Which Video Bus? How ARINC 818 Became the Global Standard

Military and civilian aviation systems require high-speed video systems for cockpit displays, head-up displays, infrared and optical sensors, and flight simulators, to name a few. Twenty-first century advances require higher bandwidths and greater flexibility. Certification requirements are strict. One high-speed video protocol addresses this reality: ARINC 818

The 2006 Avionics Digital Video Bus, ARINC 818-1, gained quick adoption in military and commercial programs such as the A400M and B-787. Today, ARINC 818-2 is employed by dozens of aircraft and upgrade programs. This current version defines speeds to 28 Gb/s, giving it room to grow.

“ARINC 818 has become the de-facto standard for highspeed video for avionics systems,” said Tim Keller, COO for Airborne Products for GRT. “ARINC 818 is now the global standard.” GRT has participated in more than 100 ARINC 818 projects worldwide.
