ARINC 818 Video Protocol Analyser

ARINC 818 Video Protocol Analyser

iWave’s ARINC 818 Video Protocol Analyzer (VPA) instantly verifies the ADVB Packets against ARINC818 Standards. ARINC VPA software efficiently capture, decodes the ADVB data and display the data to Host PC via PCIe.


    • Compliant with ARINC818 Standard
    • Capture data of 2MB
    • Supports FC 1x, FC 2x, FC 3x and FC 4x rates
    • Transmission Medium: Optical Fiber or Copper
    • Supports any video resolution up to Full HD resolution in a progressive format
    • Kintex-7 FPGA based board used to receive and transmit the ADVB via SFP module
    • Incoming ADVB frames are tapped and captured by FPGA Logic for analysis
    • Captured ADVB frames transmitted to Host PC via PCIe port (x4 Gen2)
  • ARINC818 VPA Card

    • FPGA: Kintex 7
      • Video Input: x1 HDMI up to Full HD @60fps
      • Video Output: x1 HDMI up to Full HD @60fps
      • Optical SFP Connectors: 2
      • Linux Host:
        • Dell Optilex 3050MT or equivalent
        • RAM: 4GB
        • HDD: 1TB
        • OS: 64-Bit Linux Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
      • Commercial Grade Operation







  • GUI Application Features

    • GUI Application running on Host PC to read the captured ADVB samples, decode & display
      • Trigger Modes: Immediate, Trigger On-Error & Order Set (IDLE, SOFi, SOFn, EOFn, EOFt)
      • Frame and Line information: Resolution (W x H), Refresh Rate and Color Format
      • Captured ADVB RAW data will be displayed FC frame by FC frame. Each FC frame will be having the parameters like Word Offset, Time Stamp, B0 (MSB) to B3 (LSB) bytes, Data Field and Status
      • Frame Container details like FC Frame Header, Container Header & Object 0 Ancillary Data
      • Container Statistics: Container Size in bytes, Total FC Frames, FC Frame 0 Size in bytes, FC Frame 1 – N size in bytes, SOFi Count, SOFn Count, EOFn Count, EOFt Count
      • Analyzing different error status: CRC, Payload, Sync Loss, Frame Loss Error for the individual captured FC frames
      • Link Status:
        • Order Set Detect Status: IDLE, SOFi, SOFn, EOFn, EOFt
        • Error Status: CRC Error, Disparity error, Out of Sync error, Payload error
        • Optical Link Status
      • ADVB Video Data Capture:
        • Capture the incoming one video frame and display the captured image on GUI
        • Capture Image can be saved on the Local Folder
      • ARINC818 TX:
        • Loopback ADVB data from ARINC818 RX to ARINC818 TX
        • Internal Test Patterns to ARINC818 TX
      • Saving and Loading captured ADVB RAW data samples:
        • Captured Raw Data can be saved to a binary file (.iwacap)
        • Captured samples can be loaded from a previously-saved file for further offline analysis


  • iWave’s ARINC Video Protocol Analyzer verifies the ADVB Packets against ARINC 818 Standard
  • GUI application running on Linux PC will display the captured sample data for deep analysis
  • Supports FC 1x, FC 2x, FC 3x and FC 4x rates
  • Enables to store the captured data in a file for offline ADVB frame analysis
