F88

pdu_32

The F88 ECU is an extremely high level of precision engine management control. The twin processor unit uses a high speed RISC processor for code execution and an additional large FPGA for high speed engine position tracking, allowing the scheduling of code to be independent of signal patterns, increasing flexibility, efficiency and accuracy under transient conditions. This powerful combination also allows advanced control algorithms but yet easy to map for the end user.

The F88 is designed to control the most complex engines including, turbocharged, supercharged, twin drive by wire, quad cam, quad vvt, vtec, gdi, gearbox, differential and many more! The unique crank and cam sync logger allow the flexibility of controlling the most awkward trigger patterns capable of running all current known patterns and even future OEM timing wheels.

All of this hardware is packaged within a lightweight CNC billet aluminium case. Designed to be installed in the most harshest of motorsport environments.
