Look inside the NXP drone world and you’ll find a system solution loaded with components from across the company. We have what’s needed to power future drones and rovers safely, securely and reliably.
Learn about robotic vehicles by participating in www.Hovergames.com challenges and using the HoverGames drone kit and add-on components below.
The first starter developer kit (KIT-HGDRONEK66) includes components for a base platform. A LiPo battery and telemetry radio specific to your country is to be purchased separately. A 180 MHz Kinetis Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU is used in the flight controller. On board is an IMU (accelerometer, gyro, magnetometer) and included are 2x CAN-bus, and 2 wire automotive Ethernet in additional to standard PWM outputs, I2C, SPI, and UARTS.
Additional peripherals and add-on components shown here enhance the capability of your robotic system.
