Texas Instruments (TI) has equipped manufacturers with a third-party ecosystem of digital power hardware and software tools as well as development services that allow digital power design engineers who use TI's portfolio of C2000 microcontrollers (MCUs) to develop their systems quickly and easily. The members of the ecosystem include Altair, MathWorks, and Powersim. Each company has demonstrated its digital power offerings on one or more of TI's C2000 MCU solutions, enabling applications such as inverter control, power factor correction, and power conversion.

According to the company, the ecosystem enables manufacturers developing on TI's C2000 MCUs to find the best digital power offering to meet their unique needs, get the most out of their TI MCU solutions, and create differentiated products. Members of TI's digital power ecosystem offer services to meet the growing needs of the digital power market, including faster time to market, increased efficiency, and more reliable control.

"Our VisSim graphical language for simulation and model-based embedded development is powerful, easy to use, and reliable," said Pete Darnell, SVP of Model-Based Embedded Tools, Altair. "VisSim is an essential tool for C2000 MCU developers who are looking to accelerate development of their digital power and motor control applications."

"Our MATLAB and Simulink product families provide optimised code generation, continuous verification, real-time simulation, and automated testing tools," said Tom Erkkinen, embedded applications manager, MathWorks. "Our tools combined with the performance of TI's C2000 MCUs help our customers use Model-Based Design to bring their innovative digital power systems quickly to market."

"Our PSIM product offers a dedicated solution for digital power supplies and motor drives," said Hua Jin, president, Powersim Inc. "With the intuitive user interface, built-in function blocks specific for TI's C2000 MCUs and numerous examples based on TI development kits, PSIM provides a very easy-to-use and powerful model-based embedded software development environment for rapid control prototyping."
