FPGA on Aero

Jump to solution

Hi. I am an amateur drone enthusiast and working on a research project using the Aero Intel drone. I recently found out that the drone has an FPGA processor on it. Few specific questions regarding the processor structure of this drone:

1) Which processor is FPGA emulating?

2) Where does the flight controller run on (which processor)?

3) Our GPS module was not working on QGroundControl so we found online that we had to flash the FPGA. Our GPS now works; any explanation as to how the flashing affected the GPS?

4) How is the Atom x7 processor and FPGA linked?

Thanks!
