Pixhawk 2 Autopilot

Pixhawk 2 has been designed by the Pixhawk open hardware community in collaboration with 3D Robotics and was first released as the autopilot of the 3DR Solo. Although slated for a standalone release by 3DR, it eventually became only available two years later through an effort of Hex66 and ProfiCNC.

Prototype, back then with Molex Clickmate (final version has JST GH)

Key Features

  • 168 MHz / 252 MIPS Cortex-M4F
  • 14 PWM / Servo outputs (8 with failsafe and manual override, 6 auxiliary, high-power compatible)
  • Abundant connectivity options for additional peripherals (UART, I2C, CAN)
  • Integrated backup system for in-flight recovery and manual override with dedicated processor and stand-alone power supply (fixed-wing use)
  • Backup system integrates mixing, providing consistent autopilot and manual override mixing modes (fixed wing use)
  • Redundant power supply inputs and automatic failover
  • External safety switch
  • Multicolor LED main visual indicator
  • High-power, multi-tone piezo audio indicator
  • microSD card for high-rate logging over extended periods of time

Processor

  • 32bit STM32F427 Cortex M4 core with FPU
  • 168 MHz
  • 256 KB RAM
  • MB Flash (fully accessible)
  • 32 bit STM32F103 failsafe co-processor

Sensors

  • TBA

Interfaces

  • 5x UART (serial ports), one high-power capable, 2x with HW flow control
  • 2x CAN (one with internal 3.3V transceiver, one on expansion connector)
  • Spektrum DSM / DSM2 / DSM-X® Satellite compatible input
  • Futaba S.BUS® compatible input and output
  • PPM sum signal input
  • RSSI (PWM or voltage) input
  • I2C
  • SPI
  • 3.3 and 6.6V ADC inputs
  • Internal microUSB port and external microUSB port extension

Power System and Protection

  • Ideal diode controller with automatic failover
  • Servo rail high-power (max. 10V) and high-current (10A+) ready
  • All peripheral outputs over-current protected, all inputs ESD protected

Voltage Ratings

Pixhawk can be triple-redundant on the power supply if three power sources are supplied. The three rails are: Power module input, servo rail input, USB input.

Normal Operation Maximum Ratings

Under these conditions all power sources will be used in this order to power the system

  1. Power module input (4.8V to 5.4V)
  2. Servo rail input (4.8V to 5.4V) UP TO 10V FOR MANUAL OVERRIDE, BUT AUTOPILOT PART WILL BE UNPOWERED ABOVE 5.7V IF POWER MODULE INPUT IS NOT PRESENT
  3. USB power input (4.8V to 5.4V)

Absolute Maximum Ratings

Under these conditions the system will not draw any power (will not be operational), but will remain intact.

  1. Power module input (4.1V to 5.7V, 0V to 20V undamaged)
  2. Servo rail input (4.1V to 5.7V, 0V to 20V)
  3. USB power input (4.1V to 5.7V, 0V to 6V)
