ARINC-818 IP Core

The New Wave Design and Verification (New Wave DV) ARINC-818 core provides a complete hardware IP solution for the ARINC-818 protocol.

The core provides full specification compliance, hardware-based container processing, and offload of frame handling including: ARINC-818 Container offload, hardware-based Object processing, DMA controller, frame building/checking, and CRC generation/checking.

The host interface to the core can be AXI or PCIe. The core is built for dropping into a FPGA and providing the complete design from processor interface to ARINC-818 network interface.

This core is targeted towards applications in aerospace and has been used on a wide range of parts at varying operating rates. The core comes with test-benches and example code, making design integration a straightforward task.

Evaluation versions of the ARINC-818 IP core are available and New Wave DV has a set of standard form-factor boards featuring FPGAs, optics, and off-the-shelf reference designs for quick evaluation of the IP core.
