Accelerate your design and test workflow

In the race to achieve faster time-to-market, companies that employ modern product development processes succeed faster. TestOps, DevOps for design and test, is a new way to work that transforms electronic design and test development processes. Read the white paper to find out four ways in which a TestOps approach can deliver faster time-to-market and improved efficiency to your product development.

 

C2000 key technology guide from Texas Instruments

This application report is intended to provide a deeper look into the components that differentiate the C2000 Microcontroller Unit (MCU) as it pertains to Real-Time Control Systems. The focus is on features that Texas Instruments (TI) believes have measurable impact to overall system performance as well as increased bandwidth to the MCU. This document also expands on the specific aspects of the system that are improved with the covered topics. Finally, appropriate references and links to discrete Part Numbers (PNs), reference designs, and demonstration kits for each topic are provided.

 
 

Single-chip 76GHz to 81GHz automotive radar sensor integrating MCU

The AWR1443 device is an integrated single-chip FMCW radar sensor capable of operation in the 76- to 81-GHz band. The device is built with TI’s low-power 45-nm RFCMOS process with an integrated ARM R4F processor and a hardware accelerator for radar data processing, and this solution enables unprecedented levels of integration in an extremely small form factor.
