Performance Motion Devices announced the launch of its Juno outer loop control ICs for use in medical, industrial and military applications.
The Westford, Mass.-based company’s new Juno product joins a portfolio of velocity and toque control ICs (integrated circuits) used for spindle control, centrifuge control, precision torque control and other liquid handling and laboratory automation applications.
PMD’s Juno outer loop control IC uses digital logic integration and algorithms to help control pressure, temperature, liquid level, magnetic bearings and other outer loop quantities for medical, industrial and military use.
“PMD’s new Juno outer loop control IC is a completely novel product that answers the growing call for integrated control ICs that apply advanced algorithms to control pressure, temperature, chemical reactions, and other critical applications,” PMD founder & CEO Chuck Lewin said in a news release. “By integrating outer loop control with motor velocity and torque control functions, what previously may have required as many as three separate ICs can now be achieved in a single compact IC package.”
The Juno outer loop control ICs are available immediately in 64-pin TQFP packaging measuring 12mm-by-12mm and priced from $23, depending on motor type controlled and quantity. Juno developer kits start at $195.
