Cost-sensitive Embedded Control Applications Become More Reliable and Intelligent

Tue, 06/16/2009 - 12:26pm
Driving development of more reliable, efficient embedded control applications, Texas Instruments has released the new TMS320F2803x Piccolo microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring the Control Law Accelerator (CLA).

Unique to TI's F2803x Piccolo MCUs, the CLA is a 32-bit floating-point math accelerator that operates independently of the C28x core, allowing for direct access to on-chip peripherals and parallel execution of algorithms.

The MCUs are based on an enhanced tightly coupled control architecture with integrated real-time control peripherals to simplify development of complex systems. Leveraging the performance and integration of the F2803x series, developers can use a single MCU to design cost-sensitive industrial, digital power and consumer applications such as LED lighting and white goods/appliances.

The F2803x MCUs are an extension to TI's Piccolo series and are 100 percent code compatible across the TMS320C2000TM MCU platform. With more than 30 Piccolo configurations available, developers have a broad range of performance, flash and control-oriented peripheral options to meet the varying demands of cost-sensitive, real-time control applications.
