ARINC 818 Becomes New Protocol Standard

As the ARINC 818 avionics digital video bus is adopted by military programs, graphics and video system designers need to understand the protocol, implementation issues and available development tools.

The ARINC 818 video interface and protocol standard was developed for high-bandwidth, low-latency, uncompressed digital video transmission. The standard, which is due to be released in January 2007, has been advanced by ARINC and the aerospace community to meet the stringent needs of high-performance digital video. Even before its release, the protocol has already been adopted by two major aerospace programs, the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A400M, and is poised to become the de facto standard for high-performance military video systems.
