June 23, 2010 -- The MathWorks and Texas Instruments, Inc. today announced continued collaboration to provide extended support for design of cost-sensitive, energy-efficient applications. Engineers using TI's TMS320C2000 Piccolo real-time control microcontrollers (MCUs) can now adopt model-based design to support the full development chain – from algorithm development to production code generation.
Adding support for the low-cost, high-performance Piccolo MCU family, the Target Support Package product from The MathWorks now offers rapid turnkey implementation, early verification and shorter time-to-market for digital motor control, digital power, lighting, renewable energy and other applications requiring real-time control.
The 32-bit Piccolo MCU family offers a broad range of performance, flash, analog integration, and control-oriented peripheral options to meet the varying demands of cost-sensitive, real-time control applications. Design engineers can now execute their MATLAB and Simulink algorithm code across all F2802x/F2803x Piccolo devices for rapid prototyping and production deployment of embedded systems. Model-based design with production code generation creates a direct connection between the development environment and implementation platform, helping engineers to identify and fix design problems at the system level and easily generate efficient C2000-specific code.
Availability and Pricing
The Target Support Package is available immediately. List prices start at $3000.
