Abstract

This chapter provides a fundamental and basic introduction to one of the updated microcontroller units (MCU) LaunchPad™, Tiva™ C Series TM4C123G made by Texas Instruments™. Both theoretic introductions about modern control technologies with simulations and hands-on techniques with actual control programming codes are provided in this chapter. This combination will enable students to easily and successfully implement theoretic knowledge to real process (DC motors) to build a complete control system.

The entire and complete development tools and kits can be categorized into two parts; the Hardware Package and the Software Package.

The hardware package includes

  • TM4C123GH6PM Microcontroller Unit (MCU).

  • Tiva™ C Series LaunchPad™ TM4C123GXL Evaluation Board (EVB).

  • EduBASE ARM® Trainer (contains most popular peripherals and interfaces).

  • Some other related peripherals and interfaces, such as DC Motors, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) module and Quadrature Encoder Interface (QEI).

The software package includes

  • Integrated Development Environment Keil® ARM®-MDK µVersion®5.24a (IDE).

  • TivaWare™ SW-EK-TM4C123GXL Software Driver Package.

  • Stellaris In-Circuit Debug Interface (ICDI).

This chapter provides a fundamental and basic introduction to one of the updated microcontroller unit (MCU) LaunchPad™, Tiva™ C Series TM4C123G made by Texas Instruments™. One significant difference between this book and all other books is: This book provides not only the theoretic introductions and discussions about modern control technologies with simulations but also practical and hands-on techniques with actual control programming codes. This combination will enable students to easily and successfully implement theoretical knowledge to real process (DC motors) to build a complete control system. Therefore it is important to have a clear picture about the configurations on hardware and software about this LaunchPad before we can dig a little deeper.
