A new generation of frame grabbers, video generators, and converters enables ARINC 818 systems to utilize ultra-resolution graphics such as 4K. Link speeds beyond 8 Gb/s and Generation 3 PCIe transfer rates greater than 4 GB/s accelerate your design possibilities.

Velocity Plus ARINC 818 Card



Velocity is a full-featured, high speed ARINC 818 frame grabber, graphics generator and video converter. It comes with a powerful test application. Optional SDK is available for purchase.

Support link rates up to 10.0Gbps

Factory configured for 1-15 ICDs.

SDK - An optional Windows- or Linux-based Software Development Kit (SDK) enables faster development of real-time image and data acquisition systems, camera and sensor emulators, video generators, or other video-intensive applications. The SDK includes a user guide, sample code, and four hours of technical support.

ARINC 818 Receiver & Converter

Velocity cards can capture ARINC 818 video to the software GUI and permit real-time viewing of embedded ARINC 818 data. The cards have a dedicated HDMI 2.0 video port to view the incoming ARINC 818 video on a monitor.
