NI PXIe-6592 ARINC 818 Test Solution

The New Wave DV ARINC 818 test instrument provides a complete hardware and LabVIEW software solution for the ARINC 818 protocol. The ARINC 818 hardware instrument provides full specification compliance, hardware-based container processing, and offload of frame handling including: ARINC 818 Container offload, hardware-based Video Object processing, DMA controller, frame building/checking, CRC generation/checking, error injection/checking, and frame rate configuration.

The hardware is fully integrated with the LabVIEW test stand, allowing users to focus on test-case development instead of protocol development. Included is a fully functional example GUI to setup, control, and status-check the four ARINC 818 ports. The GUI and LabVIEW software is user-modifiable, allowing customization for your unique applications. Demonstrations and evaluations of the ARINC 818 instrument are available.
