  • C2000 MCU Device Hands-on Workshops
    • The C2000 Microcontroller (MCU) Workshops have been developed to help engineers gain a full understanding and complete working knowledge of the C2000 MCU family. Learning is accomplished through a detailed workshop manual and by performing the hands-on lab exercises. Each workshop starts with the basic concepts and progresses to more advanced topics in a logical flow. The topics and lab exercises build on the previous one completed, running a common theme throughout the workshop.

  • Control Law Accelerator (CLA Hands-On Workshop)
    • This training series covers the workings of the Control Law Accelerator (CLA). It begins with a basic introduction to the CLA, its architecture and programming paradigm. There is a hands-on workshop that can be downloaded, and worked through, as you progress through the modules.
