  • High brightness wide-viewing angle TFT display (1,600+ nits). Sunlight viewable. One of the brightest screens available that is sunlight viewable. Note: The more pixels you have, the more light is diffused and the less sunlight-readable the display is. We have chosen our display for best sunlight-readability.
  • Display resolution/size: VGA (320x240) at 5.7 inches diagonal
  • Adjustable display contrast and backlight.
  • User interface: 20 keys including full numeric keypad and navigation keys.
  • Alarm light on front panel with acknowledge key.

Enigma Hardware Platform

  • ARM 926JE 32 bit main processor with 160K high speed static memory, 16K code and 16K data cache. 4.0 MByte very low power, fully static radiation resistant RAM – nonvolatile.
  • 4.0 Mbyte advanced Flash memory for program storage (executable access).
  • Main processor and memories on replaceable module allowing easy system upgrades.
  • All memories with 32 bit datapath.
  • ARM 7 core processor exclusively dedicated to GPS navigation.
  • ATMega128 processor responsible for data acquisition, audio synthesis and general system control and monitoring
  • On-board advanced 16 channel GPS
  • Altitude, airspeed and angle-of-attack (AOA) pressure sensors
  • Transponder altitude encoder output (parallel Gillman code).
  • RS232 NMEA output dedicated to autopilot interface and similar applications
  • RS232 output for general purpose use, intended primarily for use with attitude sensors made by third party vendors or navigation radios (VOR, ILS, DME, etc.)
  • MGL Avionics Airtalk multi master interface (2 x). Primarily intended for MGL Avionics attitude and compass sensors and system extension modules.
  • Audio output for voice and sound synthesizer. High level to drive a speaker and low level for interface with aircraft intercom system
  • Provision to power backup battery with built in float charging circuit to ensure long battery life
  • Secured supply output for supply of critical sensors in case of main power failure
  • USB device port
  • USB host port (2 x)
  • Low power design with wide supply voltage range. System operates from as little as 6V DC (reduced display brightness) and is suitable for 24/28V systems.
  • Ability to support displays from a variety of manufacturers and types from advanced temperature compensated passive displays to various types of TFT displays. Standard displays with 800-1000 nits brightness and full readability with sunlight directly on the display surface
  • 20 key tactile membrane keypad, easy to clean and moisture/dust proof
  • SD card slot for data transfer to and from system, also used to hold map data. Will accept MMC cards as well but these are slightly slower in operation
  • Alarm outputs in the form of on-screen alarm messages, voice audio output, switched output (switch an external alarm light for example), alarm panel light and external alarm array output via I/O extender

Enigma Software Platform

  • FlightOps (tm), our proprietary operating system.
  • Standard Enigma application software with support for user designed screen layouts
  • Flexible setup with metric or imperial/US units of measure

Enigma capabilities with standard software and hardware

  • Altimeter -700 to 40,000 ft, 1ft dynamic resolution in flight at sea-level.
  • Airspeed 16 mph to 250 mph, 1mph resolution. Other ranges for special applications available
  • Vertical speed +/-2000 ft/min analog range, +/-10.000 ft/min digital range. Fast response suitable for gliders
  • Total energy compensated vertical speed indicator (in addition to normal indicator) without requirement for additional pressure compensation ports
  • VSI/TE VSI history moving data display for thermalling and soaring
  • Altitude encoder output (parallel gillman code) for mode-C transponders
  • NMEA autopilot output (4800 baud, RS232, messages RMB, RMC, GGA)
  • Airtalk link support for optional SP-3, SP-4, SP-5 AHRS systems and SP-1, SP-2 Compass modules. Airtalk link also used to share data in multipanel mode systems
  • Support for Stratomaster Ultra Horizon XL as secondary instrument (Ultra uses data from Enigma)
  • Engine monitoring support by means of one or two RDAC units. RDAC units can be used for either two engines or combined for engines that require a large amount of monitoring channels
  • With two RDAC units maximum monitoring capability is: 24 channels of EGT/CHT thermocouples, six channels for NTC temperature probes (coolant, oil temperature, Rotax 912 CHT), 2 channels oil pressure, 2 fuel flows, 4 fuel tank levels, 2 RPM monitors. Further support for fuel pressure and carburetor temperature monitoring
  • Rotor craft support, separate rotor RPM input not reliant on RDAC units
  • Support for optonal Airtalk I/O extender for monitoring of flap, gear and trim and similar items, both switched (on/off) as well as analog inputs (value). Outputs to switch various alarm type indicators
  • Support for optional Airtalk battery current monitor to measure charge/discharge currents
  • GPS based navigation engine with large capacity waypoint/airport database (up to 50,000 waypoints). Active waypoint management during flight, and the closest waypoints are always on hand without need to search for them.
  • Support for different airport types, intersections, altitude change waypoints (vertical navigation), navaids, etc.
  • Moving map support using actual raster maps as backdrop. Ability to use any digital map image including scanned images. Full support for user-created maps using Windows PC-based Mapmaker software package. Degree tile based raster map file format for seamless map coverage
  • Moving map support for vector based database format, in combination with raster image backdrop maps or terrain elevation data
  • Terrain awareness monitoring
  • Airspace monitoring and alerts
  • 3D terrain map views
  • Traffic monitoring (available on a regional basis depending on various systems and integration schedules)
