Learn how to design digital power supplies from ground up quickly and easily with this in-depth laboratory based design workshop.
During the workshop you will learn how to design stable analog and digital control loops in both voltage mode and current mode. You will then design, code, implement and test several digital power supplies in our well-equipped laboratory.
In this session designers can learn how to add gauging, protection, balancing and charging capabilities to any existing drone design to improve flight time.
This excellent, hands-on, laboratory based analog power supply design workshop provides an in-depth look at the design of modern, stable and robust switch mode power supplies. The workshop is aimed at design engineers who need to design and/or troubleshoot modern high performance power supplies.
The workshop begins from first principles and looks at the fundamentals of switching power supply design covering Bode plots and control theory. All theory is supported with numerous hands-on labs and all attendees should leave the workshop feeling conformable with stable compensator design for both voltage mode control and current mode control. There is also detailed study of robust "isolated" power supply design using industry standard optocouplers and programmable references such as TL-431.
This presentation covers the architecture details for the two most common types of precision analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that are widely used in a variety of consumer, automotive and industrial applications.
In this webinar we will discuss how intelligence and energy efficiency can be achieved through environmental sensors (Temperature, Humidity, and Light) as well as new technologies such as 3D vision.
This video demonstrates how to enable the PCIe EndPoint (EP) mode on the Sitara AM57x devices using Processor Software Development Kit (SDK) Linux.
Texas Instrument’s Platform Development Kit (PDK), which is part of the Processor SDK RTOS release, contains a couple of CAN (Controller Area Network) examples that exercise the DCAN peripheral on the Sitara AM335x Evaluation Module (EVM). This video demonstrates the hardware setup procedure, software compilation, and execution of the example in a AM335x General Purpose EVM (GPEVM) board-to-board scenario.

POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface) is an IEEE industry API standard for OS compatibility. The SimpleLink™ software development kits (SDKs) has both TI-RTOS and FreeRTOS support, however it also offers POSIX support on top of either of these RTOS's. This allows applications to be independent of the underlying RTOS.
This workshop provides a simple introduction to using POSIX with the SimpleLink SDK. You will use TI Resource Explorer, the SimpleLink SDK, and CCS Cloud to modify a project and run it on a SimpleLink LaunchPad™ Development Kit. The goal for this project is to familiarize you with some POSIX APIs and concepts typically used in multithreaded applications.
This training is delivered as part of SimpleLink™ Academy in TI Resource Explorer, a collection of curated training modules developed by TI subject matter experts to help developers get up and running as quickly as possible.
The Fly-Buck architecture provides a simple and inexpensive way to generate a secondary, isolated output. Watch to learn more about using readily available coupled inductors from Coilcraft to keep BOM costs low and solution size small.
This training describes the basic functions, as well as technical challenges, of terrestrial radio reception in a vehicle.
TI’s “Jacinto 6” family of infotainment processors provides “out of box” support for the primary digital radio standards in U.S. (HD Radio™) and in Europe (“Digital Audio Broadcasting”, or DAB).
Jacinto uses a “Software Defined Receiver” (SDR) approach to implement a world-wide radio solution, even capable of feature upgrades without hardware changes.
Jacinto SDR provides a large set of radio-processing features, including seamless blending between digital radio and analog radio.
It also offers the flexibility to use tuner front ends from most major tuner suppliers.
Two typical configurations are described: two tuners for main audio & background scanning, or adding a third tuner to extend radio quality/range, using “Maximal Ratio Combining” (MRC).
TI’s powerful C66x DSP on Jacinto 6 can also be used for audio post-processing of the decoded audio.
Learn how to design input EMI filters and how to debug an automotive DC/DC converter design to enhance EMI performance.
Learn how DC/DC converter features like spread spectrum and slew rate control can help you reduce EMI in your automotive power supply design.
What features to look for when you are selecting a DC/DC converter for automotive, including discussion of wide input voltage range, low quiescent current, 2MHz switching frequency, and, of course, EMI mitigation.
EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?
LMH6401 Evaluation Module (EVM) Overview
This video provides an introduction to the Processor SDK RTOS FAQ, the Wiki article where you can find answers to frequently asked questions when developing real time software using the Processor Software Development Kit (SDK) for Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS).
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology that enables companies to collect data from their applications in the cloud and provide analytics and services to the users. In this increasingly complex and connected world, new threats regularly emerge that attempt to steal or compromise information from IoT-enabled applications.
The MSP430 and MSP432 devices provide a "Bootloader" feature - also referred to as the Bootstrap Loader (or BSL) - which provides a method for writing or updating the firmware in MSP430 devices. While MSP430 devices shipped from the factory contain bootloader code in ROM (or non-volatile memory), many users wish to add features to enhance the firmware writing capabilities - such as updating the firmware via over-the-air downloads.
This MSP430FRBoot training video discusses the theory behind using a bootloader that resides in the main FRAM memory of large memory model devices and provides an example of its operation using over-the-air communication.
