Create Innovative Robotics Applications

The Robotics Revolution Is Creating Something Truly New

Robotics and adaptive automation is a fast-moving field requiring the very latest in motion control technology solutions. Mobile and airborne systems require ultra-low power operation from motion ICs and motor drives, while automated factory applications demand advanced path planning, data gathering, and choice of communication protocols.

Performance Motion Devices answers the call for advanced robotics and automation solutions with state-of-the-art torque control and positioning ICs that helps you squeeze the most out of your system's Brushless DC, DC Brush, and Step motors. Our industry-leading motion trace features allow you to analyze and optimize from the ground up and beyond—from the torque motion profile used to control each wheel all the way to the health and utilization of the entire robot fleet.

Performance Motion Devices has the motion control components and software you need to design and build your robotic system faster, with more performance, and at a lower cost. We understand your challenges and offer a range of easy-to-deploy motion control solutions, such as integrated circuits (ICs), digital drives, digital amplifiers, and motion control boards that will meet your application requirements and help you outcompete the other guys.

Automation and Robotics Motion Control

Robotics demands compact, low power solutions that can be brought to market quickly

All of PMD's products are available in Developer Kit form, helping you get going quickly and easily. Pro-Motion, PMD's powerful motor setup and motion analysis tool has helped thousands of companies build their new products faster, with higher performance, and greater motion stability than they thought possible. C-Motion is PMD's common motion language that eliminates two-letter codes and provides easy to read commands and full axis virtualization.

“The designs are simple and straightforward... that’s an important piece of information for someone that doesn’t have a history with PMD.”
