- Powerful processing and graphics module with substantial growth capability
- ScioTeq’s MOSArtTM middleware platform for hosting multiple software applications at different DAL levels (A to E)
- Very wide viewing angles – ideal for cross-cockpit viewability
- Brightness up to 200fL, making it suitable for installation in helicopters and open cockpit aircraft
- NVIS Class B compatibility
- Guaranteed brightness and color range over the operating temperature of the display and over its lifetime
- Large array of Input and Output interfaces
Using a powerful processing platform the MFD-2068 is an open system very well suited for hosting today’s demanding applications.
This ARINC 653-based display platform is based on VxWorks653 Real Time Operating System (RTOS) and ScioTeq’s MOSArtTM (Modular Open System Architecture) middleware.
Modular by design, the MFD-2068 allows customers to simultaneously host combinations of software applications that can be customer proprietary, ScioTeq proprietary, such as Primary Flight Display (PFD), Navigation Display (ND), etc., and from 3rd parties. Importantly, these hosted applications can be individually designed to varying Design Assurance Levels (DAL), up to and including DAL A, reducing development and integration costs.
Optically, ScioTeq’s proprietary Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display and LED backlight technology delivers a visual performance second to none: high contrast ratio and superior color stability, very wide viewing angles and superior brightness in Day, Night and NVIS modes.
And there is even more: the optical quality is guaranteed over the complete temperature range and life-time of the display, thanks to ScioTeq’s proprietary control mechanisms.
