Advanced Position Control Now Available on InstaSPIN(TM)-MOTION

Advanced Position Control Now Available on InstaSPIN(TM)-MOTION 
CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 11/21/13 --  LineStream
Technologies is adding on-chip position control expertise to the
InstaSPIN(TM)-MOTION software suite. Launched in collaboration with
Texas Instruments (TI) in April 2013, InstaSPIN-MOTION originally
focused on improving performance and design simplicity of sensorless
speed control applications by embedding motor control software
expertise on chip. With the addition of advanced position control to
InstaSPIN-MOTION, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can
minimize time spent on speed and position loop calibration and focus
on improving the performance and reliability of their products and
accelerating their time-to-market. Additionally, expanding the
InstaSPIN-MOTION software suite to include position control extends
the ease of use and performance benefits to all motor control
applications, sensored or sensorless, speed and/or position control.  
With the addition of position control, applications that demand
precision, including but not limited to packaging, robotics, medical
devices, surveillance, material handling, and gimbal systems, will
benefit from previously unattainable accuracy."InstaSPIN-MOTION
solves several longstanding inefficiencies in motor control design
and implementation," said TI Motor Control Application Team Lead,
Dave Wilson. "This solution enables engineers to define complex
motion sequences and position profiles in minutes and tune their
systems with minimal effort."  
New position control features in InstaSPIN-MOTION include a
disturbance-rejecting position plus speed controller with single
parameter tuning. With these capabilities InstaSPIN-MOTION: 


 
--  Simplifies the design process with LineStream's single parameter speed
    and position tuning, enabling developers to quickly and easily
    optimize system performance.
--  Streamlines the design process with existing encoder software
    calibration and conversions.
--  Improves accuracy and minimizes mechanical system duress by actively
    estimating and compensating for system disturbances in real-time.
--  Executes complex position sequences with intuitive trajectory
    generation (trapezoidal, S-curve, continuous-jerk ST-curve).
--  Smooths the transition between positions with a proprietary profile
    generator, which optimizes the profile based on start state, desired
    state, and designer-configured system limitations for speed,
    acceleration and jerk.
--  Provides insight into system dynamics by automatically identifying
    inertia.

  
This software solution with position control is enabled by special
libraries on TI's C2000(TM) Piccolo(TM) F2806x microcontrollers.
Designers can get started utilizing InstaSPIN-MOTION with position
control through a MotorWare(TM) software update which works with the
following evaluation kits from Texas Instruments: DRV8312-69M-KIT,
DRV8301-69M-KIT and TMDSHVMTRINSPIN. 
LineStream Technologies
 LineStream is an embedded software company,
addressing the challenges of traditional control algorithms, such as
PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) control, with intuitive
software that optimizes the behavior of automated products and
processes. With core technology that is differentiated,
patent-protected, and ready-to-deploy, LineStream's software has been
developed for rapid implementation across platforms. LineStream has
partnered with Texas Instrument and jointly launched InstaSPIN-MOTION in April 2013. InstaSPIN-MOTION has generated huge market
acclaim.
