Development suite for ARINC 818 installations

Great River Technology's suite of tools for ARINC 818 (avionics digital video bus protocol) projects enables designers to design and implement system-critical video and data transmission products into cockpit displays, avionics graphics generators, infrared cameras and sensors.

Great River Technology's suite of tools for ARINC 818 (avionics digital video bus protocol) projects enables designers to design and implement system-critical video and data transmission products into cockpit displays, avionics graphics generators, infrared cameras and sensors, and flight simulators.

One piece of the tool set is the graphics boards and DVI converters: The tool suite's various graphics generators can be used in the development, test, and function phase; while the full-motion ARINC 818 DVI converters convert live DVI video to ARINC 818 and back again. Another part is the video and protocol analyzer, which allows designers and users an overview at multiple levels: byte, FC frame, video line, and video frame.

The frame grabbers are preconfigured for link speeds between 1 Gbps and 4 Gbps, with a dedicated video port for viewing full-motion video without loading the bus. Additionally, an ARINC 818 transceiver IP core is available for designers who want accelerated development time and additional flexibility.

Great River also offers as part of the tool suite video record and playback systems, which are configurable for synchronized ARINC 818 video playout to a cockpit display or simulator; and a variety of switches, which offers designers control over switching and real-time switch-input monitoring.
