Texas Instruments' TMS320C2000™ DC/DC LED lighting developer's kit using the Piccolo F28035 microcontroller

Texas Instruments TMDSDCDCLEDKIT LED Developer's Kit Texas Instruments' LED DC/DC Developer's Kit includes all of the hardware and software to start experimenting and developing a digitally controlled LED DC/DC system. The kit is based on the Piccolo microcontroller and the controlCARD development platform. One Piccolo MCU is able to directly control the DC/DC power stage as well as eight LED strings. The development board takes 12 to 48 VDC of input and uses a SEPIC DC/DC topology to buck or boost the input voltage to a desired level. This voltage is then fed to four LED driving stages, each capable of driving two LED strings at up to 30 W each. The kit includes closed loop, open source software for both the DC/DC stage and the LED lighting stage. The kit hardware is also completely open source, with the gerbers, schematics, and BOMs all available for free.   TMDSDCDCLEDKIT Quick Start Guide
