Officially released in 2007, ARINC 818 is a point-to-point, 8b/10b encoded serial protocol that has gained widespread industry support. Also known as ARINC 818: Avionics Digital Video Bus (ADVB), this protocol is a standard for high-bandwidth, low-latency digital video in mission-critical avionics. While Fibre Channel Audio Video protocol (FC-AV) is meant to support a wide range of industries, avionics vendors recognized the need for a unified standard specific to aeronautics applications. By building off of the FC-AV framework and eliminating many of the complexities, such as the need for link initialization or flow control, the ARINC 818 protocol of today provides a point-to-point communications link for video and defines an industry-standard packet structure for video transmission in avionics.
