Advantech's PCI-1220U is a 2-axis Universal PCI stepping/pulse-type servo motor control card. This card adopts NOVA MCX312 IC which supports 2-axis motion control with interpolations. Besides, functions like continuous interpolation, programmable T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration, constant speed control are also accomplished. For users that only need to drive two motors at most, PCI-1220U is a cost-effective solution than 4-axis motion control cards. The DLL driver for PCI-1220U together with the utility make it easy for users to test the functionalities of the card and to develop their own application.
