Can you give a suggestion for a C2000 based microcontroller and Components needed for an application where the moste important interface is ethernet?

  • Tom,

    Please take a look at the F28M3x Family of microcontrollers. These MCUs are C28x devices with an extra ARM CPU that has various connectivity peripherals such as Ethernet.

    Here are the links to the superset product pages:
    www.ti.com/.../f28m36p63c2
    www.ti.com/.../f28m35m52c

    Hardware-wise, you can take a look at the Concerto controlCards (TMDSCNCD28M36 and TMDSCNCDH52C1). These have on-board Ethernet ports with all necessary components to connect to a network. You can use the ControlCard as a reference design for the Ethernet. These schematics can be found in c2000Ware at:
    C:\ti\c2000\C2000Ware_1_00_03_00\boards\controlCARDs\TMDSCNCD28M36
    and
    C:\ti\c2000\C2000Ware_1_00_03_00\boards\controlCARDs\TMDSCNCDH52C1


    Thanks
    Mark

    The Ethernet part does not need high bandwidth, its intended for maintenance only and need a very slow Connection. Is possible to avoid the processors with double kernels and only connect directly to a "normal" c2000" microcontroller?
  • In reply to Tom Setterblad:

    Tom, 

    At the moment this is the only C2000 device with an integrated Ethernet Controller. This device is simpler that perhaps using a C2000 MCU like the F2806x and communicating over SPI with a TM4C129x running your Ethernet stack as the full application can run on a single chip.

    Using the Concerto will allow you to run a c2000 application on the C28x core while the M3 is independently running an Ethernet stack. The C2000 can just periodically dump data across to the M3 core without worrying about managing the communication. 

    Thanks,
    Mark
