This module covers the architecture of the CLA, the resources at its disposal and the division of code into task blocks that are triggered by peripherals or through software. Each of these task blocks are atomic, in the sense that no other task may interrupt a running task. This makes operation of the CLA unconventional in comparison with standard CPUs.
These videos introduce the C2000 TMS320F28004x family of devices.

Motor control functionality is a key attribute of the C2000 MCU family. Get started with your motor control application on Delfino MCUs using these trainings which focus on field oriented control capabilities.
Motor control functionality is a key attribute of the C2000 family. Get started with your motor control application using these trainings which provide a foundation for understanding motor control and focus on field oriented control capabilities.
In addition to the Delfino and Piccolo MCU families, there are other MCU offerings in the C2000 family that provide real-time control functionality.
The C2000™ Piccolo™ MCUs are a family of 32-bit microcontrollers optimized for processor-intensive, real-time control applications. Designed for cost-sensitive applications, TI Piccolo MCUs scale to meet a variety of performance needs, whether controlling single or multiple control loops. Piccolo MCUs use common software and provide a high level of analog integration to deliver:
Power efficiency is a key requirement for applications today. These introductory trainings explain how to implement digital control loops by taking an analog compensator and converting it to the digital domain using C2000 MCUs.
Power efficiency is a key requirement for applications today. These introductory trainings explore how Delfino MCUs are used to optimize power efficiency in applications such as charging piles and onboard charging applications for electric vehicles.
Power design is not easy. These trainings explore power supply development and how to control and tune your digital power application.
While motor topologies have remained relatively unchanged over the past century, control techniques by comparison have experienced explosive growth. This has been driven in large part by technology advancements in the semiconductor industry. This seminar focuses specifically on advancements in the control of motors with an emphasis on field-oriented principles with brushless AC motors.
The CLA is supported by a subset of the ANSI ‘C’ Compiler. You will learn the features, and more importantly, the limitations, of this compiler in this video. The video also covers the changes in the linker command file needed to support operations on the CLA
In this video we get into the actual workshop. I will take an existing project for the C28x, a simple example that samples an EPWM, runs it through a low pass filter, and then an FFT to get the frequency spectrum, and migrate it over to the CLA. You can download the project files here and I encourage to follow along as I go through the different steps and considerations during the migration process.
In the previous modules you would have learned the workings of the CLA, the implementation of the ‘C’ language, and its unique method of debugging. This video deals with some of the common issues users face when writing code for the CLA. It is a compilation, and investigation, of some of the most commonly asked questions on the forums and should help you get to working code quickly.
