3 ways we can help you accelerate development 


1. High-performance motion control ICs, modules, and boards

Whether you use Brushless DC, DC Brush, or step motors in your design, we have the high-performance motion control solutions you need to build equipment that delivers perfect speed, precision, and smoothness.

Motion Control ICs

Motion Control ICs (Integrated Circuits)

Performance Motion Devices ICs are ideal for machine designs that require precise position, velocity, and torque control. Our motion control chips come with everything you need to optimize system performance. When you rely on our integrated circuits, you will get to market fast, and stay there.

Atlas Digital Amplifiers

Digital Amplifiers

If you are looking for high power output functionality with an advanced digital control loop and amplification, look no further. Our robust, ultra-compact digital amplifiers are your turnkey solution.

Standalone Drives

Digital Drives

PMD stand-alone drives deliver intelligence and power in a compact package. Our drives support Brushless DC, DC Brush, and Step motors. These compact, fully enclosed motion drives come in two overall power configurations - providing 500 Watts and 3,000 Watts of power amplification in a compact DIN-mountable package.

Motion Control Boards

Motion Control Boards

PMD's motion control boards provide from one to four axes of control, and user-selectable profile modes including S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing. Servo loop compensation utilizes a full 32-bit position error, PID with velocity and acceleration feedforward, integration limit, and dual bi-quad filters for sophisticated control of complex loads.

Developer Kits

Developer Kits

Start-up, tune, and optimize with intuitive, easy-to-use Developer Kits. Developer Kits come complete with motion control boards, software, documentation, and accessories which will significantly reduce product design time.


2. Easy-to-use motion control development tools

Pro-Motion® Setup Axis Wizard—rapidly set up, tune, and test motion control systems

Our easy-to-use Pro-Motion Windows-based exerciser and data capture program offers ready-to-go capabilities your entire development team will be able to share. A step-by-step axis wizard allows designers to quickly and easily tune position loop, current loop, and field-oriented control motor parameters.

Motion control language

Windows-based software that allows you to rapidly setup, tune, and test your motion control application.


3. A single common motion language

C-Motion® Language—user friendly, yet incredibly advanced

We’ve invested years of engineering in the creation of C-Motion—our powerful easy-to-use C-based motion language. Plus, to make your work easier, we’ve created an extensive library of callable routines and error handlers that provide you with all the source code you need for communicating to our motion control ICs, boards and digital drives.

Tested and perfected over years of use and thousands of applications, C-Motion is well documented and works beautifully—with little massaging and no cryptic commands to memorize. Plus it can be easily ported to your preferred microprocessor.
