Whether in the industrial, military or aerospace markets, the need for motion control is universal. A motion control application involves a motor that imparts motion requiring linear and/or rotational precision. Examples might be a vision system along a PCB manufacturing line or a motor controlling a tank turret. While motion control was at one time left to "specialized"circuits and tuned to a specific requirement, processors have made great strides offering the processing power and ease of programming such that many of today's motor control requirements can be met.

Curtiss-Wright is the premier provider of COTS boards and systems to the military and aerospace markets. Among our most popular products are DSPs (Digital Signal Processors). Curtiss-Wright DSPs are available in 6U VME and 6U and 3U VPX format, supporting both Freescale™- and Intel®-based designs and FPGA-based designs. They are also available in XMC/PMC (mezzanine card) formats. These products, coupled with Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS), are ideal choices for a wide variety of motion control applications.
