Transport Canada Grants TSO for FTG's Cursor Control Device Avionic Equipment


Reading time ( words)

Firan Technology Group Corp. (FTG), a leading provider of electronic products and avionic sub-systems for the aerospace and defense markets, has received a Canadian Technical Standard Order (CAN-TSO) certification from Transport Canada for its Cursor Control Device (CCD). The CAN-TSO certification can be used for receiving FAA-TSO certification under the bilateral agreement between Canada and the United States. With this design and production approval, production of the CCD can commence.

FTG's CCD is an innovative, customizable, joystick-based design that is an integral part of the Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) in modern avionics. CCDs are utilized by pilots for precision cursor navigation on the aircraft's primary flight displays.

This CAN-TSO will serve as the CCD product certification baseline for other future variants of CCD that are to be built by FTG.

"After achieving this major step, our CCD is now available in the market and ready for production. We have received initial production orders and are excited to move from a design/development phase to production.  We thank our customers for their support and we appreciate their business," stated Brad Bourne, President and CEO, FTG.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 4: Tuning Your Signal Performance

11/18/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
The objective of this article is to demonstrate the possibility of using a stitching element as an alternative to the point-to-point connections that are used with traditional via technology. Point-to-point connections have the best performance in terms of signal integrity (one via less in the connection that distorts the signal). A via is mainly a capacitive element that causes signal loss/ dispersion.

Multilayer Press Technology Using Magnetism to Produce Lamination Heat

11/11/2019 | Victor Lazaro Gallego, Chemplate Materials
A revolutionary concept in multilayer press technology has been developed that uses electromagnetic energy to heat the existing stainless-steel separator plates with a never-before dreamed-of accuracy and precision. The heating and cooling systems—embedded within a robust hydraulic press inside a vacuum chamber design—are controlled using a temperature feedback loop that guarantees perfect fidelity between the press recipe and the press result.
