Testing, Simulating, and Validating ARINC 818 Interfaces by Paul Grunwald.
Matrix Plus (PCIe8) and Matrix (PCIe4, XMC) cards both transmit and receive ARINC 818 video at data rates up to 4 Gb/s with a bus throughput of 500 MB/s. Matrix cards are pre-configured for the video parameters of your ICD. Matrix Plus cards are pre-configured for 1 to 15 ICDs.
Every card in both series includes test application software.
The cards have a dedicated DVI output for viewing full-motion video (received from fiber or coax) without loading the PCIe bus.
Configure an ARINC 818 card to transmit video and, at other times, to receive video. Each card has a dedicated DVI or VGA 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:
Matrix cards are full-motion video transmitter products. Use them to convert:
All Matrix cards include a DVI output, unless a DVI input has been specifically ordered, in which case the card will have DVI input and VGA output.
Our Matrix 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 Matrix innovations by GRT became new standards in ARINC Specification 818-2.
A Windows- or Linux-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.
