The goal of this training series is to familiarize the student with the breadth and capabilities of WEBENCH® tools, provide knowledge of the new features in Signal Chain tools, show hands-on examples of the tools being used, and give insight into how to solve problems using the tools. The course has six videos that provide an overview of the current WEBENCH tools and specifically cover the Amplifier Designer, Capacitive Sensing Designer, Filter Designer, Clock Architect, and Coil Designer. The course shows several examples of how the tools may be used to solve customer problems.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
Linux is well-adopted within embedded systems. But debugging Linux system issues can be overwhelming. This training series teaches the techniques of debugging kernel issues that may be encountered in embedded Linux systems. This training series explains the Linux kernel logging system and logging API, illustrates how to locate a particular device driver, and demonstrates how to read kernel oops logs.
Ultrasonic sensing techniques have been popular in smart water meters because the technology avoids any moving parts which are prone to degrade over the lifetime of the product. The MSP430FR6047 microcontroller (MCU) family takes ultrasonic sensing solutions to next level of performance delivering <25ps of accuracy, detection of low flow rates <1 liter/hour and high precision of <5ps.
TI’s AM6x Sitara processor family, along with the Processor SDK, brings unparalleled scalability, reliability, integration, and ease-of-use to the Sitara product line. The new, highly-integrated Sitara AM6x processor family provides industrial-grade reliability, with quad and dual Arm® Cortex®-A53 core variants built to meet the rapidly evolving needs of Industry 4.0 in factory automation and grid infrastructure.
This training series covers critical power supply design parameters such as EMI mitigation, heat dissipation, and loop compensation. Each training module features guidance using the LM4360x/LM4600x Synchronous SIMPLE SWITCHER® step-down voltage regulator as an example device.
As more and more IoT products are being connected to the internet, the security of these devices is becoming increasingly important. A security-focused approach should be taken when building IoT products to protect users’ privacy and block any malicious activity.
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a radio technology enabling bi-directional short range wireless communication between devices to make life easier and more convenient for worldwide consumers by simplifying transactions, digital content exchange, and electronic device connection with a touch.
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 embedded processors.
This training series looks at High Availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) and Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), which are fundamental to many of the tightly-synchronized, high-reliability systems being built today. HSR and PRP work together or separate to keep systems working even when things break so that power stays on and things keep getting built. Both of them work in the low levels of the Ethernet stack to provide the applications that they serve these fundamental capabilities.
TI’s AM57x family, along with the Processor SDK, brings unrivaled integration, scalability, peripherals and ease of use associated with the powerful Sitara processor platform. Sitara AM57x processors' unique heterogeneous architecture including ARM® Cortex®-A15 cores, C66x DSPs, programmable real-time units (PRU), ARM Cortex-M4 cores, and video and graphic accelerators make the AM57x processors unmatched in their class.
TI’s TMS320C55x Fixed-Point Digital Signal Processors (DSP) enable high performance and low power through increased parallelism and total focus on power savings. Industry-leading active power enables computationally-intensive applications, such as voice triggering and encoding, to run on battery for extended period of time. Development tools include the award-winning eXpressDSP, Code Composer Studio (CCS), Integrated Development Environment (IDE), DSP/BIOS, optimized DSP and math libraries, and the industry’s largest third-party network.
To help explore infinite design possibilities with TI Sitara™ ARM® Processors, Texas Instruments has created the Sitara ARM Processors Boot Camp. This modular training series for TI’s Sitara ARM Processors is based on the latest development kits from TI and provides in-depth technical discussion and hands-on exercises for all aspects of the solution; from architecture to peripherals to software and development environments.
In-field firmware updates are becoming an increasingly popular feature supported on products that are deployed to the field; however, this feature is also very commonly exploited by attackers, and if vulnerable, can compromise the security of the system. In this series we will discuss the various security concerns for in-field firmware updates, and a solution for increasing the security of in-field firmware updates in ultra-low power MSP microcontrollers - called the Crypto-Bootloader.
This series outlines a number of Embedded Security Fundamentals as well as a portfolio overview for MSP430 and MSP432 microcontrollers. These are just some of the topics covered in this series:
- Understand embedded security fundamentals
- Security terminologies and definitions
- Embedded microcontroller user requirements
- Microcontroller devices security offerings and development model
This training series demonstrates the usage of TINA-TI, the free SPICE simulator from Texas Instruments. The course has 12 videos, beginning with an introduction and showing the basic usage of the GUI and the simulator. The course shows several examples of the basic features and some of the more complex features that TINA-TI provides. Additionally, the course shows several practical applications of the tool and how it can be used to solve engineering problems.
