Key benefits

Benefits Our offer

Development effort & cost reduction

  • With no or little experience in motor control, customers can implement the iMotion™ motor control IC and take flight
  • Project development can be reduced by 30% by using reference designs and the DAVE™ platform for microcontroller programming

Security & authentication

  • Enables authentication of components connected to the system and secure safety and protect product liability
  • Brand protection and a secured strong identity are provided by state of the art security products which are easy to integrate
Accuracy & easy control
  • Through the benefits of multifunction sensors, the user can experience an easy, stable, smooth and accurate control of the multicopter
  • Closed loop control of gimbal motor and sensors enhance camera stable and data transmission when recording video
  • The highly efficient components and effective flight control can make the multicopter lighter, which results in longer flight time

Collision avoidance

  • 24GHz can be used to measure the presence of objects, measure range, speed/velocity, determine proximity, and determine the position of object


A glance into the future

In the fast-growing multicopter market, Infineon is showing signs of quickly becoming a one-stop-shop for existing drone applications. Why? Research and development for multicopters offers many synergies with projects such as autonomous driving and unmanned aerial vehicles, both of which could potentially revolutionize the market and our daily lives.

In years to come, as energy efficiency and reliability grow in importance, and as new capabilities push the limits of power management and reliability, Infineon is ready to assist you in designing the next generation of unmanned aerial vehicles.
