The Piccolo F2806xU MCUs integrate USB 2.0 and CAN peripherals for on-the-go communications in the field along with 12bit, 3 MSPS, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with simultaneous, dual sampling and on-chip voltage reference yield quick and accurate system feedback. The devices use three high-speed analog comparators with 30ns response time promote near instantaneous fault responsiveness.
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.
The 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.
The C2000’s flexible and 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: $39 controlSTICK (TMDX28069USB), $59 controlCARD (TMDXCNCD28069) and $99 Experimenter’s Kit (TMDXDOCK28069). Application-specific motor control and digital power development kits, featuring the DRV8x motor drivers and digital power integrated circuits (ICs), are also available now. TI’s controlSUITE software provides open source software, example projects, hardware schematics, easy-to-use demonstration GUIs, and documentation. It is free and can be accessed immediately. All of these tools and software, combined with online training and online support to make development easy and get products to market more quickly.
The F2806xU Piccolo microcontrollers start at $4.95 in 1k volumes and offer various configurations to meet a variety of performance, memory, peripheral and package size requirements.
