TI Launches C2000 Piccolo F2806xU Microcontrollers
Jan 22, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Helping customers develop end products requiring on-site connectivity, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced its newest 32-bit, real-time C2000 Piccolo F2806xU microcontrollers (MCU) with integrated USB connectivity.
According to a release, in many applications, such as consumer and industrial motor control systems, industrial power systems, telecom and data systems, wind and solar energy generation and general power electronic applications, being able to access diagnostics and make on-the-go changes in the field is critical. With the Piccolo F2806xU MCU, TI customers can incorporate USB connectivity into their applications.
Features and benefits of Piccolo F2806xU MCUs:
-Integrated USB 2.0 and CAN peripherals for on-the-go communications in the field.
-12-bit, 3 MSPS, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with simultaneous, dual sampling and on-chip voltage reference yield accurate system feedback.
-Three high-speed analog comparators with 30ns response time promote near instantaneous fault responsiveness.
-C-programmable, 32-bit floating-point CLA co-processor included with F2806x Piccolo MCUs bolsters system performance by up to twofold and enables closed loop control of multiple independent targets. The CLA has direct control of on-chip peripherals and features its own bus and memory structure to support parallel execution of algorithms.
-In addition to the C28x core and CLA, the Viterbi Complex Math Unit (VCU) provides 75 tailored math instructions to accelerate processing of communications algorithms.
-Code compatibility across the C2000 MCU platform allows developers to scale solutions from 40 MHz to 300 MHz.
Tools, software, training and support C2000's modular design concepts allow developers to experiment with various C2000 microcontrollers to fit price, performance and peripheral feature set requirements. Development tools for the F2806xU microcontrollers are available and include: controlSTICK, controlCARD and Experimenter's Kit. Application-specific motor control and digital power development kits, featuring the DRV8x motor drivers and digital power integrated circuits (ICs), are also available now. controlSUITE software provides open source software, example projects, hardware schematics, easy-to-use demonstration GUIs, and documentation.
