Gauge Technology Spec's

There are a number of specs of the RoadRage Gauge itself. The whole unit is based on a 96 MIP (Million Instruction Per Second) ARM Cortex M3 Microcontroller. It has high speed program flash on board the micro and 4 megabytes of external SPI based serial flash for graphics memory.

The Sensor Scalers themselves contain various Analog to Digital Converts, Accelerometers, Sensors and Microcontrollers. The gauges contain an 8 bit Microcontroller for Communications and to aquire the EFR Speed Sensor Signal. The SBT Scaler also contains an 18 bit Sigma Delta A to D converter. We downsample the sampling rate on the Temp sensor to 16 bits - and 12 bits on the Speed Sensor and the Boost Sensor. Data Acquisition speed runs to 180 hertz in this configuration.

The Boost Sensor itself is a Freescale MPX4250 that is a micromachined silicon sensor whose sister part is found in Delco's GM MAP sensors. It is Temperature Compensated, on-chip signal conditioned and precision calibrated. The sensor is a 240 KPA (3 BAR) sensor which measures from 0-36 PSI of boost.

Boost

We offer two other sensors on special order that go from 0-75 PSI and 0-101 psi. Email tech@roadragegages if you want the modified sensor. The higher pressure sensors would only be necessary for scary high boost configurations and are not suitable for the street.
