ARINC 818 cards enabling ultra high-bandwidth video systems are here.
Velocity is a new generation frame grabber, video generator, and converter capable of link rates to 12.75 gigabits per second (Gb/s). It can be factory configured for 4K and other high-resolution ICDs, for example: UHD (2160p at 30Hz) over an 8.5 Gb/s link; 2560x1080 at 120Hz over a 12.75 Gb/s link; or 1920x1080 at 180Hz over a 12.75 Gb/s link. Velocity can convert ARINC 818 in real time to or from HDMI 2.0 to simplify testing with off-the-shelf display hardware.
Velocity adds the power of a PCIe Gen 3 x8 interface coupled with two high-speed DDR3 memory banks. As with Matrix Plus cards, GRT can factory configure a single Velocity card for up to 15 ICDs.
