XTENDERmp taps into the power of a world-recognized autopilot and expands it to fill the gap between standard autopilot functionality and your specific requirements.
MP plug-ins are code modules that execute at the same time as the autopilot code and allow customers to add functionality to the autopilot to differentiate their products and close the gap between the standard autopilot functionality and their custom requirements
MP plug-ins can access 64k RAM for data and 64k Flash for code
MP plug-ins run under the autopilot simulator to simplify testing and speed development
MP plug-ins can access all autopilot state fields
MP plug-ins can provide customer-specific servo mixing
Customer-defined control laws can replace any or all existing MP2x28 control laws
MicroPilot plug-ins can access unused autopilot hardware for custom payload control and data collection
Up to 9 I/O channels are available for MicroPilot plug-in. Each I/O channel can be configured as one of: serial input, serial output, PWM in, PWM out, single-bit input, or single-bit output
XTENDERmp includes a “software in the loop” 6-DOF simulator linked to autopilot code.
Simulator update rate: 150 Hz
Accepts autopilot commands via PC serial port; speeds development of embedded payload/mission controllers
Simulates communication, engine failure, loss of GPS lock, loss of RC signal, loss of communications, and low-battery failures
Availability of simulator gives end-product training mode
