An analysis of stick-slip behavior and convergence of trajectories in the feedback-controlled motion systems with discontinuous Coulomb friction is provided. A closed-form parameter-dependent stiction region, around an invariant equilibrium set, is proved to be always reachable and globally attractive. It is shown that only asymptotic convergence can be achieved, with at least one but mostly an infinite number of consecutive stick-slip cycles, independent of the initial conditions. Theoretical developments are supported by a number of numerical results with dedicated convergence examples.
