C2000™ microcontroller (MCU) Position Manager technology offers an integrated solution to interface to the most popular digital- and analog-position sensors, which eliminates the necessity for external field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) or application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). The Position Manager BoosterPack™ is a flexible, cost-effective platform intended for evaluating various encoder interfaces and is designed to work with multiple C2000 MCU LaunchPad™ development kits. The software of this reference design specifically targets implementation of the T-Format, which is a digital, bidirectional interface for position encoders. The highly optimized and easy-to-use software reference implementation and examples included in this reference design enable T-Format, position-encoder operation using the Position Manager BoosterPack.
