Hi PETE, VISSIM supports CLA of F28035? If yes, is it operates parallel with main CPU? programming independently.

Hi Robotics Developer, VisSim/ECD (complete model-based embedded development platform with target support for TI F280xx/F283xx) costs $12,000. You can get a 100 block limited version of VisSim/ECD for $4000. Customers tell us owning VisSim/ECD is equivalent to having a TI C2000 embedded coder expert on staff.

t.alex: Speaking for VisSim, the VisSim/ECD tool generates ANSI C code that fully supports the on-chip peripherals of the C2000, including PWM, SPI, CAN, I2C, serial, interrupts, encoders, event capture. Generated code is so efficient that you can do 2 independent sensorless FOC PMSM controllers @ 10kHz sample rate on an F28035 60MHz Piccolo part. Even better is that you can put fit program, data and 1.6kB of debug buffers in the 10k words of RAM on the part. This saves the flashing step during product development, and ensures that your final product will fit on the smallest, least expensive parts. Additionally, VisSim hotLink allows target parameter change and PC based digital scope update while your control runs uninterrupted.

An excellent article, well written and informative, I would like to see more details in terms of the relative costs for the various systems. Oftentimes, cost is king and drives the system choices to less accurate/efficient but lower cost solutions. I will take a look at the referenced TI websites for more information (thanks!).

Yes, the TI DMCLib is completely C source www.ti.com/controlsuite or www.ti.com/c2000dmc The tools from The Mathworks www.mathworks.com/c2000 and VisSim http://www.vissim.com/products/overview.html also produce editable C code.

Visual development tool is a great concept, especially for motor control application which requires a great deal of tuning. I wonder if the tools mentioned above can generate C source code as well?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
