Over the last few years, millions of products incorporating pico projection have shipped, and developers are innovating new applications for this rapidly growing display category. Ideal applications for pico projection include near eye display, interactive digital signage, head mounted display, ultra short throw (UST) TV, standalone portable projectors and embedded projection in smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Enabling developers to save valuable board space, Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) announced it has expanded the availability of tiny package sizes to several new families of ultra-low power MSP430 microcontrollers (MCUs). Developers can now design smaller products....
Texas introduced three new DC/DC LED drivers that simplify white color tuning for high-color rendering and ultra-low dimming in professional-grade indoor and outdoor LED lighting applications. The TPS92660 two-string LED driver and TPS92640/1 synchronous buck controllers address
Mechanisms like lockstep CPUs, error correction code (ECC) logic for embedded memories and automated built-in self test (BIST) engines integrated into embedded controllers may greatly simplify and reduce the development time needed to design and certify safety critical electronic systems for the aerospace industry.
Answering the question, “How low can you go with power?” Texas Instruments Incorporated introduced the industry’s lowest power DC/DC step-down converter, which increases the amount of harvested energy an end application can use as much as 70 percent over alternative devices.
Differential signaling is used for noise immunity in Ethernet, RS-485, CAN and USB. In ideal cases, all common-mode noise is rejected. In real-world applications, there are several design techniques and component parameters to consider in order to keep the data flowing with high confidence.
Texas Instruments Incorporated today introduced a successive-approximation-register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a downloadable TINA-TI SPICE model, enabling system designers to simulate and characterize the full analog signal chain in software for the first time.
The TI boost charger for nano (ultra low) power energy harvesting manages the microwatts to milliwatts of power generated from a number of sources and stores the extracted energy in various storage elements, including Li-ion batteries and super capacitors.
Texas Instruments introduced what is presented as the industry’s smallest, 16-bit delta-sigma analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with integrated programmable gain amplifier (PGA), reference, temperature sensor and 4-input multiplexer.
Texas Instruments Incorporated announced the Stellaris 2.4 GHz CC2560 Bluetooth Wireless Kit (DK-EM2-2560B), aimed at jumpstarting Bluetooth-enabled designs.
In this episode we talk to Brian Glinsman from Texas Instruments about metro, pico and enterprise small cell base stations.
Texas Instruments premiered its first module platform housing the WiLink 6.0 (WL1271) single-chip, wireless combo solution with TI’s open source, Linux-based OpenLink drivers.
Texas Instruments introduced a new Sub-1 GHz RF Value Line family, offering developers low-cost connectivity solutions for sub-1 GHz RF applications such as remote controls, toys, home and building automation, and security systems.
Texas Instruments became the first partner to achieve the Netflix Silicon Reference Implementation (SRI) certification for the Netflix HD application on Android.
Texas Instruments introduced the second device in the family of PurePath Wireless audio products for consumer, portable and high-end audio applications.
TI introduced a symmetric-polarity transceiver that protects the system from communication losses and potential damage should the signal wires be inadvertently reversed during installation or maintenance.
This video provides an overview of Texas Instruments' TMS570 Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK).
There has been a lot of coverage of SuperSpeed USB as its adoption is starting to ramp up, even with the lack of native support in the PC chipsets.
Texas Instruments today introduced a SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) transceiver capable of data transfers up to 10 times the speed of current USB 2.0 technology.
The eZ430-Chronos is a highly integrated, wearable wireless development system based for the CC430 in a sports watch. It may be used as a reference platform for watch systems, a personal display for personal area networks, or as a wireless sensor node for remote data collection.

The Lizard CPU module, from Dave, is based on the newly announced AM3505 and AM3517 ARM microprocessor from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). With compact form factor (70mm x 50mm), the Lizard features the NEON multimedia accelerator
In 10 years, which display technology will dominate the TV marketplace?
The controller area network (CAN) bus has gained popularity in applications such as process control, automation, medical, and manufacturing due to high immunity to EMI and its ability to find and repair data errors. Because a CAN bus often runs over long distance interconnecting multiple systems, isolation between the bus and the systems connected to it becomes crucial.
Designers of portable electronic devices have a variety of choices on types of chemistries, charger topologies and charge management solutions. Selecting the most suitable solution should be a simple task, but in most cases, it is a more complicated process. The designer needs to reach an optimal balance between performance, cost, form factor and other key requirements.
