  • The explanation of transit time flow meters has been greatly over simplified here and misses many of the real issues to really measure accurate flow. Since speed of sound in water can vary from (rounding off) 4600-5000 ft per second based on water temperature. Even though the term for this in the actual equation becomes small, it still has a significant affect on the real flow. No mention is made ...

  • In the very first installment of this blog series , I claimed that C2000™ microcontrollers (MCUs) are equipped with an array of unique features geared toward scavenging cycles at each of the three stages of real-time closed-loop systems. Since then, I have explored a number of these features that are designed to save cycles at both the sensing and processing stages. Now, it’s time to focus on the ...

  • Ultrasonic sensing is an emerging technology in the industrial and residential gas-flow metering space . In fact, ultrasound is a better alternative to mechanical flow metering because it enables the measurement of much lower flow rates while consuming very little power. Because there aren’t any moving parts in an ultrasonic flow meter, these meters are also not subject to problems introduced by m...

  • It’s been said that if you only have a hammer, you’ll see every problem as a nail. When it comes to powering automotive processors, you’ll find hammers, screwdrivers and more in TI’s extensive portfolio of highly integrated power-management ICs (PMICs). My colleague Karl Wallinger describes the benefits of these devices in his blog post, “ How an integrated power management IC can simplify your in...

  • In part one of this blog series, I gave an overview of the market opportunity for EtherCAT slave stack support on C2000 MCUs and an introduction to a three phased solution to jumpstart slave stack development. Beyond this three-faceted development flow, what has TI done to make our solution more compelling than a typical stack porting exercise? First, we applied our knowledge of the C28 CPU archit...

I have to say, I’m impressed by how simple it is to get going with each of the devices in the portfolio. Depending on what...

  • Who uses VCRs anymore? Voltage Coefficient of Resistance (VCR) is a rarely thought-about parameter of resistance. Depending on the resistor used, the attenuating difference amplifier can be off by 3% if the same 20M resistors are used that I use in one application versus the 100k used in Figure 4. Measuring high voltages means encountering VCR. Measuring 100V with 100k resistors means burning 1/10...

  • In part 2 of the integrated intelligence motor driver blog post series, I discussed the open-loop acceleration phase for motor startup. In this third installment, I will discuss techniques for starting a motor from a standstill state. The driver needs to be synchronized with rotor position before it starts open-loop blind commutation to avoid applying the voltage to wrong phase (energizing wrong p...
