TI Strengthens its C2000 Piccolo MCU Portfolio for Extended Efficiency in Power-Control Applications

TI’s New Added Highly Integrated System-on-Chip Boosts Performance in EV/HEV, Grid Infrastructure and Industrial Applications


Texas Instruments (TI) announces to strengthen its C2000 Piccolo microcontroller (MCU) portfolio. TI has added the new C2000 F28004x MCU family – optimized for power-control in cost-sensitive applications such as on-board chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), inverters for motor control, and industrial power supplies.

By adding this new family of real-time control devices that integratea floating-point unit, math accelerators and an optional parallel processor, TI claims C2000 Piccolo MCUportfolio continues to set industry standards by boosting the performance of its 100-MHz central processing unit (CPU).

Key Features and Benefits of the New C2000 F28004x MCUs                                                       

  • Streamlined performance and power: With 60 percent lower active power than previous Piccolo devices; the optional on-chip DC/DC converter reduces activepower up to 70 percent.
  • Advanced actuation and design flexibility:Fourth generation of TI’s high-resolution pulse-width modulation (PWM) timer technology implements the most advanced high-frequency switching techniques for increased efficiency and power density.
  • Enhanced digital and analog crossbars: Combining inputs, outputs and internal resources enables flexibility to support control and protection mechanisms.
  • New capabilities: Embedded real-time analysis and diagnostic unitenables enhanced debugging, an ultra-high-speed serial interface improves throughput over isolation boundaries, and flexible boot modes give developers the ability to reduce or eliminate boot mode pins.

Developers can reduce bill-of-material (BOM)costs while building smaller, more reliable systemsby taking advantage of the industry-leading integrated analog of the C2000 Piccolo F28004x MCUs,which offer system protection and new capabilities to enable development of high-performance power-control systems.

The integrated analog features include three independent 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs)with post-processing hardware, advanced synchronization capabilitiesand programmable gain amplifiers, along with a sophisticated comparator and digital-to-analog converter subsystem and a sigma-delta filter interface.

The new C2000 Piccolo F28004x MCU builds on the generational improvements introduced in theDelfino F2837x and Piccolo F2807x series. These new real-time control solutions offer code compatibility with existing Piccolo MCUs, allowing customers to take advantage of the new family’s unique combination of premium performance in an affordable offering.

Pricing, Package& Availability

Developers can evaluate the new C2000 F28004x MCUs with the F280049 experimenter kit (TMDXDOCK280049M) available for US$209.00 through the TI store and authorized distributors.

Production quantities of theC2000 F28004x MCUs are available in a 64-pin LQFP package, starting at US$4.85 in 1,000-unit quantities.
