High-Performance Digital Control * High performance controllers, many applications - Complete control system capabilities from soon-to-be introduced devices on TI's TMS320C2000(TM) digital signal controller platform provide unmatched levels of performance and integration. See a demo showing how high performance and optimized peripherals enable a single C2000(TM) controller to control multiple three-phase motors simultaneously. Additional end user applications on display reveal TI's wide range of digital signal controller solutions, including a multi-function enthusiast's toy train; an industry-leading audio subwoofer; a MP3 player with a high capacity, miniature hard drive; a radar enabled industrial flow meter; and an industrial machinery fatigue relieving touch button. * SawStop Table Saw - Come for a video demonstration and see an actual SawStop Table Top Saw display, which is equipped with a revolutionary sensing and instant brake feature enabled by TI's TMS320C2000 digital signal controller to detect the difference between wood and a user's finger. When a finger or hand is detected, the SawStop system completely stops and retracts the blade in less than five milliseconds. As a result, many woodworking accidents will now require only Band-Aids instead of emergency medical care. Ultra-Low Power Control * MSP430: The Outrageously Low-Power MCU - Demos of TI's MSP430 devices will show how a small solar cell, or even a grape, can power these highly integrated, 16-bit microcontrollers (MCU), which are designed for high- precision portable and battery-powered applications. A variety of end-user equipments will also be on display, including the Nike Triax Elite Heart Rate Monitor and Speed/Distance Monitor, the Recom Model 100 ECG monitor system, the Masimo Pulse Oximeter and the Fluke 87V Industrial True-rms Multimeter with Temperature display. ARM7-Based Control * TMS470 Catalog MCU - See a demo highlighting recently introduced TMS470 general purpose MCUs, which offer the industry's widest range of memory at up to 1MB of embedded flash along with intelligent, on-chip peripheral options for designs requiring higher levels of performance and flexibility. TI brings proven high reliability to the market as the largest shipper of ARM cores, having delivered over one billion ARM core-based devices into a variety of applications that include safety critical automotive, wireless handsets, IAG imaging, video and digital signal processors (DSP) and dual core processors for telecommunications. Security * Fingerprint Authentication Solution - This all-in-one demo enables the capture, enrollment and verification of human fingerprints in real time. TI's Fingerprint Authentication Development Tool (FADT) is a flexible, low-cost and easy-to-use daughter card and software tool that combines with any one of several TI TMS320C5000(TM) and TMS320C6000(TM) DSP Starter Kits (DSKs) to make a complete fingerprint development environment. * Video Security Solution - This demo showcases the power of TI's TMS320DM642 DSP performing full D1 resolution at 30 frames per second on an MPEG-4 IP camera. This digital solution enables new video surveillance capabilities such as video indexing, biometrics, facial, iris/retinal, alarm management, image storage, privacy zone management, license plate number analyses and many more. Video/Imaging * Video Conferencing - Previously, videophones have been subject to jerky video quality and high unit cost. In response to the exponential growth of the IP videophone market, however, TI and Wintech recently introduced a videophone development platform (VDP) that is designed to help OEMs develop high-quality, cost-effective IP videophones. Based on TI's DM643(TM) DSP, the VDP offers real-time H.264 CIF quality videophones running on a single chip and lets OEMs build high-quality videophones at minimum cost with accelerated time to market. Telecom * Hands-Free Kit - Texas Instruments Hands-Free Kit (HFK) Development Platform is a complete digital signal processor (DSP)-based solution, with real-time voice and audio-enhancing algorithms, and is now available with a Bluetooth Daughter Card. By leveraging the combined HFK Development Platform and Bluetooth Daughter Card, developers will be able to create customized products with superior audio quality and Bluetooth wireless connectivity at a lower price point than is currently available in the market. Getting Started With DSP * Why DSP? Why TI DSP?: Stop by and learn the benefits of designing with a Digital Signal Processor versus other solutions. We will provide an overview of DSP architecture, performance, code generation tools and more. Get an introduction to TI DSP platforms and which applications they best support.
