Avionics is an awfully broad topic, but it appears that Honeywell and Rockwell Collins are two major suppliers of avionics that appear in the aircraft that you list - well at least Boeing - can't speak for Airbus as I really don't know.
edit: Actually there's a good slideshow talking about the A380 FMS on the Honeywell site - kind of neat (new to me anyway old news to all of you guys) and different from the traditional interface with the FMS

I guess I'm looking for who makes the majority of the components for each aircraft type.
As examples, I think the CRJ 700 is mostly Collins Pro Line (4000?), and I think the Embraer 170/190 is Honeywell's Primus Epic 1000.
Who manufactures the Navigation and Autopilots for the above planes?
