And don't forget that our broad range of motion control products, including ICs, digital amplifiers, digital drives, and boards, will get your next design project to market faster.


Wondering how to best control motion for a lab automation system you are designing?

Contact us and tell us about it. We'd love to explore how our custom or turn-key ICs, modules, and boards, can best meet your Healthcare design challenge.



ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 CERTIFIED

PMD is a core component of FDA-approved equipment in more than half of the world's largest lab automation manufacturers.

We use digital checksum functionality to construct inherently safe interfaces that 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.


"Relying on performance Motion Devices hardware and motion expertise …  We designed a lower-cost and more powerful motion controller for our holmium laser-based system used in vision correction."
