TI: DesignDRIVE software for C2000 MCUs helps achieve sub-1 microsecond current loop

Texas Instruments introduced DesignDRIVE Fast Current Loop software that makes C2000 microcontrollers the first devices to push current-loop performance to less than 1 microsecond. Together, TI's C2000 MCU portfolio and DesignDRIVE software delivers system-on-chip functionality which simplifies drive control system development.  New DesignDRIVE Fast Current Loop software out performs traditional microcontroller-based current-loop solutions and can simplify designs by eliminating the FPGA typically used for external current-loop control. Fast Current Loop software is a free update available for C2000 controlSUITE software.

TI’s DesignDRIVE technology is a unified hardware and software platform that makes it easier for engineers to develop and evaluate solutions for a variety of industrial drive and servo topologies. As a key part of DesignDRIVE solutions, the new Fast Current Loop software enables developers to achieve higher control performance while saving valuable board space and simplifying thermal considerations.
