TIDM-1008: TIDM 1008

Part Number: TIDM-1008
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CONTROLSUITE, , BOOSTXL-POSMGR, LAUNCHXL-F28379D, LAUNCHXL-F280049C


We are setting up a lab for indexing accuracy testing for rotary tables ,We use Heidenhain RCN 2580 encoder for getting indexing values.We are looking for Interfacing card which can read endat 2.2 protocol and customized software to get the indexing values from the encoder,as we went along your products ,TI develops EnDat 2.2 interfacing cards and also provides controlsuite software ,We need to get more clarity on the above topic,We came across TIDM 1008 which is capable of reading heidenhain EnDat 2.2 ,So how can we use the above product to our application,or if we can get a better alternative solutions for  the above setup ,we would like to know.

thank you

  • TIDM-1008 uses

    BOOSTXL-POSMGR hardware to interface to different position sensors.

    For absolute encoders the decoding is done on a C2000 MCU on a separate control board, either

    LAUNCHXL-F28379D (high-end MCU) or

    LAUNCHXL-F280049C (mid-end MCU)

    Each of these MCUs has a peripheral called CLB.  A library is included in controlSUITE which sets-up the CLB to interact with a serial port to implement the absolute encoder standard.  The application code on the MCU can then be customized as your application requires.
