ARINC 818 Switches

ARINC 818 video switching in real-time

TECHWAY (France) & Great River Technology (USA) have join forces to offer a wide range of ARINC 818 switches designed to simplify multi-destination and multi-source architectures.

The ARINC 818 switches are built on the FPGA technology associated with optical interfaces with very high density. All the switches ensure that video frames remain intact and void of corruption during switching.

These solutions are ICD independent. The link rate and virtualization configuration are set at the order.

These switches are used on major aircraft equipment programs.
