    Hi!

    Sadly, they are all already spoken for. Just hold tight...only a few more weeks. In the mean time check out some of the cool technology TI is helping to create. I went to a media day a few weeks back and got to see all of the demos (and meet Kipp Bradford of MAKE) in this article: http://blog.makezine.com/2012/06/27/innovate-the-future-with-texas-instruments/ FYI The vein view is super cool in person!
  2. Welcome, were glad to have you! E2e isn't that bad (I answer a good amount of questions there), but it will be nice to have somewhere we can discuss "cool" projects instead of just work related stuff.

    Hi!

    More news: Our Chinese CM isn't going to be able to hit the date they promised. They say the issue is component lead times, but they should have already purchased all the components because we kicked off a production run of an old version of the board previously (which subsequently got cancelled). Its looking like the Launch will be some time in July...
  4. I had this same problem the other day! I'm of the opinion that all the code TI releases should build without warning, and this breaks that rule. I've brought this up with our software manager and we are debating recompiling with a newer tools version. For now, like Grim said, just ignore the error.

    Hi!

    Once again...close, but no cigar! Actually this board was originally slated to have an entry line device on it, but our marketing team wants to keep the entry line parts kind of secret. We don't want customers who are already using a Piccolo part to migrate their application to these lower cost parts. That being said the entry line parts are public: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/sprs810/sprs810.pdf After we had built about 500 of these boards with the entry line parts marketing came back and wanted our High-Resolution PWM to be on the board (which the entry line parts lack), so we had to ch

    Hi!

    Na, the FCC testing is just a part of this new TI compliance initiative. We have to jump through a bazillion hoops before we can release a kit now. There is no law requiring these boards be tested before they are sold...there are laws about radiating unintentionally. That being said, with the currents and frequencies on this board, the compliance testing is more of a formality. Close but no cigar on the part number...that's actually a 48TQFP... We just kicked off production on Memorial Day and it should take about 3 weeks to get the kits built and in stock... Sorry for the wait

    Hi!

    We passed FCC unintentional radiator testing today...

    Hi!

    You're very observant Tom...

    Hi!

    I'm doing my best to avoid any issues (like the 430 launchpad had), and we are on schedule to have 10k units in stock when we release to market. Price will still be <$20.
  10. Wiki for CLA C compiler: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/C2000_CLA_C_Compiler Training videos for CLA C compiler (done by a good friend of mine): http://focus.ti.com/docs/training/catalog/events/event.jhtml?sku=OLT212011 There was alot of work that went into this product, but it substantially lowers the barries to entry for CLA use. I highly recommend you guys check this out as the CLA can effectively double the MIPS of a processor which has it. Trey
  11. Glad to have you here Dan. We've got some exciting hardware in the works that should be out in another month or so...

    Hi!

    Quick update on the secret board I have in the works: The board should have been release last week, but due to some changes in the marketing requirements we had to do another board spin before we went into production. I expect the board to be released sometime in May. Price point will be the same.
  13. I think these connectors are near end of life. We do sell them, but I think they are hard to find through normal distributors. You can get a 5 pack from TI here: http://www.ti.com/tool/tmdsdim100con5pk and the Molex part number is: 87630-1001
  14. As long as you are using an XDS100 emulator CCS is free for C2000 devices. Check out our wiki: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Main_Page http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/XDS100
  15. The freebie license should work with any XDS100. There is nothing special or different between the emulators on the controlCards/EVM and the stand alone emulators. Trey
  16. Grim, If you are just calling atan and including math.h you are using the default atan implementation present in the run time support library. This code is very well optimized for our devices. Depending on if you have floating point or not there are a couple options for faster math. Check out the math directory in controlsuite/libs. There are implementations of atan for the CLA, IQMath, and FPU. If you use the FPUFastRTS library make sure it is first in the link order otherwise the standard atan function might get linked in instead of the fast one. Regards, Trey

    Hi!

    You might see something around $20...and I might have designed it
  18. Technically the CAN standard states the CAN bus should have 1x 120 ohm resistor at each end of the CAN bus (for two total). Your vehicle is already properly terminated otherwise the CAN bus wouldn't work. Adding an extra termination resistor won't hurt anything and as Spiff says will cut down on reflections. Past a certain point though, too many termination resistors will drop the bus's impedance too low and will cause the trasceivers to work harder than needed which could eventually burn some of them out over time.
  19. I have personally used the valueCAN from Intrepid Control Systems and the NI-CAN (USB) adapter from National Intruments. Both work well, and don't drop packets except under the highest loads. Whatever you end up getting I would recommend you look for something with an RP1210 compatable driver. RP1210 is a standard API for CAN adapter software and makes it very easy to switch CAN PC applications to using different hardware adapters.
  20. We don't have any truely cheap motor control kits at the moment, but this is something we are investigating. I highly suggest you wait a month or two, as we have a big announcement coming up about a kit that I think would fit your needs. A word of warning, initial quantites of this kit will be limited because of some supply issues with some of the parts. If you want the kit I highly recommend you order it as soon as it comes out.
  21. They never do...its all about the Benjamin's in corporate America...
  22. I've had a few emails back and forth with our marketing guys and they aren't very receptive to the idea of doing a seperately packaged docking station. We are fighting we our CM right now and they simply don't want to deal with the headache of doing another project with them. I'm not saying this won't happen, but this could potentially take some time. I'll keep this in the back of my mind and continue to push for it with management. I appreciate the feedback and ask that this forum continue to give me ways I can help to improve user experience of C2000 products.
  23. KaaaChing!!!! They are just hidden to encourage corporate users to pony up the cash... Here are the freebie downloads: http://processors.wi...hp/Download_CCS License Information: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Licensing_-_CCS "In CCSv4 there was a 32KB limited version available for C28x, this is no longer available as you can instead use the free bundle license wiht XDS100 that has no limit." Enjoy!
  24. To the best of my knowlege, you cannot buy the docking station seperately. The thinking behind that is that intially users don't have a docking station or controlcard, so they buy both. Then in the future as they migrate to different devices they just buy additional controlcards. Now that most of our controlCards have an on board emulator, I think the above paradiagm is shifting to where people buy controlcards and evaluate those without the docking station. Then after selecting the device for a project, they need a platform to develop on. This leads to the issue which you've run into

    Hi!

    Welcome to C2KC! Looking forward to seeing some of the cool projects people are doing with our devices. Also, keep your eyes peeled everyone. We are working on some great new stuff for the educational and hobbiests markets that will be released soon...
