ARINC 818 Switch IP Core

ARINC 818 Switch IP Core

ARINC 818-2 is a point-to-point, serial protocol, high bandwidth, low latency protocol for the transmission of uncompressed video, audio, and data during blanking period, widely used in AVIONICS application. Since a vast portion of the newer applications of the ARINC 818-2 have several displays with many channels of ARINC 818-2, switching has turned out to be more imperative. ARINC 818-2 switch can support up to 12 channels. Multiple switching modes such as broadcast, unicast, multicast, and mixed are also supported.
