Texas Instruments’s new TMS320F28379D and TMS320F28379S microcontrollers are an expansion to the C2000 Delfino microcontroller portfolio. When combined with DesignDRIVE Position Manager technology, they enable simple interfacing to position sensors. Based on the real-time control architecture of C2000 microcontrollers, the DesignDRIVE platform is ideal for the development of industrial inverter and servo drives used in robotics, elevators, and other industrial manufacturing applications.
With the C2000 DesignDRIVE development kit, you investigate a variety of motor drive topologies. DesignDRIVE is supported by the C2000 controlSUITE package and includes specific examples of vector control of motors, incorporating current, speed, and position loops, to help developers jumpstart their evaluation and development. In addition, users can download Texas Instruments’s Code Composer Studio integrated development environment (IDE), providing code generation and debugging capabilities. You can download reference interface and power supply designs for motor drives.
The TMS320F28379D and TMS320F28379S microcontrollers are now sampling starting at $17.20. The DesignDRIVE Kit (TMDXIDDK379D) costs $999.
