The cooperation between Infineon and MCI has already existed for two years in the fields of research and development, teaching, study projects and internships.
Within the context of a student project supervised by experts from both establishments, an Infineon system solution for multicopters was taken from the concept study to market readiness within a very short time.
The multicopter contains a total of 53 components, most of which were developed in Austria. The first prototypes were also ready presented by Infineon to customers and experts in Asia and America with great success. The project looked into whether the XMC series microcontroller produced by Infineon, which is a chip with integrated interfaces for measuring and controlling industrial applications, might also be suitable for guiding quadcopters. This involved integrating ultramodern sensor technology as well as the flight control systems and drive technology.
