Motion Chip controls four axes at a time.

Press Release Summary:



PCD-4541 4-axis motion control chip is for 2-phase unipolar or bipolar stepper motors. Sequence logic for full and half step modes is built-in, so it can output CW/CCW pulses or excitation signals directly to drive chips. Chip provides independent axis control, simultaneous start and stop of all axes, linear or S-curve acceleration and deceleration, speed change on the fly, idling pulse output for start and various limit signals.

PCD-4541 - New 4-axis Control Chip from Nippon Pulse

Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd. (NPM) introduces a new 4-axis control chip known as the PCD-4541.

The PCD-4541 is a 4-axis motion control chip designed for 2 phase unipolar or bipolar stepper motors. The PCD-4541 can output CW/CCW pulses or excitation signals directly to drive chips since sequence logic for full and half step modes is built-in. The main features of PCD-4541 (l00 pin OFP package) are 4 independent axes control, simultaneous start and stop of all axes, linear or S-curve acceleration and deceleration, speed change on the fly, idling pulse output for start and various limit signals.

PCD-4541makes multi-axis stepper motor systems easier and cost effective. When you order 500 pieces, the unit price is just $18.00.

Major applications for this product are semiconductor manufacturing and inspection equipment, robots, analyzers, medical examination equipment, and automatic handling equipment

Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd., offers various high-pulse generator chips to cover almost any stepper motor control application as well as hybrid and tin-can stepper motors.., Ltd., is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The US Branch Office in Radford, Virginia handles the Sales and Marketing for North America.
