Performance Motion Devices began as the classic American startup – built on ideas and excellence. They were founded in 1992 on a simple but powerful idea: high-performance motion control on an IC. PMD’s breakthrough product paired the advantages of IC packaging with sophisticated PC-based motion control functions previously available only from PLCs. This eliminated the need for product developers to build their own motion software from scratch, and offered unprecedented design and packaging flexibility. Today, PMD’s continued commitment to IC-level solutions is reflected in our company tagline, “Motion control at its core.” PMD’s pioneering multi-motor ICs and modules allow quick changes in motor types without the need to re-spin boards.
