Learn More about Harmony’s Drone Application

In drone applications, Crystal resonators (XTALs), and Crystal oscillators (XOs) are utilized for various purposes related to timing, synchronization, and accurate frequency generation. Here are some specific examples of how timing frequency devices are used in drone applications.

  • Flight control systems: Generate reliable clock signals that synchronize the operation of various flight control modules, including gyroscopes, accelerometers, and navigation systems.  This ensure reliable flight, and responsive control.

  • GNSS receivers: Provide accurate timing references for synchronization with satellite signals, enabling accurate positioning, navigation, and altitude determination. This allows the drone to maintain its intended flight path and accurately respond to control commands.

  • Communication systems: Time-frequency devices are used in the transceivers and wireless modules to provide accurate timing signals for data transmission and reception, ensuring reliable and efficient communication between the drone and ground control stations or other devices. This is particularly important for real-time control commands and data exchange.

  • Imaging and Sensing systems: Drones are commonly equipped with imaging and sensing systems, such as cameras, LiDAR, and other sensors. Timing frequency devices are employed in these systems to synchronize the capture, processing, and transmission of data ensuring precise timing alignment for accurate image and data acquisition.

  • Data logging and Telemetry: Provide accurate timekeeping for recording flight data, sensor readings, and telemetry information. This enables precise synchronization between recorded data and corresponding flight events, facilitating post-flight analysis, troubleshooting, and performance evaluation.
