New to mm-wave sensing? This series of five short videos provides a concise yet in-depth introduction to sensing using FMCW radars.
Labs are follow-along training videos that walk you through installation, building, and running examples of mmWave sensor projects.
C2000 MCU DesignDRIVE, a new evaluation platform to explore numerous industrial drive subsystems and motor control topologies. This evaluation platform supports various motor types, current sensing technologies and position sensors.
An introduction to the new DesignDRIVE Position Manager technology for TMS320F28379D and TMS320F28379S Delfino™ real-time controllers. Position Manager provides solutions for interfacing to servo motor rotor absolute position sensors such as resolvers, SIN/COS, EnDat 2.2 and BiSS-C.
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 curriculum provides foundational content and hands on examples 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.
These video series will talk about the different types of motors used in the industry; DC, Brushless DC, Steppers, Permanent Magnet Synchronous, and AC Induction. To gather a better understanding of motors, differences of these motors with advantages and disadvantages of each will be shown. Basic motor drive circuits will be discussed from full H-Bridge drive to half-bridge for 3-phase motors. Other drive concepts such as 6-step commutation along with drive issues such as current recirculation will be discussed. Field Oriented Control will also be discussed and how
