Perform with high speed, high precision

Semiconductor Equipment And The Ultimate Motion Control Challenge

Semiconductor equipment represents the ultimate motion control challenge, requiring incredible precision, high throughput, and extreme reliability. For today's global semiconductor providers Performance Motion Devices answers the call. We provide motion control ICs, modules, and boards for wafer handling robots, spin coaters, material transport. We solve motion problems in ION beam implanters, vacuum pumps, nanometer-scale XY positioning, and provide a multitude of solutions for metrology, lithography, inspection, and back end processing.

Performance Motion Devices has the motion control components and software you need to design and build your semiconductor capital equipment 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.


Wondering which of our motion control ICs, modules, or boards will work best for your upcoming equipment design project? 

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 Semiconductor Equipment design challenge.

High-performance semiconductor machines

Solutions in lithography, metrology, XY positioning, wafer robotics, and back-end automation

PMD is the motion control provider of choice for today's wafer handling robotics, XY positioning stages, metrology stations, and more. Whether semiconductor companies work with PMD's products directly or with our partner provider solutions, PMD's motion control at its core means incredible performance, high reliability, and ultra-safe operation.

“The main thing is we could get to market faster, because [PMD allowed] us to focus our efforts in other areas and not have to focus … on trajectory generators, PID loops, [and] motion engine type of things...”
