Two new development kits from Texas Instruments Incorporated ease development of digital power designs. The TI C2000 microcontroller (MCU) Interleaved Power Factor Correction (PFC) Kit offers best-in-class efficiency, power factor (PF), and total harmonic distortion (THD) performance, supporting advanced power metering functions and alternating current (AC) lines. The Digital Power Workshop Kit provides a robust, low-voltage, safe training environment, targeted for power supply engineers seeking to transition from analog power design to digital modes.
Each of the digital power kits contains complementary analog components, such as amplifiers, isolators, secondary power devices, linear regulators and MOSFET drivers. These components are test to work with the C2000 MCU devices in a digital power system, yielding a complete system kit for design needs.
TI will demonstrate the these kits in its booth #109 at the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Expo (APEC) in Long Beach, Calif., Mar. 18-20 .
Both of the new digital power kits can be obtained through the TI estore and TI-authorized distributors. The Interleaved PFC Kit is available for $299, and the Digital Power Workshop Kit is available for $399.
