SoftBaugh lowers the cost of programming TI's TMS320C2000(TM) controllers with new flash programmers

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowering the cost of programming the industry's leading control optimized processors, SoftBaugh, Inc., announced the immediate availability of their single site and multi-site flash programmers for Texas Instruments' C2000(TM) digital signal controllers. Starting at only $199 for the single-site programmer (SUP2000(TM)) and $899 for the eight-site programmer (GUP2000(TM)), SoftBaugh offers support for both TMS320F24x(TM) and F28x(TM) controllers. For more information on SoftBaugh programmers for C2000 controllers, see http://www.softbaugh.com/OuterC2000.cfm .

Connecting to a user's PC via USB, both programmers program the C2000 controller through the synchronous communications interface (SCI) universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART). In addition, the GUP2000 supports the parallel I/O boot mode for socketed programming prior to assembly, allowing users to ship programmed and secured parts to their contract manufacturer. Both the SUP2000 and GUP2000 program at up to 9k words per second and mass erase 128k words in under 20 seconds. With up to eight sites, the GUP2000 programmer is designed for production environments and can program target devices in-circuit or via optional socket modules for all BGA and QFP packages. The SUP2000 is a single-site version that can program target devices in-circuit.

"C2000 controllers are ideal for high performance motor control, intelligent sensing and digital power supply applications and SoftBaugh's new programmers are helping our customers get to market faster and more cost efficiently," said Andrew Soukup, C2000 world wide marketing manager, Texas Instruments. The 32-bit F28x controllers are the highest performance digital signal processing (DSP) based cores optimized for control applications that require the peripheral set and ease-of-use of a microcontroller (MCU) with the processing power of TI's leading DSP technology.

Both the SUP2000 and GUP2000 programming tools ship with software to control them from a host PC. In addition, a Software Developer's Kit (SDK), including sample code, is provided to allow users to integrate these tools into their manufacturing and test processes. The mechanical and electrical interface to the GUP2000 socket module sites is also documented to facilitate custom automated part handling fixtures. Once configured from the host PC, the GUP2000 will also support stand-alone operation via the attachment of a command pod, available Q4 2005. This command interface is also available to the user for further integration into production processes.

"We are pleased to offer the industry's lowest-cost programming solution for both F24x and F28x controllers and continue to work closely with TI for the latest C2000 support. By leveraging our experience with TI's MSP430 MCUs, we've developed a flexible programmer architecture that can easily support new TI DSPs and other MCUs from TI for years to come," said Tom Baugh, president, SoftBaugh, Inc.
