The TMDSSOLARPEXPKIT is a solar explorer development kit based on TMS320F28035 Piccolo microcontroller. This kit is intended to give designers the opportunity to evaluate different power stages used in solar applications in a safe, low voltage environment. This kit also offers designers of single panel off grid applications such as lighting or motor control systems a robust development platform to start from by utilizing the 36Vdc intermediate bus. All of the primary application power stages are controlled with a single C2000 MCU, including a single switch boost stage for maximum power point tracking, a SEPIC battery charging stage, and a grid tie capable DC to AC inverter stage capable of outputting 24Vac. Integrated USB JTAG emulation eliminates the need for external JTAG development hardware. A built in panel emulation circuit also allows designers to evaluate different shading situations without the need for expensive external hardware.
