UAV Motor Controls and Actuator Drivers

Reliable and efficient components keep UAS/UAVs aloft and propel them through their environments. NXP has pioneered advanced motor controllers, actuators and power MOSFETs under the hood in automotive for over 30 years and offers a range of solutions.

In addition to automotive processors, state-of-the-art Kinetis processors also include CANbus communications for sensorless field-oriented control (FOC), and Advanced Disturbance Rejection Control (ADRC) control algorithms at unprecedented value points. NXP motor controllers and actuator drivers offer rich possibilities for every UAV application. The breadth of the portfolio allows developers to balance the right cost, target performance and security requirements.

If processors are the brains of the system, then MOSFETs are the muscle, converting intricate control signals into precise, powerful motion. NXP’s high-performance power devices offer the perfect combination of reliable, high current performance in small, lightweight packages. Available in a range of voltages to suit all battery configurations.
