TECHWAY (France) & Great River Technology (USA) have joined forces to offer a wide range of ARINC 818 switches designed to simplify multi-destination and multi-source architectures.

The ARINC 818 switches are built on the FPGA technology associated with optical interfaces with very high density. All the switches ensure that video frames remain intact and void of corruption during switching.

These solutions are ICD independent. The link rate and virtualization configuration are set at the order.

These switches are used on major aircraft equipment programs.



  • Link rate available : 1.0625, 2.125, 3.1875 or 4.25 Gbps (others on demand)

  • Optional test pattern (on demand)

  • Power supply (120/240V) and DC (48V and 28V)

  • LC optical connectors (850nm)

  • Real-time link monitoring and error counter

  • Embedded Web server for Cmd/Ctrl

  • Low-latency switching

  • Unicast, multicast and broadcast

  • Operating temperature range :

    • Commercial : 0°C to 50°C

    • Rugged : -15°C to 70°C

  • Storage temperature range : -55°C to 125°C

  • CE mark

  • DO160-F compliant

  • Web or SNMP control interfaces
