MCUs bring 16-bit ADC precision performance to industrial control applications
Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) introduced its new C2000 Delfino 32-bit F2837xS microcontrollers (MCUs). These single-core MCUs are believed to be the first in the industry to offer four 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), enabling precision feedback in power control applications. They are pin- and software-compatible with the recently introduced dual-core C2000 Delfino F2837xD MCUs and help expedite development when scaling from higher performance industrial control applications to mid-tier control designs. Features Delfino F2837xS MCUs include:
- A C28x and real-time control accelerator (CLA) to provide a combined 400MIPS of floating-point performance, enabling quick and efficient management of multiple control tasks simultaneously.
- Intelligent system partitioning via offloading demanding control loop analysis from the main CPU (C28x core) to the CLA, creating additional bandwidth and allowing the main processor to focus on other tasks.
- Increased system throughput, such as monitoring voltages and currents of three phases of a motor while simultaneously software decoding high-frequency resolver feedback.
