AAUSAT3 - Hardware


AAUSAT3 PCB.

In AAUSAT3 three type of miccontrollers are used:

  • AT90CAN128 at 8/12 MHz
    • running FreeRTOS realtime kernel
    • Two external flash storage chips with our own developed flash storage
    • used for COM, AIS1, EPS, ADCS-1,COM
  • ARM7 microcontroller at 60Mhz
    • runningFreeRTOS realtime kernel
    • used for ADCS-2
  • BlackFinn DSP for SDR radio
    • running linux
    • used for AIS2

All interconnected with a 500 kbit/sec CANBUS and CSP (Cubesat Space pPotocol)
