Software for Real-Time C2000 MCUs Reduces Design Complexities

Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced DesignDRIVE Fast Current Loop software that makes C2000 microcontrollers the first devices to push current-loop performance to less than 1 microsecond, according to TI. Together, TI’s C2000 MCU portfolio and DesignDRIVE software delivers system-on-chip (SOC) functionality which simplifies drive control system development.  New DesignDRIVE Fast Current Loop software out performs traditional microcontroller (MCU)-based current-loop solutions and can simplify designs by eliminating the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) typically used for external current-loop control. Fast Current Loop software is a free update available for C2000 controlSUITE software.
