New Product: Motion-Control IC For Stepmotors

Feb. 21, 2008
The M3000 motion-control IC handles time-critical motion and motor tasks in silicon to control and position multiphase stepmotors.

The IC uses an integrated, mixed signal systemon- a-chip architecture that combines major motion and motor-control building blocks while simultaneously working as a high-speed, general-purpose microcontroller. It incorporates extensive communication, analog, and system functions for general machine control. Operating range of the M3000 is –40 to 85°C.
