    Kit Overview


    The C2000 High Voltage MPPT kit is intended to jump start engineers in developing solar based inverter and converter applications. Based on the Piccolo F28035F28035, this evaluation board features a two phase interleaved boost stage for maximum power point tracking, and a half-bridge resonant LLC isolation stage, both digitally controlled from a single MCU. Included are Incremental Conductancs and Perturb and Observe algorithms, allowing designers the flexibility to test different options for maximum power point tracking.


    Featuring a 400VDC output voltage, this evaluation board directly complements the TMSHV1PHINVKITTMSHV1PHINVKIT providing a complete DC to AC solar inverter system. Built in USB JTAG emulation eliminates the need for external hardware, and a quick start graphical user interface is included as well. All hardware and software is fully documented, and open source for design use.


    Piccolo™ C28x™ low-cost, high integration 32-bit microcontrollers feature architectural advancements and enhanced peripherals to bring the benefits of 32-bit real-time control to applications typically unable to justify the associated cost. Whether you need fixed-point 40-60 MHz performance with the F2802x series, additional flash memory and CLA for high-efficiency control loops of the F2803x series, or the floating-point, double memory, and new Viterbi complex math unit (VCU) of the F2806x series there is a Piccolo MCU fit for your needs.


    Key Applications: Solar Power Inverters, LED Lighting, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Appliances, Digital Power, Motor Drive and Control, Renewable Energy, Power Line Communications.
