InstaSPIN-FOC is a sensorless field-oriented motor control algorithm which runs on select C2000 devices. This presentation is intended for customers who are currently using or considering InstaSPIN-FOC.
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.
Explore several subtle nuances to significantly improve power supply performance. Examples include: the hidden advantages of synchronous regulators, a module that features the best attributes of a switcher AND an LDO, and tips to reduce system noise by manipulating output capacitor combinations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Programmable Real-Time Unit (PRU) is a small processor that is tightly integrated with an IO subsystem, offering low-latency control of IO pins on TI’s SoC devices including the AM335x, AM437x, and AM57x Sitara Processors. The PRU is customer-programmable and can be used to implement simple and flexible control functions, peripherals, and state machines that directly access IO pins of the device, as well as can communicate with the application cores. This curriculum provides an in-depth look at the PRU, including hardware, firmware, application design, and drivers.
This series provides an overview of the World of Power by Market, by Standard, by Product Type and Topology. It also provides an overview of the design tips and tools related to power design decisions.
Learn how to simplify the product selection and power supply design processes for Wide VIN DC-DC step-down ICs in Industry 4.0 applications, and how these processes differ for power modules versus buck converters.
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.
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.
