Performance Motion Devices Inc. has released a motion processor with surface-mount CMOS technology that offers single-axis control in one chip. The MC3110, the first in the Pilot family of products, is a 132-pin device designed to control brushed servomotors. It is driven by a host microprocessor that accepts input parameters such as position, velocity and acceleration to generate trajectory. An instruction set has more than 130 commands for versatility in application programming, and user-selectable profiling modes enable S-curve, trapezoidal and velocity contouring. Trace capabilities provide on-the-fly data storage for analyzing system performance, tuning servo filters, and performing maintenance and diagnostics.
