ABSTRACT: The proposed single chip SOC ASIC device integrates many diverse and improved functions required for interfacing with most types of FADEC Control sensors and actuators. The SOC is a scalable, flexible and affordable solution that can be used to build Smart Nodes, Data Concentrators as well as many other building blocks or a distributed architecture FADEC or to expand the capabilities of a legacy FADEC system by adding a sensor or actuator. BENEFIT: The successful development of the SOC function will complete the portfolio of essential components needed to implement a Smart Node in a distributed Architecture FADEC system. The same Smart Nodes can be applied without hardware change for controlling actuators, interfacing with sensors or a combination providing an affordable, scalable and reusable solution for Commercial and military engines, small or large, missiles and UAVs.
