Performance Motion Devices, Inc. (PMD Corp.) was founded in 1992 on a simple but powerful idea: high-performance motion control on an IC. Our breakthrough product paired the advantages of IC packaging with sophisticated PC-based motion control functions previously available only from Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). This advanced motion control technology eliminated the need for product developers to build their own motion software from scratch and offered unprecedented design and packaging flexibility.
Today, PMD Corp. provides a full line of high-performance motion control solutions for single and multi-axis motion control of servo and step motors. Our products include positioning and motion control ICs (integrated circuits), digital amplifiers and drives, and motor control boards—all with easy to understand C-based source code built in. What’s more, our robust Developer Kits will speed product prototyping with concurrent software and hardware development. OEMs and engineering teams worldwide trust PMD Corp. when they design and build precision motion control robotics and automation systems.
