TMDSCNCD28035ISO: Is it possible to put the board to sleep for a few seconds?

Part Number: TMDSCNCD28035ISO


I currently have this Piccolo TMS320F28035 Isolated controlCARD.


Docking Station:

Micro Inverter Baseboard:

I am using the Solar Micro Inverter sample code located in ".../controlSUITE/development_kits/TMDSSOLARUINVKIT_v100/MicroInv_F2803x". 

I want to put the program to sleep for a couple seconds. Does this board support a sleep function? 


  • I want to put the program to sleep for a couple seconds.

    It is the device you want to put to sleep, not the program. The MCU can be put into three different low-power modes. It is possible to keep the WD active in HALT. When the WD counter overflows, the device can wake up, do what it needs to do and the code can again put the device into HALT. A sleep time of "couple of seconds" may not be possible, however.

    Does this board support a sleep function?

    Please clarify what you mean by sleep function for the board. The MCU supports three different low-power modes. Please refer to the Datasheet & TRM. 

    If you are new to C2000 or CCS, please review the workshops at TI has invested considerable resources to develop these self-paced workshops and most questions can be answered by reviewing the workshop material for your specific device family or its closest equivalent. The workshops are an excellent introduction to the basics of C2000 MCUs and the process of writing and running your first example. Good introductory videos about CCS are available at
