Magellan® Family

The Magellan® Family of Motion Control ICs provides high-performance chip-based motion control for multiple motor types. Available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis versions, these flexible and programmable devices control Brushless DC, step, and DC Brush motors. Magellan ICs are designed for demanding applications such as medical automation, general automation, and scientific instrumentation. They can be used directly in your own control board designs, or via PMD's module, drive, and board products, where they form the motion control core of each of these devices.

MC58113 Single-axis Positioning Motion Control IC with Current Control

Our Magellan® MC58113 Motion Control IC provides high-performance motion control with an integrated digital current loop for medical, scientific, robotic, and automation applications. Available as a single, one-axis IC, the MC58113 IC is a programmable device that provides positioning, velocity, and torque control for Brushless DC, step, and DC Brush motors. This versatile and powerful IC provides profile generation, servo-loop closure, commutation, and pulse and direction output along with direct quadrature encoder input. Advanced digital current control and amplifier switch signal generation technology provides smooth, ultra-quiet operation – particularly useful for eliminating the noise associated with step motors.
