The CMA-4000 is a Flight and Displays Management System backed by CMC Electronics' features-rich portfolio of navigation, communications, database, mission and display software. The CMA-4000 employs an open-system architecture for protection against obsolescence and features extensive processing, memory and bus interface capabilities for growth. In addition to operating as a traditional FMS/CDU, it can optionally drive up to 2 external MFDs, providing extensive graphics capability and an integrated management of the CDU/MFD man-made machine interface. For added flexibility, the CMA-4000 also offers multi-processor support for the development of independent or customer designed software applications.
The CMA-4000 incorporates built-in flexibility by providing a wide array of standard bus, analog and discrete interfaces and a total of 284 pins at the rear connector. The maximum size of the 640x480 color display is 5"x 4", and is both sunlight readable and NVG compatible. It uses LED backlighting for greater reliability. It also accommodates keypanels of various sizes and designs to suit customer needs.
The basic configuration consists of one processor card with PMC, one graphics carrier card (optional graphic PMC), one I/O Assembly, and two spare cPCI card slots. When the optional graphics PMC is installed, the CMA-4000 can accommodate 2 video composite/S-video inputs and provides 2 RGB video outputs to drive multifunction displays. Its graphics engine rotates and scales video and superimposes graphics for display on MFDs in either portrait or landscape mode.
