Avionics: Flight Control System

Actuators

Description

The flight control systems of modern day aircraft vary with the size and performance expected by the aircraft. Fly-by-wire (FBW) or digital fly-by-wire (DFBW) are replacing the traditionally mechanical or hydraulic systems of the past. Sensor measurements around the plane (gyros, air speed sensors, etc.) are combined with pilot commands from the cockpit to deliver commands to various actuators located at each of the aircraft’s control surfaces. TI has developed products and design resources in order to meet the high demands of flight control systems. These include:

  • Solutions featuring TI’s Enhanced Product (EP) portfolio, which allows designs to meet the extreme temperature fluctuations with -55 to 125°C rated products
  • Industrial grade Ethernet PHYs for use in protocols such as AFDX/ARINC 664
  • EXT power modules that have been tested to meet the vibration and drop standards MIL-STD-883 Method 2007.2 and Method 2002.3, respectively
  • Resolver-to-digital converters (RDCs) for a highly integrated solution for controlling the slats and flaps in the harsh conditions found on the edge of the aircraft’s wings
