SAM G3 Plus is a portable converter module that converts ARINC 818 to/from HDMI, therefore allowing you to view ARINC 818 video on a standard computer monitor, or transfer live video from a graphics card onto ARINC 818.
The SAM G3 Plus can support up to 15 video formats that are easily selectable via a touch screen on the unit. Loaded formats can be of different conversion directions (ARINC 818 to/from HDMI) and can be of different ARINC 818 link rates, video resolutions, and pixel types. The SAM G3 Plus supports ARINC 818 link rates up to 10 Gbps.
The intuitive touch screen provides an easy determination of the input video status and allows for basic control of the unit – selecting video formats, turning on an internal test pattern, etc.
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.
