-The Avionics team is currently working on 'AV3' class hardware and firmware for the [[Launch Vehicle No. 2c|ProjectLV2]] airframe. The AV3 hardware includes a PowerPC flight computer, a USB-based avionics bus, and a half-dozen USB-based avionics nodes including a GPS, IMU, power system, recovery node, and amateur TV broadcast.
+The Avionics team is currently working on 'AV3' class hardware and firmware for the [[Launch Vehicle No. 2c|ProjectLV2]] airframe. The AV3 hardware is run by an Intel Atom-based PCI-104 flight computer (FC) attached to various sensor and actuator nodes using Ethernet as a low-latency safety critical bus and USB as an easy bulk-data bus. The sensors and actuators include a GPS, IMU, power system, and amateur TV broadcast.
- If you're new to the avionics team, or you want some information on a previous sytem, please see our [[Introduction to PSAS Avionics Page|AvionicsIntro]], and then see our list of project ideas below.
