AEM Expands Infinity ECU into Marine Applications

AEM Infinity

AEM Performance Electronics is expanding its offering to include marine-specific EFI solutions using its Infinity standalone programmable ECU platform. The Infinity’s software architecture for marine includes the features critical to successful operation in a marine environment as well as additional capabilities not commonly found in many popular dedicated marine EFI systems including boost control, electronic throttle control, multiple mapping with map switching capability, flex-fuel blending, oil/coolant/fuel/lean/overboost, engine protection, user defined inputs & outputs, data logging up to 64GB and more. The Infinity’s housing is sealed and has IP67-rated ports for tuning and data logging (dustproof, waterproof to 1m). The Infinity comes fully enabled with no additional cost to enable features.

Built around a latest-generation 32 bit floating point 200MHz automotive processor and Real Time Operating System (RTOS), the Infinity is capable of processing 400 MIPS (millions of instructions per second). To our knowledge, the Infinity ECU currently has the fastest processing speed of any aftermarket programmable ECU available. This processing speed combined with a RTOS provides more accurate ignition timing for increased power and reliability, and more responsiveness to truly customize the driving experience for the driver. This allows the Infinity to perform more computational features without a sacrifice in processing performance. It allows you to do more, faster, in a more stable programming environment.

To ensure that all features and capabilities necessary for successful operation on a marine engine were incorporated and thoroughly vetted, AEM has developed a strategic partnership with Alexi Sahagian from BOOSTPOWER USA INC. ®

“Alexi’s experience in both pro-engine building and design, and sophisticated EFI systems for high performance marine builds is an invaluable asset ensuring that we deliver the most critical features for operating marine engines and that the user interface we provide makes the Infinity ECU the easiest, most powerful EFI solution for marine use,” stated AEM Performance Electronics President Greg Neuwirth. “Our companies align very well. We both have a commitment to innovation and delivering the best, most reliable products. AEM and BOOSTPOWER USA INC. are committed to the success of this venture.”

“Finally! I’ve been in this business for almost 30 years and until now, not one ECU has been able to incorporate all of the functions and features needed for high performance marine engines and drivetrains,” stated BOOSTPOWER USA INC’s President Alexi Sahagian. “Through our collaboration, an ECU is now available that has virtually unlimited tunability, multiple configuration options, safety features and an array of options for successful integration and reliability across a broad group of marine applications. We put a lot of pride in our builds and for them to be successful the ECU and related items need to be. We have achieved this with the launch of the Infinity ECU for the marine market.”
Key Infinity Marine EFI Features Include:

• Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP)-based, VE tuning does not require corrections for altitude
• Communicates with 3rd party digital dashes and loggers
• Programmable rev limiter tied to engine acceleration rate to prevent mechanical overrevs (if propeller leaves the water)
• Engine control for up to 12 cylinders
• Wasted spark and coil-on-plug ignition
• Ability to drive up to 16 injectors (semi sequential)
• Sophisticated cold and warm start strategies
• Robust idle, shift and docking management control
• Fast action pulsewidth modulated (PWM) idle air controller (IAC) ready
• 10x cylinder ignition trim and 200-point individual cylinder fuel trim with 64-point injector load phasing
• Flex fuel capable with real-time blend transition mapping capability (requires flex fuel sensor, sold separately)
• Programmable boost control tied to engine load, RPM or vehicle speed
• Programmable variable cam control up to 4 cams
• Two programmable Drive-by-Wire profiles
• Multiple engine protection strategies including lean, overboost, oil pressure, fuel pressure, coolant and oil temp protection
• Programmable knock control & response features
• Durable, weather resistant circuitry in fully sealed enclosure
• IP67-rated communications ports
• Data logging capability up to 64GB, up to 1KHz per channel
• Free AEMdata analysis software with video overlay using any video file type
• Virtually limitless tuning layouts
• EFI processing speed of 400 MIPS

The Infinity ECU is a true programmable standalone EFI system that requires tuning by a professional tuner. It is not a self-tuning system. Contact BOOSTPOWER MARINE at 877-BPOWER-4-U or call AEM Performance Electronics at (310) 484-2322 to find an authorized installer/tuner or to become a Factory Trained AEM tuner.
