Yes, that seems to be the case, Al, but I suppose the technology can be extended or adapted to other uses as well.

Interesting product.  It seems like the target applications are distributed systems primarily used in manufacturing, and combining larger complex systems.

Yes, vimalkumarp, this is true...motion control seems to be playing an increased role in a number of robotic and automation systems. Medical devices also are becoming more interconncted as well, and will require more sophisticated motion control systems that can handle this change.

Motion control plays a major role in medical devices too. Like the latest robotic surgery systems and bionic applications , motion control is a domain that is closey monitored by the medical device manufacturers for the latest developments
