Abstract

We demonstrate a battery-powered multi-chip system optimized for insect-scale flapping wing robots that meets the tight weight limit and real-time performance demands of autonomous flight. Measured results show open-loop wing flapping driven by a power electronics unit and energy efficiency improvements via hardware acceleration.
