Floating point Piccolo microcontrollers

Bridging the gap between low cost Piccolo and high performance Delfino floating point microcontrollers (mcus), Texas Instruments has launched low cost TMS320F2806x Piccolo floating point mcus.

The devices enable an enhanced math engine specifically designed to simplify programming and optimise performance in real time control applications that may require integrated communications.

Developers of energy efficient motor control and renewable energy applications can now use a single F2806x mcu to execute control loops as well as power line communications protocols and modulation schemes.
According to TI, the mcus also deliver a broader range of connectivity and memory options and are backed by TI's free controlSUITE software.
