F-35 JSF avionics

The second picture shows the flat panel display in a three different sets of display modes. There's a lot more to pilot/aircraft interface than this, as well as to the overall avionics fit.

Is the absence of a HUD made up by use of a helmet-mounted sight like JHMCS?

But better, as well as a few other advanced, but well tested, items.

Can you elaborate a bit further (if possible)?

I'd always wondered about the future of the HUD with items like the JHMCS coming into use.......
The JHMCS is mated/integrated with two large multi-function displays and there are some other systems to help the pilot (sorry, not sure if I can say more).

F-35 helmet-mounted display.

F-35 helmet-mounted display versions compairisons.

The helmet-mounted display system, or HMDS, displays head-steerable symbology, meaning the pilot's line of sight dictates the content that appears on the visor.

From Code One magazine:

The F-35 cockpit is also the first in a production fighter to use a virtual head-up display that projects information onto the pilot’s helmet visor. The new system, called a helmet-mounted display, or HMD, was switched on in March for the first time in F-35 laboratories where it projected symbology onto the visor by way of the actual F-35 vehicle-management and display-management computers. The HMD provides HUD information as though pilots are looking through an actual HUD no matter in what direction they turn their heads

From Code One magazine:

The F-35 cockpit is a generation beyond preceding aircraft, as large liquid crystal touch-screen displays feature color-coded symbology, pictographs, and digital information. Also, the head-up display has been replaced by a helmet-mounted display as the primary flight reference.

Are there any information about chips used for the TR-2 and 3? It is quite well documented that up until TR-1 ICP was powered by Motorola/Freescale Power architecture based CPUs alongside Xilinx FPGAs and AMD GPUs.

The AMD GPU is still being used albeit customized on the TR-3 but I can't find any infos regarding other chips for the TR-2 and 3 ICP. As a matter of fact I barely have found any coverage regarding TR-2 for some reason.

I still think that the ICP would be fitted with Power architecture processor from NXP and FPGAs from Xilinx, since there aren't much choice when it comes to alternatives, especially since I don't think they would've went with x86 all of the sudden. I think this is especially true considering natice signal processing using Altivec, which they've been employing for quite a while now.
