The Power PMAC is a new motion controller that uses the latest in hardware and software technologies to bring high performance and flexibility to machine control. It taps the power of a PC by combining a full-fledged, general-purpose computing engine with real-time Linux (a true hard, real-time multitasking operating system). That way, users can integrate all network and operator interfaces, including video, into the controller, eliminating the need for a separate PC. Other features include 1.0 GHz operating frequencies, 64-bit architecture and support for 256 motors running simultaneously.
