Mitochondrik with the EMI shield and without it

Mitochondrik

Integrated sensorless PMSM/BLDC motor controller chip for UAV and robotic propulsion systems; supports FOC, sine wave drive, vector control.

Mitochondrik is an integrated module (like integrated circuit) that enables third-party hardware engineers to design sophisticated custom motor controllers using our cutting-edge motor control technology – Télega. With Mitochondrik, a regular hardware engineer without prior experience with motor control applications can design a custom field-oriented control ESC (also known as sine wave drive, or vector control) in a few days.

Mitochondrik reduces the time to market and the required engineering expertise for vehicle designers, while allowing to keep manufacturing of key components in-house, thus maintaining a high level of vertical integration.

Features

  • Built-in step-down DC-DC converter, MOSFET driver, and the MCU running the Telega motor control solution.
  • Compatible with any PMSM/BLDC motor.
  • Supported supply voltages: 4–12 SLi-ion (10-51 VDC).
  • Continuous power output up to 5 kW.
  • Supported communication interfaces:
    • High-speed UART, for board-level communication.
    • USB CDC ACM (driverless compatiblity with GNU/Linux, MS Windows, OSX).
    • CAN bus (UAVCAN).
    • Standard RC PWM.

Availability

Mitochondrik is currently available for approved early adopters only. The market release is planned for January 2019.

If you are interested to become an early adopter, please, contact us.

Data logging overloading UAVCAN BUS

Hello, Is it possible for the ESC to generate less data packets? We are seeing the issue were we have too many data packets on the bus and are overloading the UAVCAN logger and whilst trying to parse these packets it is taking exponentially longer to process each data packet compared to the real tim…

Any plans on developing more powerful motor controllers with position sensor support?

Hi! Orel and Myxa are great products. Especially due to support of UAVCAN. Any plans on developing more powerful stuff with support for position sensors (Hall sensors at least) and with torque control mode? I would like to see those integrated in solutions like unicycle. Which requires voltages up t…
