Suite offers flexible video, data configurations

The HOTLink II suite of products from Great River Technology can set up military and civilian aerospace designers with flexible tools for point-to-point uncompressed digital video transmission.

The HOTLink II suite of products from Great River Technology can set up military and civilian aerospace designers with flexible tools for point-to-point uncompressed digital video transmission. One component is the frame grabber and camera-emulator video card, which comes in five form factors that support video formats at data rates from 160 Mb/s to 1.5 Gb/s. It is aimed at IR sensor development and flight testing. The suite’s HOTLink II data cards are an off-the-shelf solution for high-speed point-to-point data transfer using HOTLink II Fibre Channel. The video record and playback systems enables users to configure the system to play back to a GUI or play out through the hardware, creating synchronized HOTLink II video playout to cockpit displays or simulators.

Also available is a serial link analyzer, which uses PCI 64-bit/66-MHz technology to capture and analyze raw Hotlink II data, while the device’s HL2View software analyzes and debugs the HOTLink II interfaces. Users also can choose the HOTLink II video card in five form factors, supporting a range of video formats at data rates from 160 Mb/s to 1.5 Gb/s. A portable, standalone software module dubbed the HS SAMView II can handle ARINC 818 testing. Great River’s optional software-development kit (SDK) enables designers to integrate HOTLink II equipment into test environments.
