Our multi-axis motion controls ICs make synchronization between axes a snap. Ask us about custom versions of our IC products that provide continuous path generation and cross-linked servo compensation terms for ultra-precise XYZ path control. PMD's single-axis ICs such as the MC58113 provide a hardware synch signal, making it possible to use these products for coordinated multi-axis applications as well.

The Juno MC71113, MC73113, and MC78113 are newly released ICs that provide velocity control of 3-phase Brushless DC and DC Brush motors with advanced features such as PI velocity loop control, programmable velocity estimation, and more.
Step motors are known to be noisy and tend to vibrate when moving. This deep dive explains how you can reduce, and in some cases eliminate, step motor noise & vibration problems.
When it comes to step motors, a new drive technique called stepper servo has some engineers believing they have found the holy grail of positioning motion control - the high performance of a servo motor with the low cost of a step motor.
In addition to providing smoother motion, S-curve motion profiles improve point to point transfer speeds by letting you tune the profile to the load. Learn how to achieve smoother motion using S-curve profiles which a vital tool for improving point to point transfer speeds.
Here we look at four important trends in motion control technology for applications involving medical and laboratory equipment. Underlying all four trends are rapid and radical changes in the cost of computing power and amplifier electronics.
