet Switch and end system six years ago for a project with an Israeli defense company. Subsequently, Ethernity signed a new Avionics Ethernet Switch contract in November 2018 with a tier-1 North American aerospace contractor, with whom discussions continue to progress regarding new projects. The new order brings on board a second tier-1 North American aerospace OEM.
“With the addition of a second tier-1 aerospace OEM customer, we have confirmation that our Avionics switch solution is a valuable asset within the military aerospace market,” said David Levi, Ethernity’s CEO. “It shows that Ethernity’s FPGA-based offerings are attractive to a diverse range of applications and industries, and we expect 2021 to reflect the market’s growing awareness of the advantages Ethernity brings.”
Ethernity’s ENET Avionics Switch solution offers a specialized FPGA-based Ethernet switch with an optimized feature set to support the special reliability and safety requirements of the avionics industry. The next-generation aircraft data network addresses real-time flight issues by reacting to constant changes in conditions detected through sensors and communicated via specifically defined embedded systems and switches using deterministic Ethernet. The company’s Avionics Switch solution provides full support for the ARINC 664 Avionics Switched Ethernet network specification.
