The Prodigy/CME PCI motion cards now have board-level C-Motion programming, expanded design flexibility, and extended connectivity options.

Designers can download and run motion programs directly on the cards. This new capability off-loads the PC host and increases the flexibility to distribute motion programs throughout the machine. These motion-control cards support multiple motor types, including dcbrush and brushless, microstepping, and stepmotors. The Prodigy/CME PCI cards are designed in surface-mount technology and come in one, two, three, and four-axis versions.

The Prodigy cards provide userselectable profile modes including S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing. Servoloop compensation uses a full 32-bit position error, PID with velocity and acceleration feed-forward, and integration limit and dual biquad filters for complex-load control.
