Recreational Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones have become a popular device for a wide variety of users. Recreational drones range from small indoor quadcopters to larger high-end drones equipped with video cameras. They also include the popular racing drones developed around open source software platforms which allowing the user to implement a range of performances and design customization options. A major challenge in drones design is the tradeoff between mechanical design and associated weight versus the target flying time. This is where the electronics and semiconductors make the difference allowing designers to optimize their design.

ST offers solutions covering the full Bill of Materials (BOM) for drones. Our microcontrollers are market leader in UAV applications and are compatible with most of the open source firmware for both Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC) and Flight Control Units (FCU). Our sensors support key functions such flight stabilization, altitude control, obstacle avoidance and autonomous navigation. We also offer motor control, precision amplifiers, battery management systems and connectivity solutions to complete any drone design. Our design tools and development boards support creators in optimizing any design challenge and our online community is an appreciated resource for the students, hobbyists and professionals.
