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.
All the content from the 4-part webinar series launched last November 2018 is now available as an open source in our Training Portal for all of the users interested in the motor drives and control topic.
Provides details of the software, hardware, tools, and resource components that make up the SimpleLink SDK software development kit, with an overview of TI-RTOS concepts and labs illustrating how to use the SDK to build and port applications between SimpleLink devices.
The mmWave training series is designed for you to learn the fundamentals of FMCW technology and mmWave sensors, and start development quickly. TI's portfolio of mmWave sensors features the AWR automotive radar sensor family and the IWR industrial mmWave sensor family, which are intended to be used for detecting range, velocity and angle of objects. Learn more about the silicon, tools, software and some of the applications for both mmWave families in the mmWave training series.
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.
Learn about solutions that pair the flexibility of digital power control with C2000 MCUs and in-line current sensing with the high-power efficiency of GaN.
This training outlines the system requirements for EMC immunity, EMI and isolation when designing a variable speed drive. A brief overview is given on the corresponding IEC standards with the test requirements and pass criterion. Subsystem hardware design examples are shown leveraging TI reference designs for an interface to absolute digital encoders and dual port Gigabit Ethernet to pass EMC immunity and EMI, and a 3-phase inverter with reinforced isolated IGBT gate drivers to meet isolation and common mode transient immunity.
This training is meant for engineers designing the control circuits for servo or AC inverter motor controllers for industrial machinery. In particular, the on-demand curriculum is for those who are planning to develop their next drive system based on a C2000™ microcontroller (MCU) and are interested in quickly learning how to use the DesignDRIVE solutions available from TI.
