TIDA-01162: TIDA-01162 demonstrates the key differences between an integrated vs. discrete low-voltage motor drive solution. The discrete solution is implemented using two large external MOSFETs, while the integrated solution utilizes TI’s DRV8850 brushed DC motor driver. Both designs are implemented on a single PCB for a quick-comparison of the two solutions.
TIDA-00663: Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems use the time taken by the light to fly back and forth to an object in an effort to measure the distance to this target. The TIDA-00663 reference design shows how to design the time measurement back-end for LIDAR based on Time to Digital Converter (TDC) as well as associated front-end. The LIDAR pulsed time of flight reference design can be used in all those applications where measuring distance to the target by establishing a physical contact is not possible. Typical examples include measuring presence of objects on a conveyor belt in logistic centers, ensuring safety distances around moving robot arms among many others.
TIDA-00641: This reference design achieves a dual channel high resolution micro-stepping driver module using PWM current regulation method. Selectable micro-stepping level and current level is provided with the on-board switches. The PWM regulation scheme gives smooth phase current and ultra-low acoustic operation noise. Protections such as over current, over temperature, and short outputs are all provided along with the DRV8848 device.
