The DSP Series provides C-programmable PC Card controllers that incorporate a digital signal processor from Analog Devices to provide up to 4 or 8 axes of servo and stepper control.

Limited availability outside North America



  • 4 or 8 axes of servo or stepper control in a single PC slot
  • 16-bit servo outputs, encoder inputs up to 5 MHz, and 48 lines of opto-isolated user I/O
  • DSP provides a rich set of software algorithms, including a sophisticated second-order PID control algorithm with velocity, acceleration, and friction feed-forward
  • Advanced features include electronic gearing and camming, dual-loop control, circular and linear interpolation, and trapezoidal, S-curve, parabolic and custom motion profiles
  • Fast host communication across PCI bus
  • Shielded high-density connectors
  • 550 kHz step/direction output
  • Point-to-point and coordinated motion


  • Enables division of labor between the DSP for numerically intensive real-time functions and the host for higher-level, non-real-time commands to maximize system performance
  • Flexible DSP architecture allows on-the-fly changes to many motion parameters
  • Kollmorgen’s C function libraries provide over 250 motion control functions to simplify programming the DSP and ensure quality
  • Standard compilers from Microsoft, Borland, Watcom, and others can be used to speed development of complex motion applications
