Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas and Texas Instruments will host a webinar about TI’s C2000 portfolio of fixed point, floating point and multi-core processors. The webcast will focus on advanced motor control techniques, digital light emitting diode (LED) control and renewable power in solar power systems. The web-based training seminar will take place March 15, 2012, at 9:30 am PDT (11:30 am CDT, 12:30 pm EDT). The title of the 60-minute webinar is: Optimizing Energy Efficiency in Digital Power Designs
The IQmath Library for microcontrollers, from Texas Instruments (TI), now supports both the 32-bit C2000 and Stellaris MCU platforms. The TI IQmath Library is an optimized collection of high-precision mathematical functions. The library enables programmers to seamlessly port floating-point algorithms into fixed-point code. Developers can use the software to achieve execution speeds considerably faster than equivalent code written in standard ANSI C language. The IQmath Library speeds development and addresses the limitations of fixed-point math by eliminating time-consuming scaling and saturation burdens. IQmath software is free and available for download through StellarisWare software or C2000 controlSUITE software.
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced their C2000 MCU Teaching ROM and enhanced floating-point F28335 Delfino microcontroller (MCU) Peripheral Explorer Kit. The free C2000 Teaching ROM is a comprehensive guide to C2000 MCUs. It also provides an introduction to real-time control design considerations. The Teaching ROM and Peripheral Explorer Kit will help engineers to leverage the performance of C2000 MCUs to develop more energy-efficient real-time control applications, such as motor control, digital power, renewable energy, and lighting. The F28335 Peripheral Explorer Kit (TMDSPREXF28335) is priced at $179 US and is available now. The C2000 Teaching ROM can downloaded now.
