In this training series, we demonstrate how to use the PRU-ICSS subsystem on a Sitara processor to interface between multiple SAR ADCs using SPI.
- In the first module, The architecture of a multi-channel data acquisition system and how a multiplexer can be used to facilitate the implementation. Possible causes of fault condition in a typical data acquisition system are discussed, and how the fault condition can severely impact the normal operation of the system is explained.
- In the second module, protection schemes that can be implemented to protect the system in fault condition using discrete components are discussed.
Although motor drives have been around for many years, trends in Industry 4.0 such as TSN, industrial IoT, and functional safety are revolutionizing the role a drive takes in the Smart Factory. Where typically its main function was to drive a motor, a servo drive now must include other features to conform with the needs of Industry 4.0. This paired with the rapid growth of the robotics market has created a need for Smart Servo drives with multi-axis capabilities.
IPv6-based communications are becoming the standard choice in industrial markets such as smart meters and grid automation. The universal data concentrator design provides a complete IPv6-based network solution integrated with Ethernet backbone communication, 6LoWPAN mesh networking and more. The 6LoWPAN mesh networking, which adopts an identical layering architecture to the WI-SUN FAN, addresses key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, security and long-distance connectivity.
As processing requirements for electricity meters gradually increase, it becomes increasingly difficult to find one device that meets both the processing requirements for adding advanced metrology features to smart meters while also accurately sensing metrology parameters, such as RMS voltage, RMS current and active power. To deal with this design challenge, one option is to use a separate metrology microcontroller and a standalone ADC.

Over the last few years, the industry has been moving from mechanical to fully electronic meters. We have seen more and more functionalities such as metrology with ultrasonic technology, leak detection with audio patterns, communication with low power and long range radio being added to smart meters. These new functionalities allow utilities to deliver new services such as condition-based maintenance and remote monitoring of meters, which lead to efficient management of the network and better customer experience.
IPv6-based communications networks are becoming the standard choice in industrial markets such as smart meters and grid automation. These 6LoWPAN-based mesh networks address key concerns such as vendor interoperability, long-distance connectivity, security and reliability. This training will cover system- and software-level deep-dives on new RF 6LoWPAN mesh solutions, which implement open-source based 6LoWPAN mesh stacks on top of the frequency hopping based TI-15.4 stack.
This training introduce helps you to learn how to design a good AC/DC ACF USB-C PD adapter. It gives some introduction on both ACF topology and UCC28780 controller, and also some system design considerations and suggestions which are target to solve your actual problems. At last, it shows a 65W USB-C PD adapter design with high power density(31W/in3) and high efficiency(94% peak).
Shunt sensors are rapidly replacing current transformers as the preferred current sensing solution for electricity meters(e-meters) around the world.
