Prodigy Motion Boards

Prodigy® Motion Boards provide high-performance board-level motion control for scientific, automation, industrial, and robotic applications. Available in PCI, PC/104, stand-alone, and machine controller configurations, these boards support multiple motor Brushless DC, step, and DC Brush motors, and are available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis configurations. Programmable versions of the board include PMD’s C-Motion Engine (CME) that allows user code to run directly on the board, off-loading the system host or enabling stand-alone operation.

Based on PMD’s industry-leading Magellan® Motion Processor, our boards provide user-selectable profile modes including S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing with on-the-fly parameter change. Servo loop compensation utilizes a full 32-bit position error, PID with velocity and acceleration feedforward, integration limit and dual biquad filters for sophisticated control of complex loads. The Machine controller version has on-card Atlas amplifiers that eliminate the need for external amplifiers along with enhanced analog and digital I/O.

Included with every Prodigy Motion Board, the Pro-Motion GUI makes it easy to set up and analyze system parameters and motion performance. PMD’s C-Motion and VB-Motion libraries simplify the program development process and allow the use of industry standard C/C++ or Visual Basic programming languages.

PMD's Prodigy ®/CME Stand-Alone Motion Boards provide machine designers the capability to download and run motion programs directly on Prodigy Boards. This new capability off-loads the PC host and increases the flexibility to distribute motion programs throughout the machine. Programs can be downloaded to the Prodigy board over UDP and TCP Ethernet protocols, in addition to serial and CANbus protocols. They communicate via 16-bit parallel, Ethernet, serial, and CANbus. PMD’s Prodigy/CME Stand-Alone Motion Boards offer high-performance motion control for scientific, automation, industrial, and robotic applications. These motion control cards support multiple motor types, including Brushless DC, step, and DC Brush. Prodigy/CME Stand-Alone boards are available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis versions.
