This video demonstrates how to use Texas Instruments (TI) C2000 microcontrollers (MCUs) with the PLECS Coder and the TI C2000 Target Support Package. Parallel control subsystem models are included, allowing to program several specific MCUs from TI. Each subsystem can be directly converter into target specific code for the corresponding TI LaunchPad hardware, 28069, 280049C, 28377S, and 28379D LaunchPad, including the 28069, 280049C, 28377S, and 28379D devices. The logic can blink an LED on the LaunchPad board and generate two sinusoidal waveforms that are measured with a PLECS Scope by connecting a PWM output to a digital input via a jumper wire. This example walks the user through the process of flashing the MCU (either directly from PLECS or via Code Composer Studio), establishing the hardware connections for the waveform generation-measurement task, and using the External Mode to update Scopes in the PLECS application with real-time waveforms and optionally tune parameter values in the control logic in real-time.
