The very high performance required in advanced drone designs is well catered for by the STM32F7 family of microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics, which are based on the ARM® Cortex®-M7 processor core.
Taking advantage of ST’s ART AcceleratorTM as well as an L1 cache, STM32F7 microcontrollers deliver the maximum theoretical performance of the ARM Cortex-M7 core, whether code is executed from embedded Flash or external memory: 1082 CoreMark or 462DMIPS at a clock speed of 216MHz.
Despite their high performance, the STM32F7 MCUs make efficient use of the battery power on which a drone runs. Power performance is rated at 7 CoreMark/mW at 1.8V. In Stop mode with all context and SRAM saved, the MCU draws just 100μA.
• Camera interface (except STM32F7x3/F7x2)
