The Phase 3D spacecraft is very complex and requires considerably more
Input/Output (I/O) capacity than can be conveniently provided by the IHU's 1802 processor. Previous Phase 3 spacecraft
used an analog multiplexer to provide 24 temperature inputs, 24 voltage
measurement points and 12 current measurement points. The Phase 3D
In addition, numerous 8-bit and 16-bit digital output ports are latched
and/or decoded by the I/O module.
- 48 temperature measurement points,
- 64 voltage measurement points and
- 12 current measurements points.
Like the IHU, the I/O Module is designed using
flight-proven 4000-series CMOS logic operating at 10 volts, as well as
bipolar op-amps and comparators. The basis of the circuitry uses
legacy designs by DJ4ZC.
