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.
XMC4500 multicopter demoboard – full system solution
At the heart of the system is the flight controller, which is built around an Infineon XMC4500 ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit microcontroller. IR2301 drivers, low-voltage MOSFETs and MPU9250 Invensense inertial measurement unit (IMU) provide the additional units that make up the electronic powertrain, motor control and flight sensing functional blocks.
