Analog acquisition system
The Analog Acquisition System is intended to provide communication between the analog and the digital systems of the aircraft airborne equipment. It manages the translation of analog signals from variety of sensors and actuators into avionics data formats, supporting cockpit flexibility needs in upgrade, control, and data recording applications.The system is highly modular and can be set up for any numbers and types of analog data to process.

The heart of the system is a Texas Instruments™ Hercules™ Safety ARM MCU, a dual-core processor running in a lock step mode, based on TI’s 20+ years of safety critical system expertise. Unlike many microcontrollers that rely heavily on software for safety capabilities, Hercules™ microcontrollers implement safety in hardware to maximize performance and reduce software overhead. Dual-core lockstep CPU architecture, hardware BIST, MPU, ECC and on-chip clock and voltage monitoring are some of the key functional safety features available to meet the needs of automotive, railway and aerospace applications.
