Mouser Stocking TI DC-DC LED Lighting Developer Kit
Mouser Electronics, Inc. announced that it is stocking the Texas Instruments TMDSDCDCLEDKIT TMS320C2000™ DC-DC LED Lighting Developer’s Kit.
The Texas Instruments TMDSDCDCLEDKIT TMS320C2000™ DC-DC LED Lighting Developer’s Kit includes all of the hardware and software to start experimenting with and developing a digitally controlled LED dc-dc system. The TI TMDSDCDCLEDKIT is based on the Piccolo microcontroller and the controlCARD development platform. One Piccolo MCU is able to directly control the dc-dc power stage as well as eight LED strings.
This TI LED lighting developer’s kit includes a development board that takes 12-48Vdc of input and uses a SEPIC dc-dc topology to buck or boost the input voltage to a desired level. This voltage is then fed to four LED driving stages, each capable of driving two LED strings at up to 30W each. The TI TMDSDCDCLEDKIT includes closed loop, open source software for both the dc-dc stage and the LED lighting stage. The kit hardware is also completely open source, with the gerbers, schematics, and BOMs all available for free.
