AUAVX autopilot

Postby nickarsow » Wed Oct 30, 2013 2:45 pm

Hi guys,
I'm new here. This is my first post and project idea based on XMOS ICs. I'm the HW designer of AUAV1, 2 and AUAV3 autopilots ( http://arsovtech.com/?page_id=1340 ) and have a very unusual idea of using XMOS in the next autopilot....should name it AUAVXMOS.
Here it is:
A/ Current situation
1. Single MCU for everything;
2. All peripherals are connected to it via ADC channels, I2C, SPI,CAN, USB,etc.
3. Interrupt driven( too many issues ) or RTOS driven tasks.
B/ The new approach/idea
1. Each peripheral managed by a separate Xcore;
2. All peripheral management could be either synchronous or not;
3. The ARM core will manage the data from the xcores. As all the maths over the raw data and the communication routines to/from peripherals will be performed in the xcores, the ARM will be free of performing dummy/routine tasks, but just with the fusion.

To continue with development I have a few questions as follow:
1. How could I engage and manage the ADC channels;
2. Has someone designed an OSD?;
3. Where could I find a complete info about Xcore-XA devices?

Thanks in advance with best regards
Nick

Hello Nick,

You can get the product brief of xCORE-XA here. More information about xCORE-XA will be updated in the website in the section xCORE-XA.

You can find some ADC example code here:

Here is the example usage program: https://github.com/xcore/sc_periph/blob ... rc/main.xc

Hi guys,
Thanks for your kind explanations. I started the design of my new AUAVX autopilot. I use Altium Designer for SCH and PCB design. I have all the schematics finished but the XA, for what I have some questions which will help me continue:
1. Need FBGA265 land pattern;
2. Need XS1-XAU8A-1024 pin map;
3. Although the XA series docs are not ready yet, could I have some preliminary datasheets...could be in a tentative format.
Best regards
Nick
