Distributed Control of a PM Brushless Motor
In this paper a novel technique which combines sinusoidal PM machine drive technology with distributed control systems has been implemented to obtain a linear servo machine which can control multiple moving elements over unlimited linear distances at high position accuracies.

Distributed Motion Control for Robotics Applications
This paper discusses the application of an intelligent power and motion control module or robotics systems. A single DSP is used to close both current and position loops for 3 axes in a compact package. By communicating commands over a serial network the user can mount the intelligent power modules close to the motors instead of in a control panel.

Sensorless Drive Theory of Operation
The DPDLite™ controller is capable of spinning certain BLDC motors without the need for sensors to provide commutation information. Once the shaft of the motor is spinning sufficiently fast the induced speed voltage caused by the time varying magnetic flux linking the stator windings can be measured by the controller.
