Allowing for higher precision and motion control, the two companies are developing a kit designed for next-generation robotics applications.
STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a semiconductor company announced that it is partnering with motor development firm maxon, in developing advanced robotics applications. Together, the two companies are building a development kit for finer precision and control in robotics and automation processes.
As quoted in the press release:
“Our motors are trusted worldwide to deliver high quality, precision, and accuracy,” said Felix Herger, Head of Business Development Industrial Automation, maxon motor. “Teaming with ST has created a platform that makes these attributes more easily accessible to a wider variety of product designers.”
“Designing high-end motion controls with accurate positioning capabilities is complex and time-consuming, demanding specialist skills. Working with maxon, we have now put those skills in a box for our customers,” said Branimir Ivetic, Motion Control Product Marketing Manager, STMicroelectronics.
“The EVALKIT-ROBOT-1 kit accelerates development of next-generation robotics and automation that delivers advanced capabilities and dexterity with excellent reliability and ease of use.”
