PLC Motherboard with AC Mains Line Coupling
TIDA-00192: The PLC motherboard is designed to complement the TI Designs SOMPLC-F28PLC83 and SOMPLC-F28M35. The motherboard implements the key AC line coupling circuitry necessary for the System on Module (SoM) to connect to the mains power. The PLC motherboard also includes expansion headers for RF modules which simplifies the development of a combined PLC+RF systems. TIDA-00192 was implemented using hardware from TMDSPLCDOCK-V4
Ethernet Bootloader for Microcontroller
TIDM-ETHERNET-BOOTLOADER: This design describes how to use Ethernet module to transfer the firmware image and program it into flash on Hercules MCU. The Ethernet bootloader is based on TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) which is a file transfer protocol notable for its simplicity. And it is a small piece of code that can be programmed at the beginning of the flash to act as an application loader as well as an update mechanism for applications running on a Hercules microcontroller.
Wideband Digital to RF Transmit Solution
TIDA-00072: The TSW308x is an example design of a wideband digital to RF transmit solution capable of generating 600 MHz of contiguous RF spectrum. The system provides a reference on how to use the DAC34x8x, TRF3705 IQ modulator and LMK0480x to achieve this. This reference EVM coupled with a pattern generator such as the TSW1400EVM can be used to arbitrarily generate narrow band and wideband signals at RF. Examples of configurations to generate standards compliant WCDMA test signals are provided.
Power and Battery Management Reference Design for CC2530 ZigBee Wireless MCU
TIDA-00600: The main focus of the TIDA-00600 is to provide a small size and cost optimized power management solution for ZigBee systems that requires both a rechargable battery and DC connector power supply. TIDA-00600 design provides test data, design guide and Gerber files for the power management segment. This reference design features the LP5907 an ultra small LDO with high PSRR and low noise and the BQ24230 a stand alone battery charger.
Dual-Wideband RF-to-Digital Receiver Design
TIDA-00073: The TSW1265EVM is an example design of a wideband RF to digital dual receiver solution capable of digitizing up to 125MHz of spectrum. The system provides a reference on how to use the ADS4249, LMH6521, LMK0480x, and a dual mixer to achieve this. This reference EVEM coupled with a capture card such as the TSW1400 can be used to capture and analyze narrow band and wideband signals. Instructions are provided on how to change the LO and IF frequencies for different application needs. The TIDA-00073 was implemented with hardware from the TSW1265EVM.
Biometric Steering Wheel Reference Design
TIDA-00292: This reference design is for a concept demonstration of how a driver's pulse rate, respiration rate, and ECG based heart rate can be obtained from a vehicle steering wheel. AFE4400 and AFE4300 from TI's biometric family of analog front-ends (AFE), enables acquisition of all three parameters via simple hand contacts on the steering wheel. This reference design also includes a full BLE connectivity design for easy interface to BLE enabled smartphones, tablets, etc
System on Module for Industrial Power Line Communication (CENELEC Frequency Band)
TIDM-SOMPLC-INDUSTRIAL-CENELEC: This reference design is a single-board System on Module(SOM) for industrial PLC in the Cenelec frequency band. This TI implementation of Power Line Communications (PLC) is a new option for adding communications to industrial equipment such as solar arrays.PLC Lite™ offers higher data throughput than earlier forms of PLC and greater robustness for transmission across noisy electric lines by using OFDM PHY technology. The industrial PLC achieves up to 21 kbps data rates across AC or DC power lines compared to traditional SFSK PLC solutions (2-5 kbps) all while decreasing the overall BOM cost of a typical PLC modem. Engineers can take the SOM design and integrate it into their overall system board or keep the design as an add-on board to their application. The only additional hardware required is the AC mains line coupling circuitry. The included hardware schematics and Gerber files simplify the task for engineers to add PLC to their end system. OEMs will benefit from having the ability to rapidly evaluate and prototype Power Line Communications technology in their application.
5V, 3-Phase, Sensorless Motor System With Variable Speed Control
TIDA-00112: This reference design provides a simple way to spin and control a 5V, 3-phase, BLDC fan motor with minimum development time and overhead. It utilizes the DRV10866, a sensorless BLDC motor driver, for the power stage and a TLC555 timer to provide a variable duty cycle PWM signal for speed control. The DRV10866 uses a 150 degree sensorless BEMF control scheme that takes away the need for external sensors on the motor.
