SUNDSVALL, SWEDEN, MARCH 25, 2014 — navAero announces the achievement of obtaining MFI approval from Apple on the navAero Power/Data Interface Module for the company’s iPad Class 2 EFB system.

As an Apple MFi – approved Made For iPad manufacturer – the navAero iPad “Smart” Mount holder can be integrally equipped with the MFI-approved Power/Data Interface module that incorporates the Apple Lightning connector to provide connectivity compatibility for bringing power and data into the iPad.

The navAero iPad EFB System itself consists of a modular, proprietary designed “Smart” Mount tablet holder that securely contains that iPad device and meets all appropriate DO-160 requirements. The holder is provisioned with the navAero Power/Data Interface (PDi) module that converts 28VDC from the aircraft power to power that is appropriate for charging the tablet device. The PDi module also feeds aircraft data (ARINC 429, 717, Discretes) from the navAero Universal Aircraft Interface Device (UAID) to the tablet for use in various software applications along with capability for WiFi and cellular connectivity. The UAID also provides built-in capabilities for QAR functionality.

Simone Giordano, navAero President, stated: “This achievement is testament to the technical expertise and manufacturing excellence that navAero processes. The skills and processes that follow our ISO 9001:2008 quality standards has allowed us to gain Apple MFi on our iPad Power/Data Interface Module and are used in the design and manufacturing of all our products.”

Giordano continued: “navAero is extremely proud of this achievement which clearly shows the technical and manufacturing excellence that is a part of every product we deliver to our customers around the globe.”
