The device has SIMILAR FUNCTIONALITY but is not functionally equivalent to the compared device.
TI does not recommend using this part in a new design. This product continues to be in production to support existing customers.
The TMS320C242 device is a member of the TMS320 DSP family of digital signal processor (DSP) controllers based on the TMS320C2xx generation of 16-bit fixed-point DSPs. This new generation is optimized for digital motor/motion control applications. The DSP controllers combine the enhanced TMS320 DSP family architectural design of the C2xx core CPU for low-cost, high-performance processing capabilities and several advanced peripherals optimized for motor/motion control applications. These peripherals include the event manager module, which provides general-purpose timers and PWM registers to generate PWM outputs, and a single,10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), which can perform conversion within 1 us.
