In aviation technology, components and even systems are traditionally designed hierarchically ac-cording to the principle “one function = one component”. A continuously increasing range of func-tions, which has to be implemented today, in particular to increase passenger comfort in the cabin, without at the same time disproportionately increasing the volume and, even more important, the mass of the components, calls for new concepts. As part of the research project “Bauteil 4.0”, a design concept for a highly integrated and functionalized lightweight components in the aircraft cabin was developed. For this concept, a test vehicle for such lightweight components was de-signed and, in a first step, a simple energy and data supply function was considered. The design and interconnection technology for the electronics was developed closely to industrial standards, taking into account that this electronics module has to be integrated into the lightweight assembly. A test principle was developed and implemented to evaluate the reliability and safety of the lightweight components as a whole, but also with a focus on the electronics. These tests were modeled and simulated with the help of the finite element method (FEM) so that the behavior of lightweight assemblies with integrated electronics can be judged by virtual testing.
