A2B critical environment standards

whether A2B interface supports balanced lines for Digital audio communication?
• Can we use A2B for Aircraft environment to communicate digital audio?
• Can i replace it as a Digital audio like AES3 balanced?

    Hi ,

    A2b is predominantly designed for automotive and consumer audio applications. Hence, the max junction temperature of A2B devices should not exceed 125 deg C and A2B devices are only compliant to ASIL QM standard and do not comply to DO standard if required.  A2B transceiver converts TDM inputs to LVDS format and sends it over a distance of up to 15m between nodes.This can't be directly interfaced with AES balanced line.
