Delivery UAVs

Delivery UAVs must safely and securely deliver goods to their intended recipients wherever they are located. The longer the range and ability to handle heavier and larger loads, the more productive these UAVs can be. Because they can operate in congested and complex areas, they must be absolutely safe. They need to incorporate redundancies on multiple layers to avoid harming people, damaging property, or losing their valuable cargo. That requires providing power to redundant systems like motors, GPS for navigation, vision systems, and other sensors for flight and flight termination.

The power delivery network

Power dense and lightweight ZVS Buck and Buck-Boost products are ideally suited to enable delivery UAVs to extend their flight times without taking up valuable payload space and weight. PI37xx and PI33xx products are so dense that designers can include multiple point-of-load converters to save on cabling while powering multiple devices with multiple power buses to create the redundancy needed to ensure safe and reliable delivery operations.
