About This Webinar

A barrier to increased flight time has been the inefficiency of turning a drone's propellers. Join Kristen and Kevin as they discuss solutions for drone electronic speed controllers (ESCs) that will help manufacturers create drones with longer flight times and a smoother and more stable performance. In this session designers can learn how to add gauging, protection, balancing and charging capabilities to any existing drone design to improve flight time.

Reference designs:


Breakthrough battery management for your drone:
2S1P Battery Management System (BMS) reference design transforms a drone’s battery pack into a smart diagnostic black box recorder that accurately monitors remaining capacity and protects the Li-Ion battery throughout its entire lifetime. Designers can use the drone BMS reference design to add gauging, protection, balancing and charging capabilities to any existing drone design and improve flight time. The design also features a battery charge controller and a high-efficiency DC/DC converter to achieve high-efficiency power conversion efficiency.  It also leverages the fuel gauge to accurately measure remaining capacity over the entire life of the battery.


High-speed motor performance for propeller efficiency:
Sensorless High-Speed Field Oriented Control Reference Design for Drone Electronic Speed Control helps electronic speed controllers achieve the highest possible efficiency with performance for speeds more than 12,000 rpm (> 1.2kHz electrical), including fast-speed reversal capability for more stable roll movement. This means longer flight times and more smooth and stable performance.
