Stratomaster Instrumentation MGL Avionics

MGL Avionics designs and produces a wide variety of aircraft avionics from sophisticated, highly flexible EFIS systems to airband transceivers.

MGL Avionics - Affordable Aircraft Instruments

iEFIS is the next generation EFIS system utilizing a custom developed, pressure sensitive, sunlight readable touch screen that can also be operated using gloves.

MGL Avionics iEFIS project

iEFIS combines the undeniable advantages of simplified operation that a touch screen can offer with rich traditional controls which are equaly indispensible in the cockpit environment. The pressure sensitive touch screen operates much like a tactile button does preventing false activation when touching the screen during turbulent conditions.

GMC75X Credit Card Microcontroller

Ideal for those small jobs where a standard embedded controller can't be justified. The GMC75X is like a "BASIC Stamp" except that you can program the module in 'C' using C-FLEA and a download cable. Alternatively, use 8051 assembler.

Design Experience

"In the early 1980's, products were designed using the Zilog Z80 micro-processor. These ranged from a simple sequence controller to one of the world's first all digital DC motor controllers. Single and 3-phase 240Vac and 415Vac fully regenerative models were developed. Some are still running today! A common application area was paper and film conversion machinery."
