One or two computers
On the single computer systems, the SX90 Processor Unit performs all processing tasks.
All SX90 sonars delivered after January 2010 are fitted with only one computer.
On the older dual computer SX90 systems, the Processor Unit software is the SX90 program that controls the menu system, operational modes, features and presentations. The Beamformer Unit software controls how the data from the Transceiver Unit are received and processed prior to presentation.
