Polarity Correcting Isolated CAN Reference Design
TIDA-00267: A ready to use design that efficiently solves the problem of improper installation by adding antiparallel communication channels and appropriate control signal to enable polarity correction for the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus.
Automotive 48V 1kW Motor Drive Reference Design
TIDA-00281: The TIDA-00281 TI Design is a 3-Phase Brushless DC Motor Drive designed to operate in 48-V automotive applications. The board is designed to drive motors in the 1-kW range and can handle currents up to 30-A. The design includes analog circuits working in conjunction with a C2000 LaunchPad to spin a 3-Phase BLDC motor without the need for position feedback from Hall Effect sensors or quadrature encoder.
High Efficiency Isolated CAN & Profibus Interface Reference Design
TIDA-00012: The High Efficiency Isolated CAN & Profibus Interface Solution TI Design is intended for use in industrial systems that require isolated power for CAN and/or Profibus transceivers. This TI Design highlights the ability to completely shut off both the power converter and data transceivers with just one GPIO signal from a microcontroller (when dropping into low power modes, for example). This isolated interface solution delivers accurately regulated rails for both primary and secondary power to TI’s Profibus and CAN transceivers without costly opto-coupler feedback circuits – making this the simplest, most efficient and flexible isolated interface solution for industrial automation on the market today. Other solutions using transformer drivers are not efficient and do not have the ability to be easily turned off and require additional components to regulated the secondary rail. Lastly, this TI Design has the additional feature of allowing the MCU to wait until power is good before transmitting data or to stop transmitting data if a power fault has occured on the interface. The Tiva C Series Launch Pad form factor of this TI Design allows easy connection to the LaunchPad board for use of the Tiva C microcontroller in handling the communications protocol to the interface. The combination of the two boards provides a complete, low cost CAN and Profibus communication solution.
CAN to Wi-Fi Gateway Reference Design
TIDA-00380: The TIDA-00380 CAN to Wi-Fi Gateway is a reference design that shows how to add Wi-Fi connectivity to a CAN network. The design provides a simple way for users to gain access to the CAN bus traffic via a web page. This connection can be used for diagnostics or to add the capability to control the CAN bus. This TI Design provides a complete solution with design files and test results.
