A complete graphics system for use in modular avionics is built around a liquid crystal flat panel display. Screen refresh is handled by display controller that provides a bit mapped representation of the display in RAM. A 8085 based single board computer is programmed to allow user defined graphics symbols to be moved about easily, and a character generator is included to facilitate the display of ASCII strings. The computer uses a RS-232 interface to receive commands. A demonstration program is also included which demonstrates a simple instrument landing system (ILS) type display without the need for an external device.
