Great River Technology joins the SOSA consortium

ARINC 818 video protocol is moving forward through Industry

Global leader of ARINC 818 video protocol and 10+ years European partner of TECHWAY, Great River Technology announces its membership with the SOSA (Sensor Open Systems Architecture) consortium, further deepening its industry-wide relationships.

The goal of this membership is to leverage ARINC 818’s proven performances in Avionics applications to integrate other high-speed sensors and components requiring a robust, low-latency, high-bandwidth transport protocol.

As sensor systems increase in number, applications, cost and complexity, users need to address issues such as affordability, versatility and capabilities. Sensor systems should be rapidly reconfigurable and reusable by a greater number of stakeholders.

The SOSA consortium is introducing this culture of re-use by creating modular open system architectures dedicated to military and commercial sensor systems that adjust stakeholder interests. These architectures use widely supported, consensus-based, nonproprietary standards. The SOSA initiative enables enhance and accelerate the deployment of affordable, capable, interoperable sensor systems.

“Originally, ARINC 818 was intended for cockpit displays. In the last few years, we have seen the protocol adopted for cameras, heads-up displays, enhanced vision and degraded environment displays, and now high-speed EOIR and radar applications. The features that make ARINC 818 good for cockpit displays such as robust error checking, low-overhead and low latency, and high bandwidth, along with a proven pedigree with millions of hours in hundreds of aircraft make it ideal for sensors. We are looking forward to working with SOSA and its members to evaluate if ARINC 818 makes sense to be part of the standard.” says Paul Grunwald, Chief Systems Architect at Great River Technology.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

Maxim's First Secure Micro with ChipDNA PUF Technology

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

Most applications today demand security, and that starts with your microcontroller. In order to get a truly secure MCU, you need a root of trust such as a physically unclonable function (PUF). In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis of Maxim Integrated about how the Maxim MAX32520 MCU with PUF can secure your next design.
