The C2000 Delfino F28377S LaunchPad evaluation kit from Texas Instruments (TI) is in stock at Mouser Electronics. This new TI LaunchPad is an easy-to-use, rapid-prototyping kit for TI’s C2000 Delfino F2837xS portfolio of microcontrollers and offers 200MHz of 32-bit floating-point performance, newly integrated accelerators, as well as high-integrity analogue and control peripherals.

The LaunchPad kit is compatible with TI BoosterPack plug-in modules — including the Digital Power BoosterPack — and offers a variety of software support to further ease development.     

The kit is based on the C2000 Delfino TMS320F28377S microcontroller, which provides 400MIPS of total system performance between a 200MHz C28x CPU and a 200MHz real-time control co-processor (CLA).

The microcontroller contains 1 MByte of on-board flash and 164 kBytes of RAM, and includes highly differentiated peripherals such as 16-bit/12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), comparators, 12-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs), and more.      

The board includes an integrated isolated XDS100v2 JTAG emulator for easy programming and debugging, and the board’s USB interface provides a UART serial connection from the F2837xS device to the host PC.

To allow for rapid prototyping, the kit also features two 40-pin headers that match the BoosterPack ecosystem. TI’s BoosterPacks enable technologies such as wireless connectivity, graphical displays, and environmental sensing.     

The C2000 Delfino F28377S LaunchPad Evaluation Kit includes the LAUNCHXL-F28377S LaunchPad evaluation board, a micro USB cable and a quick start guide. The C2000 Delfino LaunchPad dramatically reduces the barriers of entry for development of high-performance control systems in digital power, solar, motor control, and industrial drives applications.
