The Cube Orange + IMU V8 provides power routing, over/under voltage detection and protection, filtering, switching, current-limiting, and transient suppression for peripherals. Two sets of IMU are vibration-isolated mechanically, reducing the effect of frame vibration on state estimation.
Fully Cubepilot carrier board compatible, all inputs and outputs go through an 80-Pin DF17 connector, allowing a plug-in solution for manufacturers of commercial systems. IMUs are temperature-controlled by onboard heating resistors, allowing the optimum working temperature of IMUs. The entire flight management unit (FMU) and inertial management unit (IMU) are housed in a relatively small form factor (a cube).
Power outputs to peripherals feature ESD and EMI filtering, and the power supply protection scheme ensures that no more than 5.5 V is presented to peripheral devices. Power is disconnected from the peripherals when the available supply voltage falls below 2.7 V, or rises above approximately 5.7 V.
The Cube has eight PWM outputs that are connected to IO and can be controlled by IO directly via R/C input and onboard mixing even if FMU is not active (failsafe/manual mode). Multiple update rates can be supported on these outputs in three groups; one group of four and two groups of two. PWM signal rates up to 400 Hz can be supported. These 8 PWMs are output ONLY and are capable of driving up to 50 mA each, but only a total of 100 mA for the 8.
