TI expands 16 and 32-bit MCU tools portfolio
News Release from:
10 February 2009
Broadening its portfolio of MCU development tools to help designers create energy-efficient and ultra-low power applications quickly and easily, Texas Instruments has announced three new tools for TMS320C2000 32-bit real-time microcontrollers (MCU) and one new tool for the 16-bit MSP430F5xx ultra-low power MCU series.
Expanding TI’s controlCARD offering, the 32-bit C2000-based Resonant DC/DC Developer’s Kit, Renewable Energy Developer’s Kit and Peripheral Explorer Development Kit speed development and enhance functionality for energy-efficient, real-time digital power applications such as solar inverters, uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), telecom rectifiers and LED lighting.
The MSP430F5438 MCU Experimenter’s Kit helps designers to quickly develop with and learn about the new F5xx MCUs, which provide the industry’s lowest active power consumption, more memory and leading integration for applications such as energy harvesting, wireless sensing and automatic metering infrastructure (AMI).
