The PCI-8174 four-axis stepper and servo motion control card from ADLINK Technology Inc., Irvine, CA, has an onboard DSP with motion ASIC for simplified implementation of time-critical motion sequences. The card can operate as a stand-alone controller by executing all processes in the hardware layer while simultaneously executing a sequence via the motion ASIC. Features include pulse output rates up to 6.55 MHz, software security protection, a card index switch for multiple cards in a system, serial connectivity for multiple axes among multiple cards, and on-the-fly speed and position change while the axis is in motion.
