ADIRS Arduino LCD Display Interfacing

Peter Fuss has informed me of a program which simplifies interfacing an Arduino display with Jeehell FMGS. The software by Peter Piper is designed to be used to simulate the ADIRS display panel by reading the data and sys  switch from the avionics overhead panel and outputting appropriately. More information available on the FlightX forum … Continue reading

Output Amplifier Load Testing

Initial load testing of the Output Amplifier DMOS transistors indicates an acceptable temperature of 35 ° C after 15 minutes when each transistors are running at maximum throughput (8 outputs for each array, approximately 1.6 amps if outputting to an aircraft panel operating at 5V). You would never run all outputs in the all on … Continue reading

Most korry switches on an Airbus cockpit panel run on incandescent bulbs. Each bulb is rated at 0.115 amps. An Airbus korry usually has 4 bulbs in total, with 1 bulb in each quadrant. The upper quadrants will require at least 0.23 amps to function. Unfortunately existing interface solutions are unable to supply the current … Continue reading
