Applications of ARINC 818 in Avionics Video Systems 2009-01-3141
ARINC 818, titled Avionics Digital Video Bus (ADVB), is a video protocol standard for high-bandwidth, low-latency, critical video systems. Since its introduction three years ago, many commercial and military aerospace programs have adopted the protocol, including the 787, A400M, and the A350XWB. A description of the protocol and its technical benefits is provided followed by an overview of how it is used in various systems, such as: infrared and optical sensors, map/chart systems, synthetic vision, HUDs, MFDs, video concentrators, and other subsystems. Future uses of the protocol are also explored.
