To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of all Concerto MCU devices and support tools. Each Concerto MCU commercial family member has one of three prefixes: x, p, or no prefix (for example, xF28M35H52C1RFPT). Texas Instruments recommends two of three possible prefix designators for its support tools: TMDX and TMDS. These prefixes represent evolutionary stages of product development from engineering prototypes (with prefix x for devices and TMDX for tools) through fully qualified production devices/tools (with no prefix for devices and TMDS, instead of TMDX, for tools).
|xF28M35...||Experimental device that is not necessarily representative of the final device's electrical specifications|
|pF28M35...||Final silicon die that conforms to the device's electrical specifications but has not completed quality and reliability verification|
|F28M35...||Fully qualified production device|
Support tool development evolutionary flow:
|TMDX||Development-support product that has not yet completed Texas Instruments internal qualification testing|
|TMDS||Fully qualified development-support product|
Devices with prefix x or p and TMDX development-support tools are shipped against the following disclaimer:
"Developmental product is intended for internal evaluation purposes."
Production devices and TMDS development-support tools have been characterized fully, and the quality and reliability of the device have been demonstrated fully. TI's standard warranty applies.
Predictions show that prototype devices with prefix of x or p have a greater failure rate than the standard production devices. Texas Instruments recommends that these devices not be used in any production system because their expected end-use failure rate still is undefined. Only qualified production devices are to be used.
TI device nomenclature also includes a suffix with the device family name. This suffix indicates the package type (for example, RFP) and temperature range (for example, T).
For device part numbers and further ordering information of F28M35x devices in the RFP package type, see the TI website (www.ti.com) or contact your TI sales representative.
For additional description of the device nomenclature markings on the die, see the F28M35x Concerto™ MCUs Silicon Errata.
TI offers an extensive line of development tools. Some of the tools and software to evaluate the performance of the device, generate code, and develop solutions are listed below. To view all available tools and software for C2000™ real-time control MCUs, visit the C2000 MCU Tools and Software page.
H52C1 Concerto Experimenter Kit
The C2000 Experimenter Kits from Texas Instruments are ideal products for initial device exploration and testing. The Concerto H52C1 Experimenter Kit has a docking station that features access to all controlCARD signals, breadboard areas and RS-232 and JTAG connectors. Each kit contains a H52C1 controlCARD. The controlCARD is a complete board level module that utilizes and industry-standard DIMM form factor to provide a low-profiles single-board controller solution. Kit is complete with Code Composer StudioTM IDE v4 and USB cable.
H52C1 Concerto controlCARD
The C2000 controlCARDs from Texas Instruments are ideal products for initial software development and short run builds for system prototypes, test stands, and many other projects that require easy access to high-performance controllers. The controlCARDs are complete board-level modules that utilize an industry-standard DIMM form factor to provide a low-profile single-board controller solution. All of the C2000 controlCARDs use the same 100-pin connector footprint to provide the analog and digital I/Os on-board controller and are completely interchangeable. The host system needs to provide only a single 5V power rail to the controlCARD for it to be fully functional.
controlSUITE™ Software Suite: Essential Software and Development Tools for C2000™ Microcontrollers
controlSUITE™ for C2000™ microcontrollers is a cohesive set of software infrastructure and software tools designed to minimize software development time.
Studio™ (CCS) Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for C2000 Microcontrollers
Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) that supports TI's Microcontroller and Embedded Processors portfolio. Code Composer Studio comprises a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, and many other features. The intuitive IDE provides a single user interface taking the user through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces allow users to get started faster than ever before. Code Composer Studio combines the advantages of the Eclipse software framework with advanced embedded debug capabilities from TI resulting in a compelling feature-rich development environment for embedded developers.

This integrated circuit can be damaged by ESD. Texas Instruments recommends that all integrated circuits be handled with appropriate precautions. Failure to observe proper handling and installation procedures can cause damage.
ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure. Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.
