Software eases real-time control design

9 June 2010 Design Automation

Responding to the demand for more intuitive, easy-to-use software throughout every design stage, Texas Instruments has developed controlSUITE software for its TMS320C2000 microcontrollers (MCUs) that enable real-time control applications. Unlike traditional MCU offerings, controlSUITE software delivers the content and content management necessary to simplify evaluation, application adaptation, debug, test and re-use.

Going beyond the simple demonstrations common to free software portfolios, controlSUITE software includes libraries and examples that are full, open source projects, serving as true development systems for applications such as motor control. Additionally, a new installer eliminates frustrations related to versioning and dependencies and gives developers access to the complete software offering in a centralised location.

The software content takes user through each design stage, from evaluation through application development to proliferation. Fundamental building blocks inside an intuitive system framework simplify device start-up, configuration, tasking and peripheral configuration, all within the Code Composer Studio integrated development environment that works across multiple TI embedded processor platforms.

Modular application level libraries and unique tools were built into real-world systems and are supported with open source hardware examples to allow developers to easily port content to varying applications. Developers can reuse content across product lines and projects, fully leveraging the scalable C2000 MCU platform to meet varying price, performance and peripheral requirements. Device drivers, APIs and utilities, as well as math, signal processing and application libraries, allow developers to focus on differentiation.
