Title: Key Design Component for Surgical and Mobile Robots: Miniature Servo Drives

Abstract: The market for robotics is pushing the servo drive from an external robot controller to an integrated robotic servo joint. The once centralized requirements, functions, and features are now being pushed into the servo joint with increased responsibilities. Aside from working with haptic sensor inputs, dual absolute encoders, regen output, and certified safety functions, Copley has also been working on overheating challenges that come with miniaturization and increased power requirements. To overcome these power density challenges, Copley has developed improved heat conductive methods using copper ENIG (Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold) substrate for FET mounting that removes heat directly.  Combining this with Copley’s 99% PWM output efficiency technology we can now operate with the increased power density in ever higher temperature environments.
