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 September 2019.
