The LaunchPad-Nucleo Interface makes it easy to connect the RT Box with LaunchPad development kits from Texas Instruments or Nucleo-64 development boards from STMicroelectronics. It enables users to test control algorithms implemented on TI C2000 and STM32 MCUs without having to develop their own interface hardware. The pinout of the LaunchPad-Nucleo Interface board has been optimized for the following boards:
TI C2000 LaunchPads:
STM32 Nucleo-64 boards:
- STM32G4 Nucleo-64
- STM32F3 Nucleo-64
The LaunchPad-Nucleo Interface can also be used with other LaunchPad or Nucleo-64 boards not listed above, provided that the board physically aligns and connects with the header pins.
Additionally, the board provides access to 8 analog outputs of the RT Box via BNC connectors. It also gives access to 8 digital input and 8 digital output signals of the RT Box via shrouded pin headers. For simple status communication with the RT Box the board features four sliding switches and four LEDs.
The LaunchPad-Nucleo Interface ships with a preprogrammed LaunchXL-F28069M. The demo application running on the C2000 processor is capable of performing real-time control of a BLDC motor. With the RT Box Target Support Package installed, this model can be found in the RT Box Demo Model Library under Motor Drives > Brushless DC Machine Demo Application for LaunchPad-Nucleo Interface.
