The FCU information is fed to both FMGCs. The FCU has 3 channels, each capable of driving the entire FCU. The FCU is actually 3 control panels, 1 for the automatic flight controls, and 2 for the EFIS.

The change from speed to mach occurs around FL305.


If 1 channel fails, there are no consequences. If 2 channels fail, the FCU fault is reported to the crew. The AP and A/THR may or may not be lost depending which channels have failed. With a total failure, both APs, A/THR, and FCU controls and indications are lost. Note that in LAND mode below 400' RA, there is no operational consequence of a total FCU failure.
