The High Speed Stand Alone Module (HS SAM) has long proven itself as an essential tool for ARINC 818 testing. HS SAMView2 software provides flexibility and efficiency. GRT will configure an HS SAM to match your ICD—including a link rate up to 5 Gb/s.
GRT can configure an HS SAM to one of these functions:
ARINC 818 to DVI converter
DVI to ARINC 818 converter with line-spy capability
Both configurations generate test patterns.
An optional software development kit (SDK) empowers designers to quickly integrate equipment into test environments.
Order the features you need for flight testing or work in the lab, aircraft production facility, or simulator. SAM status and link status indicators report system health at a glance. USB 2.0 connectors are standard.
With a versatile GUI, no programming is required to command the powerful features of the HS SAM:
Loading and retrieval of ARINC 818 images and data
Header management: save and restore transmit header data to non-volatile RAM—to be loaded automatically at power-up; read transmit header data from file, edit the data (if desired), and load the data into the SAM
Remote monitoring of the unit and link status
Video source manipulation—for example, test patterns, DVI in, static images
Control of multiple SAMs
This HS SAM has been configured to convert fiber to DVI or VGA. See the ARINC 818 HS SAM datasheet for a diagram of a DVI to fiber configuration.
Software Development Kit
An option with the HS SAM is an easy-to-use ARINC 818 application programming interface (API). Software developers use its API library to quickly creat custom test applications that communicate with the SAM. They can integrate automatic test equipment into the test environments. Full API function documentation and example code are included. No knowledge of the USB layer is required; the API handles all USB communications.
Features and Options
Standard connectors available: fiber optic 1310nm single mode; fiber optic 850nm multimode; FCN copper; High-Speed Coax. Other standard features: USB port (2.0 required), channel health indicators, 24VDC with switching adapter for 100–120VDC @ 50–60 Hz. Optional feature: mounting bracket.
