New ARINC 818 frame grabber up to 10 Gbps

Define and implement your own ICDs in no time

Great River Technology, the ARINC 818 video protocol global leader, has announced its new PCIe frame grabber, the Velocity XI. Its 3-in-1 functions allow it to both receive and transmit ARINC 818 video streams at rates up to 10 Gbps, and convert these streams to HDMI. Developed from its predecessor, it has the same hardware capabilities as the Velocity and allows the user to implement any ICD (Interface Control Document) directly in the field.

As a technological breakthrough for the mil-aero industry, the Velocity XI gives user the capability to create and save his own library of different ICDs. Then, the user can implement a new ARINC 818 ICD into hardware in less than a minute using the Velocity XI Configuration Tool.

The configuration tool provides an easy to use and user-friendly entry page for ICD video parameters. Once all the ICD parameters are properly entered by the user, the tool calculates the necessary settings for the hardware and allows the user to load the new ICD into the card.

The Velocity XI card offers link speeds up to 10 Gbps and PCIe Gen3 x8 transfer rates greater than 4 Gbps for real-time viewing of embedded ARINC 818 data.

Evaluation and Development Kits

Sponsored by Samtec

With signal integrity becoming increasingly challenging in today’s designs, interconnect is taking on a key role. In order to see how a particular interconnect solution will perform in our design, we really need hands-on evaluation of the technology. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matthew Burns of Samtec about evaluation and development kits for high-speed interconnect solutions.
