Interfaces Controller (ifc)
This is optional component and it can be used to extend AP system with additional interfaces.
Interface Controller Board contains a number of various interfaces and is used to interface AP system to servos, measure voltages, power control,
input and output of different digital and analog signals. This board also contains a number of standard ports: 3V UART, RS485, RS232, CAN, 1-wire, i2c and others, which could be used to communicate with payload devices and to integrate standard avionics. The on-board software allows to extend autopilot system with any number of IFC boards connected to the same CAN network.
The built-in analog multiplexer is used to map logical signal to any of twelve physical ports of the board.
12x general purpose input/output ports connected to the multiplexer
8 analog inputs (4x high voltage)
2x CAN interfaces
2x UART TTL / RS-232 / RS-485 serial ports with controlled termination
12x 5V drivers (GPO/PWM outputs)
Power distribution switch 2 in 3 out
Independent switched power output with integrated Step-Down converter (0.5A, +5V).
Independent switched power output with integrated Step-Down converter (0.5A, +3.3V).
