NUUM DESIGN : Helping Engineering Go Higher, Get Faster
Who we are ?
Nuum Design is a technology adoption company aiming at bringing new design techniques and technologies into engineering. Through a wide varieties of adoption services, it helps you to smoothly integrate virtual prototyping
, co-design, system-level design and behavioural synthesis.
We believe that Risk Management
and Change Management
are essential for technology adoption, and that's our approach !
Avionic FMS with Google Earth employing Micrium uC/OS-II RTOS
Nuum Design developed a flight management system (FMS) of a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using OVP virtual prototyping. The system manages the UAV flight commands following a mission order (GPS coordinates) and outputs UAV GPS coordinates into Google Earth and displays UAV flight parameters into a Glass Display.
The goal was to develop an embedded software application and explore architectural choices with different configurations. A co-processor has been added to enhance system performances and meet timing constraints.
This system mostly consists in virtual hardware parts (CORDIC, timer, UART, AMBA Bus), an ARM7 processor and a commercial RTOS running on top of it (Micrium uC/OS-II) . OVP perfomances allow us to run the system live on our machines.
