This manual describes the electrical characteristics of the MC58113, MC53113, MC51113, and MC54113 motion control IC from PMD. These devices are members of PMD’s Magellan IC family.
The MC58113-series ICs are complete chip-based motion controllers. They provide trajectory generation, programmable breakpoints, advanced performance trace, and many related motion control functions. Depending on the type of motor controlled, they provide servo-loop closure, on-board commutation for brushless motors, and pulse and direction output. Finally, the MC58113-series ICs provide advanced digital current control along with numerous amplifier management features.
The MC58113-series ICs together with other Magellan ICs provide a software-compatible family of dedicated motion control ICs which can handle a large variety of system configurations. Having similar hardware and command architecture enable Magellan ICs to share software commands, so that software written for one may be re-used with another; even though the type of motor may be different.
