PCD-4511 - New Single-Axis Control Chip from Nippon Pulse


Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd., Radford, VA - (December 21, 2001) Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd. (NPM) introduces a new single-axis control chip known as the PCD-451 1.

The PCD-4511 single-axis motion control chip is designed for 2-phase unipolar or bipolar stepper motors. The PCD-4511 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 the PCD-4511 (44-pin QFP package) are simultaneous start and stop, linear or S-curve acceleration and deceleration, idling pulse output for start and various limit signals.

The PCD-4511 makes multi-axis stepper motor systems easier and more cost effective to use. The price for one unit is $9.18. The manual for the PCD-4511 is available in electronic format. Major applications for this product are high-end office automation, 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. Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd., is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The US Branch Office in Radford, Virginia handles the Sales and Marketing for North America.
