Texas Instruments (TI) has enhanced a third-party ecosystem of digital power hardware and software tools as well as development services. This ecosystem allows digital power design engineers who use TI’s broad portfolio of C2000 microcontrollers (MCUs) to develop their systems quickly and easily. The members of the ecosystem include Altair, MathWorks and Powersim. Each company has demonstrated its digital power offerings on one or more of TI’s C2000 MCU solutions, enabling applications such as inverter control, power factor correction and power conversion. Visit TI’s digital power applications page to learn more about these ecosystem members and their offerings.
Manufacturers need proven hardware and software to help them easily develop digital power systems and accelerate time to market. The ecosystem enables manufacturers developing on TI’s C2000 MCUs to find the best digital power offering to meet their unique needs, get the most out of their TI MCU solutions and create differentiated products. Members of TI’s digital power ecosystem offer services to meet the growing needs of the digital power market, including faster time to market, increased efficiency and more reliable control.
“Our VisSim graphical language for simulation and model-based embedded development is powerful, easy to use and reliable,” said Pete Darnell, Senior VP of Model-Based Embedded Tools, Altair. “VisSim is an essential tool for C2000 MCU developers who are looking to accelerate development of their digital power and motor control applications.”
“Our MATLAB and Simulink product families provide optimised code generation, continuous verification, real-time simulation and automated testing tools,” said Tom Erkkinen, Embedded Applications manager, MathWorks. “Our tools combined with the performance of TI’s C2000 MCUs help our customers use model-based design to bring their innovative digital power systems quickly to market.”
