ARINC 818

Frame Grabber, Video Generator

Velocity, Matrix Plus, and Matrix cards enable engineers to bring higher resolution formats to ARINC 818 video. The arrival of Velocity brings link rates to 12.75 gigabits per second (Gb/s) and throughput to 4 gigabytes per second (GB/s), enabling ulta-resolution graphics as never before. For example:

Every card includes test application software to configure and diagnose the health of ARINC 818 systems.

Frame grabber

Configure an ARINC 818 card to transmit video and, at other times, to receive video. Each card has a dedicated output port for viewing full-motion video from fiber or coax without loading the bus. The cards capture video and header information over the PCI/PCIe bus up to the throughput limits of the cards.

GRT's flexible video generators have the capability to:

Converter

GRT cards are full-motion video transmitter products. Use them to convert:

For module or system converters, see our Stand Alone Module, ruggedized Video Converter Module, and Systems and Recorders.

LAD

Our large area display (LAD) card can drive left/right links, while a separate ARINC 818 link for data only feeds back touchsreen coordinates. These and other innovations by GRT became new standards in ARINC Specification 818-2.

Complete SDK for applications development

A Windows-based Software Development Kit (SDK) affords quick deployment of real-time image and data acquisition systems, camera and sensor emulators, video generators, or other video-intensive applications. The SDK includes a user guide, sample code, and four hours of technical support.

For those using LabVIEW™ to develop systems with Matrix cards, we also offer an SDK with sample and functional code that can be quickly customized.
