This paper provides an overview of PID (proportional, integral, derivative) based servo motor tuning, and introduces two manual tuning methods.
In this issue, motion control design choices (Build vs Buy), new single-axis ICs with profile generation and servo control, and how using a digital current loop will quiet step motor noise.
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.
MC58113 single-axis motion control ICs provide trajectory profile generation, programmable breakpoints, advanced performance trace, and many other motion control functions.
