Mouser Electronics to distribute Performance Motion Devices products

Mouser Electronics has announced a global distribution agreement with Performance Motion Devices, Inc. (PMD), a provider of high-performance ICs, boards and drive-based motion control solutions

Mouser now distributes PMD's Magellan, Juno, ION, and ATLAS families of motor control devices. The Magellan Family of motion control ICs provide advanced motion control for medical, scientific, automation, industrial, and robotic applications. The Magellan ICs are offered in three series: The MC58000 Series positioning motion control ICs for brushless DC (BLDC), DC brush and step motors and MC55000 Series pulse and direction output ICs for step motors are both available in 1- through 4-axis packages. The MC58113 Series positioning motion control ICs feature integrated current control for BLDC, DC brush and step motors in a single-axis package.

The Juno Family is the industry's first range of compact velocity and torque control ICs with full four-quadrant motion control, direct input quadrature encoder, profile generation, and advanced current control. The ICs are stated to provide advanced velocity and torque control for BLDC, DC brush, and step motors in medical, scientific, industrial, and robotic applications that need to minimize motor noise, vibration and power consumption. Mouser says that Juno ICs are easy to deploy with embedded motion commands, on-board intelligence, and direct analog and digital amplifier signal interfacing.

ION digital drives are compact, fully enclosed modules that are said to provide high-performance motion control, network connectivity and power amplification. The ION digital drives are built on the Magellan motion control IC, providing, says Mouser, a powerful instruction set to control the motion application, monitor performance, and synchronise overall drive behaviour. Mouser afforms that the ION modules suitable for medical, scientific, semiconductor, robotic, industrial and other automation applications: they are available in 500 W and 3000 W options.

ATLAS digital amplifiers are compact single-axis amplifiers that are stated to provide high-performance torque control for DC brush, BLDC, and step motors. ATLAS digital amplifiers use PMD's proprietary digital current control and switching technology for exceptional efficiency and quiet motor operation in a compact, solderable module. Mouser confirms that the ATLAS range works seamlessly with Magellan motion control ICs and can also be used with dedicated FPGAs, digital signal processors, or general-purpose microprocessors.
