Keywords:microcontroller  MCU  teaching ROM 

Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduces the enhanced floating-point F28335 Delfino microcontroller (MCU) Peripheral Explorer kit and free C2000 MCU teaching ROM that offers an easy-to-use, cost-efficient foundation for jumpstarting real-time control application designs that fully leverage the performance and peripherals of TMS320C2000 MCUs.

The C2000 teaching ROM is a comprehensive guide to C2000 MCUs, also providing an introduction to real-time control design considerations. The teaching ROM includes labs based on TI's F28335 Peripheral Explorer kit that offers superior hands-on learning. The F28335 Peripheral Explorer kit offers increased integration over previous explorer kits to reduce development cost and enhance learning exercises. Together, the teaching ROM and Peripheral Explorer kit enables 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 C2000 MCU teaching ROM offers features and benefits that include a structured undergraduate-level-like course to provide intuitive, self-paced study; nineteen modules that cover MCU/DSP basics, MCU architecture, peripherals and tools as well as utilities and real-time control applications; laboratory exercises paired with the F28335 Peripheral Explorer kit; complete procedures and solutions for laboratory exercises; and exercises that are provided in two versions to run under Code Composer Studio IDE v3.3 and v4.

The features and benefits offered by the F28335 Peripheral Explorer board (TMDSPREXF28335) include an easy demo and evaluation of key C2000 peripherals (ePWM, ADC, McBSP, eCAP, CAN, I2C, SPI, GPIO); full board development enabled with included F28335 controlCARD; on-board USB JTAG emulation that eliminates the need for external emulator thus reducing development cost; temperature sensor and additional LEDs that assist with learning and labs; and open source hardware, documentation and open source example software.
