F2806x Floating Point Piccolo

Texas Instruments Piccolo MCUs offer floating-point precision and increased math capabilities

Image of Texas Instruments' F2806x Floating-Point Piccolo™Texas Instruments' F2806x series expands Piccolo™ low-cost, high integration 32-bit microcontrollers to include floating-point ease of use along with increased communication capabilities. The math computing capabilities are greatly increased not only by a speed bump to 80MHz, but also by the addition of the new VCU complex math unit. Flash and RAM size have been increased, and Piccolo sees new peripherals such as USB (with host), DMA, and HiRes capture. These advances open the door to a wide array of new application possibilities. For example, the engineers can easily add any variant of power line communication to their applications without the need for an additional MCU.

There is now a low-cost controlSTICK for instant plug-and-play with your computer. The F28069 controlSTICK includes on-board emulation, so it's a complete development kit, along with TI's Code Composer Studio™ v4 IDE and graphical programming. There is also an Experimenter's Kit with the F28069 controlCARD. The controlCARD will also be sold individually and can be plugged into all existing evaluation and application kits. The F28069 Piccolo Experimenter Kit is an ideal product for OEMs to use for initial device exploration and testing.
