We are pleased to announce our new RoadTest for Texas Instruments' Piccolo Multi-DC/DC Color LED Kit. The Piccolo provides all the hardware and software you need to start experimenting and developing a digitally controlled multi DC to DC LED lighting system. This kit itself is based on the Piccolo microcontroller and the control CARD development platform. The C-2000-based MCU is able to directly control eight separate DC to DC power stages, as well as up to eight LED strings of various LED types and string lengths.
The kit’s graphical user interface allows engineers to quickly begin the evaluation process by providing simplified control to adjust power stage current levels for experimentation with brightness and color mixing. Additionally, the kit includes closed loop, open source software examples for the control of the DC/DC power stages and LED lighting stages. The kit’s hardware is also completely open source, with the gerbers, schematics and BOMs all available for free.
Apply now for a chance to win one of these kits!
