Founder and V.P. of Engineering
Chuck Lewin is the Founder and V.P. of Engineering of Performance Motion Devices Inc. In 1992 Lewin developed a motion control on an IC — technology to found PMD. In less than a year, the company released its first IC multi-axis motion processor with functions previously only on board-level motion control products. In 2013, the company launched a new digital-amplifier line in its drive family. Today, the company manufactures motion controls for servo, microstep, and step motors with CANbus, serial, and parallel communications — and capable of S-curves, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing as well as six-step and sinusoidal commutation and field oriented control.
