Simple functions such as timer replacement, input/output expanders, system reset controllers and stand-alone EEPROM are common on PCBs. Low-cost, ultra-low-power MSP430™ value line microcontrollers (MCUs) offer cost savings when replacing digital and analog functions in a system. Watch this series to see how MSP430 MCUs can be used to enhance communication, pulse width modulation, systems and housekeeping, and timer functions in your next design.

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.
This curriculum provides an in-depth look at the K2G Processors, Processor SDK-Linux and TI-RTOS, and the Programmable Realtime Unit (PRU).
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.
This module covers the “Innovative 7-Segment LCD Control Using GPIO Pins and SW” section of the “Single-chip Smart Water meter with Dual-band RF link and InfraRed port” training series.
The third part of the session provides details on the need to focus on AC analog input module and its use cases in different types of protection relays, Different types of current sensors and the use cases for these sensors including key advantages and dis-advantages. Explains AC analog input module architecture including block diagram showing the critical products and EERD with different subsystems identified showing different approaches for designing an AC AIM.
These videos describe how to analyze analog-to-digital converter (ADC) performance specifications that are measured using ac input signals, such as SNR, THD, SINAD, and SFDR.
eFuses are highly integrated ICs that offer device and system-level protection at the input or the output. Traditionally, complete power path protection circuitry was accomplished with a handful of discrete components – components that can use up to 70% greater board space, introduce unnecessary design hurdles, and potentially slow your time to market if UL recognition is required. Those problems are eliminated with our fully integrated eFuses that include over current, over voltage, reverse polarity and more essential protection functions.
Noise and EMI can be detrimental to sensitive analog signal chain circuitry. For this reason, many engineers automatically default to linear regulators. But, in doing so, they are essentially trading one problem (noise) for another (heat dissipation). In this section we will discuss what types of signal chain loads can be driven directly by a switching regulator to get low noise and EMI without sacrificing efficiency. We will also discuss when a linear regulator is absolutely needed to reach levels of noise not possible with a switcher.
Mitigating switching regulator EMI and noise is seen by engineers as a black art. Mess with the feng shui of the PCB layout too much, and the system may not pass CISPR standards. Because of this, many power designers simply turn to linear regulators as a guaranteed way to avoid the headache of reducing emissions.
This training series on actuators will provide you basic background of actuators and why an electrical system should be matched to an actuator. This series will cover piezoelectric actuators, linear resonant actuators (LRA) for haptics and eccentric rotating motors (ERM) for haptics.
This series will cover how to use the noise specifications in the ADC data sheet to predict system noise. It will also cover the use of TINA SPICE to aid in the overall analysis of the system noise. Key concepts like noise bandwidth, quantization noise, thermal noise, amplifier noise, and reference noise will be covered.
Board designers are constantly looking for ideas to optimize their printed circuit board (PCB) designs. From reducing board size to lowering costs and the number of components, maximizing efficiency is a requirement for almost any design.
