ARINC 818 digital test and simulation products for avionics designers introduced by AIM-USA

Posted by John Keller

TREVOSE, Pa., 14 Aug. 2013. Avionics databus specialist AIM-USA in Trevose, Pa., is introducing a family of ARINC 818 digital test and simulation products to aid avionics display developers and aircraft integrators perform testing and verification on such links on ARINC 818 data links, which are a defacto standard for avionics digital video links and data transmission.

AIM's ARINC 818 test products are designed around the APE-FC-2 PCI Express Fibre Channel Interface offering data rates as fast as 1 gigabit Fibre Channel (GFC).

"Later this year AIM will have the APS-FC-2 (PCI Express) card which supports data rates up to 4GFC and is fully software compatible with the APE-FC-2 card," says Marco Maier, ARINC 818 program manager at AIM-GmbH in Freiburg Germany.

"Both support single or sequential pictures which can be sent in single shot or cyclic mode with software configurable refresh rates," Maier says. "Picture data can be changed or reloaded on-the-fly maintaining picture data integrity with the configured refresh rates on the ARINC 818 link."

AIM's ARINC 818 interface boards support the import of picture data in a Windows BMP/DIB format for transmission by the software API interface. The boards also offer the Tap Mode, which allows users to break into an existing connection between a generator and a display, to tap-out the ARINC 818 data with no interference of the traffic.

The Driver Software and Application Programming Interface (API) are bundled in the module price and are compatible with WindowsXP/Vista/7/8 and Linux. This includes ARINC 818 transmitter and receiver functions.

AIM's optional PBA.pro databus test & analysis software with the ARINC 818 upper layer protocol option provides a simple-to-use and interactive GUI, which can -be controlled, customized, and automated using Python Scripting support.

The scalability of the PBA.pro means provisions for pure ARINC 818 based test, simulation and analysis solutions (including all FC Layer 2 capabilities) right up to a heterogeneous avionics databus test system with a seamless integrated ARINC 818 capability.
