Microcontrollers (MCU)

Piccolo entry performance MCUs – Tools & software

LaunchPad™ development kits

LaunchPad development kits are the lowest cost way to evaluate a C2000 MCU. They include the C2000 MCU, isolated JTAG emulation, a standard pin-out to headers, as well as various additional connectors, LEDs, and buttons. 

controlCARDS

controlCARDs are robust, modular plug-in cards with a standardized pin-out which include the C2000 MCU, common support circuitry,  and often times an isolated JTAG connector. controlCARDs typically give access to a wider range of the microcontroller’s pins, when compared with the LaunchPad development kits.

Application evaluation

Some application kits are aimed at experimentation and concept education, while others provide more real-world power levels similar to the end application.  All application kits contain software examples, extensive user’s guides, and a hardware development package to enable rapid customization for your own product.

Software application packages

Historically controlSUITE has been a repository for device software and application libraries as well as hardware design files and software for application evaluation modules (EVMs). As more libraries and examples were created, special application specific packages were developed (powerSUITE, DesignDRIVE, MotorWare). In the future these application specific packages will be released as Software Development Kits (SDKs) using C2000Ware as a common device level software infrastructure.

C2000Ware

C2000Ware is a cohesive set of development software and documentation created to minimize development time. It includes device-specific drivers, libraries, and peripheral examples. C2000Ware is the recommended content delivery tool vs. controlSUITE but is required for the Piccolo F28004x series.

MotorControl SDK

MotorControl SDK for C2000™ microcontrollers (MCU) is a cohesive set of software infrastructure, tools, and documentation targeted for various three-phase motor control applications. Includes latest DesignDRIVE and InstaSPIN-FOC solutions.

C2000 DigitalPower SDK

DigitalPower SDK for C2000 MCUs is a cohesive set of software infrastructure, tools, and documentation designed to minimize the development time of C2000 MCU-based digital power systems  targeted for various AC-DC, DC-DC and DC-AC power supply applications.

MotorWare

MotorWare is the archived development package for the first generation of InstaSPIN three-phase motor control solutions. 

Programmers & debuggers

JTAG debug probes allow you to program the memory and communicate with the MCU during development.  Flash programming is available for development, in-system, or in production.

On-demand training

Self-paced device, tool, and applications training.
