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. Or for a more integrated solution try our ION/CME N-Series Digital Drive which provides a fully integrated single-axis motion control drive in an ultra-compact PCB-mountable package.

We have 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.

Stepper Servo for Robotics

New Control Technique Combines Servo Performance With Step Motor Cost

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.

Feedforward in Motion Control

Feedforward in Motion Control - Vital for Improving Positioning Accuracy

Even if your PID settings are carefully optimized, the motion at the end effector is never perfect. This paper looks at feedforward and how it delivers accuracy and smoothness.
