Industrial Electronic Engineers, IEE, manufacturer of rugged displays for military applications, will be presenting their product lineup at the Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit (Quad A) in Nashville, Tennessee, April 14-16th. IEE is highlighting displays designed for rotary and fixed wing airborne applications with proven interface capabilities. IEE will feature both the 4.3-inch and 3.5-inch CDUs as cost-effective solutions that are easily integrated into airborne applications.
IEEs products focus on supporting Open System Architecture (OSA) through a suite of communication interfaces and video processing capabilities, commented Steve Motter, V.P. of Business Development for IEE. This includes everything from traditional avionics busses, to ARINC 818, to Ethernet based video distribution architectures such as ARINC 661.
OSA allows for interoperability through the use of standard interfaces. Implemented with controlled Linux OS releases and board support software, this family of CDUs supports a wide range of Avionics architecture applications. Ease of installation is supported by standard Dzus rail mounts and mil-spec I/O connectors.
The 4.3″ Control Display Unit (CDU) can be used in a variety of applications for air or ground vehicles. Typical applications include control of radio communications and configuration of aircraft systems. This smart display utilizes an Intel Atom E3825 dual core processor, and operates under a wide range of lighting conditions from full dark (NVIS) to bright sunlight. The assembly consists of a Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) with a 4.3″ diagonal viewing screen and a QWVGA (480×272) pixel resolution. The rugged aluminum chassis is painted black with white nomenclature.
4.3 CDU Display Features:
- 4.3 Transmissive AMLCD, 480 x 272 (QWVGA)
- Brightness: NVIS to >1200 cd/m2
- Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 (native)
- Dual Core Intel Atom E3825 processor (1.33 GHz)
- 2GB DDR3 SDRAM, 8GB SD Flash
- ARINC-661 over Gigabit Ethernet
- Controls: 5 sealed push-buttons, 2 rocker switches
- Power Input: 28VDC per MIL-STD-704F
- Operating Temperature: -40ºC to +71ºC continuous
IEE will also feature a 3.5″ Aircraft Control Display Unit (CDU) designed for helicopter avionics. Applied beyond typical radio and communications applications, this CDU provides a central data entry and status display for the Search and Rescue rotorcraft platforms Personal Locator System (PLS).
The transflective display operates under a wide range of lighting conditions from full dark (NVIS) through bright sunlight. This smart display can control multiple devices and features an ARM 8 processor and interface built around four user defined bezel keys and two rotary selector knobs.
3.5 Transflective AMLCD Display Features:
- 3.5″ Transflective AMLCD, 320 x 240 (QVGA)
- Brightness: NVIS to 200cd/m2 (sunlight readable)
- Contrast Ratio: 400:1 (native)
- Texas Instruments ARM Cortex-A8 DaVinci DM3730 System on Module (800 MHz)
- 256MB SDRAM, 512MB NAND Flash, 8GB SD Flash
- One 10/100 Ethernet, Three USB 2.0 ports
- Two RS-422 serial ports, Two programmable discrete interfaces
- Controls: 5 sealed push-buttons, 1 brightness knob, 1 dual-concentric knob
