The San Juan is a “proof of concept” EFB system that demonstrated the utility of 8.4” SVGA sunlight readable displays in a cockpit environment. The display head measured 6.0” x 8.5” x 1.125“ and weighed 2.1Lbs. It included the AMLCD display, a high dimming ratio backlight, touch screen, keyboard interface and controller. The display utilized an LVDS interface to minimize EMI. The remote mounted 400MHz Pentium based CPU measured 4.8” x 6.0” x 1.8 and weighed 3.1 Lbs.
About This Project:
The San Juan project objective was to create an EFB prototype system for cockpit evaluation. The client, Boeing Cabin Information Services, needed to present an EFB option in 8 weeks. We were able to meet Boeing’s tight schedule and deliver a complete “road show” demonstration system.
San Juan Prototype Specifications
The San Juan Prototype consists of three basic components; the Display Module, the Processor/Power Supply and the Interconnect Cable.
The Display Module is 6.00” x 8.50” x 1.125” thick and weighs 2.1 lbs. It is identical in size to the production San Juan. It contains the display, backlight, line entry keys, control keys, resistive touch screen, ambient light sensor, power indicator, and backlight power supplies.
The Processor/Power Supply contains the Processor Motherboard, 28 VDC power supply, 3.2 GB hard drive and interfaces.
The Interconnect Cable provides power and communication between the Display and Processor.
