This six part training walks through the usage of the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad. The training explains the working of the demo code that is pre-programmed in the LaunchPad. You will also learn how to setup CCS projects and initialize and use key peripherals in the MSP430FR59xx family of MCUs.
This 7 Part Series with the MSP430 5xx Experimenters Board will cover the following topics:
- Active and low power mode operation
- Mixed signal application example
- Hardware timers to conserve power
- Implementing a fully optimized ADC12 routine
- MSP430 tools, resources, and conclusions
As more and more IoT products are being connected to the internet, the security of these devices is becoming increasingly important. A security-focused approach should be taken when building IoT products to protect users’ privacy and block any malicious activity.
TI’s TMS320C55x Fixed-Point Digital Signal Processors (DSP) enable high performance and low power through increased parallelism and total focus on power savings. Industry-leading active power enables computationally-intensive applications, such as voice triggering and encoding, to run on battery for extended period of time. Development tools include the award-winning eXpressDSP, Code Composer Studio (CCS), Integrated Development Environment (IDE), DSP/BIOS, optimized DSP and math libraries, and the industry’s largest third-party network.
Similar to existing KeyStone-based SoC devices, the 66AK2Gx enables both the DSP and ARM cores to master all memory and peripherals in the system. This architecture facilitates maximum software flexibility where either DSP- or ARM-centric system designs can be achieved.
This curriculum provides an in-depth look at the K2G Processors, Processor SDK-Linux and TI-RTOS, and the Programmable Realtime Unit (PRU).
Learn the features and benefits of TI's new DC/DC power topology, the series capacitor buck converter, and get started using it in your space-constrained design.
This training series covers LEA or Low Energy Accelerator a vector math co-processor, the performance benchmark, and how to get started on the new MSP430FR599x. LEA is capable of performing various signal processing tasks efficiently without any CPU intervention. For example, LEA can perform a 256-point complex FFT in just ~5k cycles whereas a Cortex-M4F would take approximately 17k cycles (3.6x improvement).
Modern battery powered motor drive applications such as power tools, drones, vacuum cleaners, eBikes, etc. show a clear trend towards permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) and brushless DC motors (BLDC). The biggest challenge in designing the power stage for these applications is to meet form factor, efficiency, protection, peak current carrying capability and thermal performance. This training will explain how to do a system design to meet the design challenges by proper selection of power FET and gate driver.
TI's PGA460-Q1 is the industry’s most flexible ultrasonic sensor. It supports wide distance detection range at low power, enabling automotive park assist and industrial applications.
This training series details configuring the TI DLP® DLPC900 digital controller chipsets for 3D machine vision applications, including PCB automated optical inspection (AOI). This digital controller is use by the DLP6500 1080p digital micromirror controller (DMD) and the DLP9000 WQXGA DMD. This training series includes:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
Non-technical losses (“theft”) account for billions of dollars of revenue loss for utility providers around the world as individuals are able to hack meters to slow or stop the accumulation of energy usage statistics. This loss has driven increased requirements for enhancing the protection designed into new smart meters. This training session will discuss different methods of attacking smart meters and how TI’s analog portfolio can be used to detect or even prevent these attacks. In one scenario magnets are used to saturate any transformers present in the system.
This training presents TI’s ready-to-use EtherCAT masters solutions for Sitara processors. EtherCAT master on Sitara runs on different operating systems, including TI-RTOS and RT Linux. It also runs on the EMAC interfaces (CPSW and PRU ICSS_EMAC) of any Sitara device, including AM57x, AM437x, and AM335x.
