We have an electronics apprentice and we are looking for a couple of interesting PSoC 5 applications to get his interest. I came across a Cypress Video for the their quadcopter demo and have been trying to get more of the design files to allow us to give this to our apprentice as a project. There is a Bill Of Materials published for components for the main PCB but, as far as I could see, there are no PCB or other design files or information about any of the other parts.
We have a 3D printer as well so could potentially produce all of the custom parts if we could get more information.
Can anybody point me in the direction of a link or person who could help?
The Cypress drone project which I could see life at embedded world in Nuremberg a few years ago was focused on motor control. The PSoC5 was controlling four brushless dc motors by sensing the reverse current to calculate position information. Quite a complex matter to understand.
The copter project I supplied formerly was mainly built to implement a working control algorithm developed by Mahoney and Madwick. The project and the underlying hardware were even able to control an octocopter and reading the rc sum-signal.
