MCX314As: 4-axis motor control chip for stepper motors with interpolation function

MCX314As is a cost-effective high performance motion control IC designed for stepper motor or pulse type servo drivers with position, velocity and interpolation controls. This intelligent single chip offers s-curve/trapezoidal accelration/deceleration, target position and velocity changes on the fly, built-in 32bit linear/circular interpolation control, automatic home search and built-in integral type filter.
Every function of the MCX314As is controlled by specific registers, which are command registers, data registers, status registers and mode registers


MCX314AL: 4-axis motor control chip for stepper motors with interpolation function

MCX314AL offers low operation voltage +3.3V/DC for small power consumption. Its functions are exactly same as MCX314As. So it’s cost-effective high performance motion control IC designed for stepper motor or pulse type servo drivers with position, velocity and interpolation controls. This intelligent single chip offers s-curve/trapezoidal acceleration/deceleration, target position and velocity changes on the fly, built-in 32bit linear/circular interpolation control, automatic home search and built-in integral type filter. Every function of the MCX314AL is controlled by specific registers, which are command registers, data registers, status registers and mode registers.
