Velocity

Velocity series is a new generation of frame grabbers enables ARINC 818 systems to utilize ultra-resolution graphics such as 4K. Link speeds beyond 8 Gbps and PCIe Gen3 transfer rates greater than 4 Gbps.
Velocity adds the power of PCIe Gen3 x8 interface coupled with two high-speed DDR3 memory banks. All the while, it retains features pioneered for Matrix Plus Series boards. A single Velocity card can be configured for up to 15 ICDs. Each mode matches one ICD : link speed, image resolution, and pixel format.
Velocity boards can support 3 ARINC 818 functions : receiver, transmitter and converter.

ARINC 818 protocol

ARINC 818: Avionics digital video bus

The ARINC 818 video interface and protocol standard serves high-bandwidth, low-latency, uncompressed digital video transmission.

The standard has been advanced by ARINC and the aerospace community to meet the stringent needs of high-performance digital video. The protocol was adopted, prior to its official release, by major aerospace and military programs, and has become the de facto standard for high-performance military video systems.
