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.
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).
Mobile Smart TV is a growing category that can extend the AV personal electronics category. This training includes all the information you will want to know about the mobile Smart TV category. Introduction, value proposition, benefits, and design considerations of the mobile smart TV category are included in the training. The last section, covers the benefits of DLP Pico technology for this application.
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.
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.
TI provides key runtime software components and documentation to further ease development. TI’s online training provides an introduction to the Processor SDK and how to use this software to start building applications on TI processors.
The Programmable Real-Time Unit (PRU) is a small processor that is tightly integrated with an IO subsystem, offering low-latency control of IO pins on TI’s SoC devices including the 66AK2Gx, AM335x, AM437x, and AM57x Processors. The PRU is customer-programmable and can be used to implement simple and flexible control functions, peripherals, and state machines that directly access IO pins of the device, as well as can communicate with the application cores.
Learn about how to overcome high frequency challenges using TI's series capacitor buck converter.
This section covers wireless network trends, key technologies, and problem statements for smart grid IoT.
This section covers system-level examples for wireless networks on smart grid IoT. We will provide software- and system-level details for two system examples: 6LoWPAN-Contiki and sub-1GHz sensor to cloud industrial IoT gateway reference design.
This section summarizes the wireless network challenges and solutions for a smarter grid IoT training series.
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.
