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.

You can try searching in these links for some of your answers:
https://www.honeywellaes.com/at (click on Platforms to select the aircraft)
http://www.rockwellcollins.com/ecat/at/Air_Transport_bu.html?smenu=0 (click on Platform here too)

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

'Avionics' comprises every computer and controller in the avionics bay. You could be looking weeks to name all the different suppliers. Any systems in particular?

Thales is a big Airbus supplier for avionics equipment.

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?

Thanks
