Serial peripheral interface (SPI) is a communication protocol used for high-speed serial communication between one master controller and one or more slave devices. Its configuration allows for multi-axis architectures, which combined with its easy implementation results in faster system design while still maintaining performance and very low latency. Its application for motion control servo systems leads to getting the best of both centralized and distributed multi-axis architectures. The Ingenia range of SPI servo drives comes in pluggable design for multi-axis system optimizations, high performance all while reducing costs and overall time to market.
Ingenia provides a selection of SPI servo drives. Select the option that best fits with your project requirements and find the right products and solutions from our portfolio.
Through SPI interface you can create and optimize Distributed-Centralized multi axis control architectures and get the best of both worlds:
Motion Control Bus (MCB) is the Ingenia’s proprietary communication protocol running on all Ingenia SPI Drives. The MCB reference manual can be found at each SPI Servo Drive product manual, along with an Application Guide detailing how to develop a proprietary Interface Board where to plug your SPI servo drives.
Ingenia provides an open-source C written library called mcblib that implements the MCB protocol to facilitate customer’s developments. In addition to this, a development board is available upon request.
