    I havent reviewed your schematic, but you might want to check out microchip's appnotes on motor control, as well as the Open Source Motor Controller design (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/osmc/).

    I would suggest you dont try and do pid in your drive, but use a hardware controller like gecko G100 to 'close the loop'. The benefit of this is you dont have to get bogged down with the math of pid controllers. In effect your drive becomes a pwm + dir torque controller, and the G100 deals with the pid and computer interface.
