3ATI General Purpose Intelligent Cockpit AMTFT Display (GPICAD) – GPICAD
The GPICAD is a small, modular and lightweight general purpose intelligent cockpit display. Separate boards inside the enclosure guarantee easy adaptation to custom requirements. The boards are stacked and firmly mounted inside the enclosure. The GPICAD is developed for several kinds of airborne certifiable applications, such as:
> Crew information display
> Positioning information display
> General Monitoring Information display
> Replacement for obsolete cockpit equipment
> Standby equipment
The GPICAD has ARINC-429 interfaces to communicate with other equipment in the aircraft, plus discrete inputs and outputs for interfacing with the aircraft control and relay panels. Analog I/O and other interfaces like MIL-STD1553 and ARINC-825 can also be implemented.
The GPICAD is built around the powerful MPC5554 processor and has an extended temperature Active Matrix TFT display, 2.8inch QVGA 320×240 pixel resolution with graphics controller in FPGA. This guarantees long availability and better environmental specifications as well as the option for customization according to specific custom requirements.
The MPC5554 and FPGA offer a maximum of flexibility for all kinds of applications.
