Life Racing F90A Engine Management System (ECU)

From: £5,495.00 (+VAT)

The F90A ECU has been introduced to allow easy and cost effective control for challenging applications with high pin count and up to 12 fully sequential cylinders. Focused towards the professional motorsport industry, it features a ruggedized enclosure and Deutsch Autosport connectors.

For full specification of this ECU, please see the description below the ECU configuration options.

Configure your F90A ECU:


This Life Racing F90A features a twin processor unit which uses a high-speed RISC processor for code execution and an additional large FPGA for high-speed engine position tracking. This allows 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 F90A is designed to control complex engines including, turbocharged, supercharged, twin drive by wire, quad cam, quad vvt, vtec, gdi, gearbox, differential and much 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.

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