MCUs with industrial communication interfaces
31 July 2019, DSP, Micros & Memory

Texas Instruments introduced new communications capabilities on its C2000 microcontrollers (MCUs). C2000 F2838x devices enable designers to use a single chip to implement connectivity, including EtherCAT, Ethernet and CAN FD, in AC servo drives and other industrial systems.

Systems with communication interfaces often require an external application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) or dedicated host control microprocessor, which limits the flexibility of the design architecture, adds complexity and takes up space on the board. The new C2000 F2838x MCUs do not require an external ASIC, therefore reducing overall solution size and bill of materials.

By integrating three industrial communication protocols, the MCUs give designers the ability to tailor one MCU to the unique needs of each system. A key component in achieving this is a new connectivity manager, an Arm Cortex-M4-based subsystem, which offloads processing-intensive communications and optimises connectivity.

In addition to these capabilities, C2000 F2838x MCUs offer enhanced real-time control performance and higher flexibility than previous C2000 series MCUs.
