With the introduction of the C2000 TMS320F2838x device family, the EtherCAT communication peripheral is available on-chip. This training will cover:
- What is EtherCAT
- What is the EtherCAT Technology Group
- Details on the EtherCAT network structure, frame structure, and protocol communication
The Digital Control Library (DCL) is a repository of software functions for the C2000 MCU which allows users to implement reliable, high performance control algorithms simply and efficiently. The library also contains supporting utilities such as data loggers and a reference generator.
This series will take you through:
-Introduction to the Digital Control Library
-Available classic controllers
-Data logger utilities within the DCL
-Implementation of nonlinear PID control
-Utilizing the reference generation module
TI Precision Labs is the electronics industry’s most comprehensive online classroom for analog engineers. The on-demand courses and tutorials pair theory and applied exercises to deepen the technical expertise of experienced engineers and accelerate the development of those early in their career. This modular, on-demand curriculum includes hands-on training videos, covering temperature sensor design considerations with online course work, quiz and labs.
Expanding upon TI's LaunchPad ecosystem, the LaunchPad SensorTag kit (LPSTK-CC1352R) offers integrated environmental and motion sensors, multi-band wireless connectivity and easy-to-use software to help you prototype your next connected application. This fully-enclosed and battery-operated kit is well-suited to quickly evaluate a complete sensor network and stress test the various protocol stacks available in the SimpleLink™ Platform.
These videos provide understanding of the fundamental functions used for rapid prototyping on TI solutions with minimal or no programming, including the following:
- Implementing necessary prototyping functions such clocks/GPIO, Read A/D, I2C/SMBus, etc.
- Seamless interface of various analog EVMs for customer “proof of concept”
- Standalone UI – Button, (GP Input - GPIO), LCD Display (“Hello”), Music, Serial Interface (Putty, Echo)
The 66AK2Gx DSP + ARM processors are designed for automotive and consumer audio, industrial motor control, smart-grid protection and other high-reliability, real-time, compute-intensive applications. This training provides an overview of the device architecture and the processor cores. It also includes training related to voice and audio processing, as well as additional how-to video topics relevant to the EVMK2G evaluation module.
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.
