Product description

The TSCU-5045 belongs to the ScioTeq’s family of Touch Screen Control Units. Its 4"x5" (6.4") Multi-Function Display can act as a classic ARINC-739 interface while simultaneously enabling the integration of various cockpit functions such as virtual control panels, FMS, etc., reducing overall cockpit system costs and space requirements.

Through its powerful ARINC-653 based processing platform and ScioTeq’s MOSArtTM (Modular Open System Architecture) middleware, the TSCU allows customers to develop and integrate their own applications (e.g. virtual control panels, mission solutions, etc.) on this flexible platform.

The TSCU-5xxx is a family of products equipped with the latest generation touchscreens. Depending on the touchscreen option selected, it can be extended with a context based force sensor that enables software applications to respond to a desired force feedback in a specified region of interest, leading to a fluent interaction for the user while maintaining robustness against incidental touches and providing dissimilarity of touch inputs for increased redundancy.
