Dear Vipulan,

  I think that speed controllers are a subset of motor controllers.  Motor controllers can also include devices that just start motors or the closed-loop circuits that monitor the state of the motor for controller feedback.  Practically speaking though, I think that they are essentially the same.  Most products use them interchangeably.
