C2000™ Position Manager technology offers an integrated solution to interface to digital absolute encoders as well as resolvers and SINCOS transducers eliminating the need for commonly used additional circuits in industrial inverter and servo drives. The PositionManager BoosterPack plug-in module, described by TIDA-1008, is a flexible low voltage platform intended for evaluating various encoder interfaces and designed to work with Position Manager-enabled LaunchPad development kits such as the LAUNCHXL-F28379D. The highly optimized, easy-to-use library and example software delivered with TIDA-1011 support Tamagawa's t-format standard.

  • Flexible low voltage design supports multiple absolute encoder interfaces as well as Resolver and SINCOS sensors
  • TIDA-1011 works with C2000 Position Manager-ready MCUs (via LaunchPad development kits) for Integrated Tamagawa t-format digital protocol solution
  • Easy interface to EnDat2.2 commands via software driver functions and data structures
  • C28x optimized CRC algorithm and data unpacking
  • Up to 2.5 MHz t-format clock supported.  Operation verified for up to 100m cable length
  • TIDM-1011 includes an evaluation board BOOSTXL-POSMGR
