Features

  • Dual LPC2148 MCUs
  • 14 ADC channels
  • 2 UARTs
  • 6 PWM outputs
  • 2 R/C Receiver inputs
  • 2 combined USB clients
  • 2 SPI busses
  • 2 I2C
  • Connector to dock with a Gumstix board
  • 3.3V linear regulator & 3.7V linear regulator (for Gumstix)
  • Audio (for data downlink without a modem)
  • 2 LEDs (status display)
  • 12 grams
  • 89 x 30mm

The Classix Control Board use 2 Philips LPC2148 ARM7 based microcontroller. The ARM7 is a low-power 32-bit RISC processor core and the Philips LPC2148 has 512KB on-chip Flash ROM, 40KB RAM and can be clocked at 60MHz.

With 2 MCUs this system is very robust, 1 MCU can handle all critical code, fly-by-wire and such, and the other can handle all autonomous processing. In the case of autonomous code error, the aircraft may be saved via manual control and the fbw MCU.

The ability to dock with a Gumstix board would allow for image processing, heavy communications, or payload support.
