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.

This paper provides an overview of PID (proportional, integral, derivative) based servo motor tuning, and introduces two manual tuning methods.
New Prodigy motion control boards with pre-installed UDPM provide amplifier and synchronized contouring for DC Brush, Brushless DC, and step motor applications.
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.
Learn about which motion profiles work best for which applications, and how modest changes in the profile parameter settings can create big improvements in throughput.
Machine designers are often asked to build systems that take up less space and operate on less power. Read about new developments in motors, sensors, and architectures.
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.
