Performance Motion Devices technology is a core component of FDA-approved equipment manufactured by leading lab automation and healthcare industry OEMs.


We use digital checksum functionality in the motion control between our integrated circuits (ICs) and digital amplifiers. Our inherently safe interfaces prevent lab and medical devices from careening out of control in response to invalid or random inputs – a danger that traditional analog amplifier-equipped systems cannot guard against.

Performance Motion Devices was recently recognizes as a Top 20 Medical Devices Design & Solutions Provider.
