The RC airplane example illustrates the diverse capabilities of the VHDL-AMS modeling language. This system is implemented with a combination of analog, digital, mechanical and s-domain models. This final case study integrates the subsystems from Case Studies 1 to 4 into a complete airplane system. The following topics are highlighted: interfacing the command and control and rudder systems; analyzing system power supply effects; designing the propeller system; and implementing the human controller into the overall system.
Figure 26-1 shows the complete system diagram for the RC airplane system. ...
