P08331: Microcontroller Starter Kit/public/
Table of Contents
- Past senior design teams, when given a project that requires the functionality of a DSP or microcontroller, panic. They are unfamiliar with the technologies and the projects focus turns to controller selection and implementation rather then the project design.
- An attempt to alleviate some of the confusion and panic, project P08331 is tasked to design an affordable DSP/Microcontroller starter kit. The starter kit will have a standardized stackable interface for I/O, automated programming capabilities at the push of a button or via WiFi web based interface, as well as a WiFi web based real time debugging interface.
The Design Concept
- Create a scalable microcontroller platform with the ability to expand its featureset with future I/O and probe boards.
- The Microcontroller board will consist of a TMS320F2809 DSP and a LANTronix wireless webserver, used as a debug module. The processor will be programmed with RS-232 or file upload to the aforementioned webserver. The board accepts 5V and a restricted amount of current, providing 5V/3A to subordinate boards via power header. The web interface of the Lantronix device server should provide a visual representation of all processor I/O pin states, voltage output of all regulators, total current draw, as well as a GUI for on board diagnostics.
- Provide communication protocols: I2C, SPI, CAN, & SCI (UART)
- Provide buffered 1.8V, 3.3V & 5V from a 5V wall wart via standard power connector, or accept 5V from power header and regulate down to 1.8V & 3.3V.
