Concerto dual-subsystem MCUs that enable connectivity without compromise

Concerto brings together connectivity and control by combining a ARM Cortex-M3™ core with C2000’s C28x core on to one device. With Concerto, applications such as solar inverters and industrial control can keep the benefits of separating the communication and control portions while maintaining a single-chip solution.

In addition, Concerto enables safety certifications in your system via enhanced hardware and safety features.
