TI infuses C2000™ Concerto™ dual-core microcontrollers with higher performance, increased memory and more I/Os in a smaller package

Meeting designers' evolving needs, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ:  TXN), announces its latest 32-bit C2000™ Concerto™ microcontrollers for motor control, renewable energy and smart grid applications that require power conversion, remote data sharing, diagnostics, monitoring and control from a single device.  The new Concerto F28M36x microcontrollers integrate real-time, precise control provided by its C28x digital signal processor and advanced connectivity enabled through its ARM® Cortex™-M3 core, plus on-chip peripherals.

The dual-core Concerto microcontrollers are supported by C2000's controlSUITE™ software which includes an intuitive software ecosystem, application libraries, demos and examples, as well as TI's Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) v5.
TI-RTOS™, a new, deterministic, scalable real-time operating system (RTOS), is fully integrated with the Code Composer Studio IDE and available at no cost and royalty free.  It provides low-overhead communication mechanisms between the ARM Cortex-M3 and C28x cores, enabling developers to get started right out of the box and easily exchange command-and-control data buffers.  These newest Concerto microcontrollers are code compatible across the entire C2000 microcontroller platform for scalability and code reuse in energy-efficient applications.

Features and benefits of Concerto F28M36x microcontroller systems:           
  •     Real-time control subsystem with TI's C28x 150 Mhz digital signal processor with floating point and the Viterbi Complex Math Unit.
  •     Smaller package size and more connectivity than previous Concerto microcontrollers – 289-pin (ball), 16x16 mm nFBGA package with .8 mm ball pitch to allow more input/output (I/O) connectivity.
  •     Industry-leading control peripherals for control and power conversion in energy-efficient applications.
  •     Robust host communication subsystem based on 125 Mhz Cortex-M3 and connectivity peripherals such as Ethernet, USB On-The-Go, dual CAN and multiple serial communication ports, enable functions such as data sharing, diagnostics and monitoring.
  •     High-performance pulse-width modulation (PWM) peripherals increase the control resolution in switching power supplies and motor control systems
  •     Memory includes up to 1.5 MB of flash and 232 KB RAM for storage.
  •     Simple development environment supports programming each subsystem independently
  •     TI-RTOS for builds on the SYSBIOS real-time kernel and controlSUITE middleware and peripheral libraries and provides TCP/IP, USB host and device, a FAT file system, and drivers all completely integrated and tested in a multithreaded environment to enable engineers to begin development immediately. It uses the same real-time kernel on both cores to provide a uniform programming environment in which developers can quickly switch tasks from one core to another to optimize system performance.
