ARINC 600 Working Group Meeting Report. Meeting held December 3, 2020, online meeting.
The ARINC 600 Working Group met to initiate the development of the following ARINC Standard:
Supplement 21 to ARINC Specification 600: Air Transport Avionics Equipment Interfaces per APIM 20-002
The group reviewed inputs from Airbus intended for inclusion in Draft 1 of Supplement 21 to ARINC Specification 600. The new text from Airbus proposes adding a Size 4 Plug and Receptacle (Size 3 plus a Size 1) to ARINC Specification 600.
Airbus indicated they already have an application for this connector, and they have published a Request For Proposal (RFP) to industry. At least three connector manufacturers are actively working on this new connector.
The document is expected to be mature in early 2023.
The ARINC 600 Working Group will meet again on January 21, 2021. Details for future meetings will be available here:
