The new R-DAS v4.0 !!

AED is proud to present the new R-DAS v4.0! The photo below shows three generations of R-DAS flight computer; R-DAS classic (obsolete), R-DAS compact (current version), and the new R-DAS v4.0, code name "tiny".

From left to right: R-DAS classic, R-DAS compact and R-DAS tiny.

New features

The new R-DAS has an exiting set of new features. The most important ones are:
Four independent igniter output ports
Dual axis accelerometer
Small printed circuit board (28x80mm / 1.1"x3.15"), fits in 29mm rockets!
USB interface: super-fast data download
Reduced power usage
More storage memory 
16x more processing power than the Classic/Compact

100% Backward compatibility

Compatible with all expansion boards
Same user interface

USB download and configuration

Super-fast downloads are now possible thanks to the USB interface. A full memory download now takes less than 12 seconds! The R-DAS Tiny comes with a USB cable.

More data memory 

The data memory is more than doubled. Here are some data logging examples:
29 minutes of acceleration and altitude data at 200 samples per second
8 minutes of 8 analog channels and digital status at 200 samples per second
When using lower sample rates the storage times become proportionally longer!

Modern micro-processor

A long term advantage is the modern micro-processor and the large amount of program memory. The processor is 16x faster than the one used in the Classic/Compact and has 8x more program memory. This enables us to implement new features in the future.

PCB layout

The R-DAS consists has three major connectors, see photo below. The brown power/igniter connector, the black expansion connector (100% compatible with previous R-DAS flight computer) and a USB connector. One cable harness for power/igniters will be shipped with each R-DAS.
