The kit provides an example system with capabilities for hardware fault injection, application and run-time profiling of fault diagnostics and system response monitoring in real-time.
It can be used to evaluate performance of SafeTI components for use in their safety-critical designs. This includes either Hercules TMS570LS31x microcontrollers or RM48x MCUs and TPS65381-Q1 power management integrated circuit with TI’s Hercules SafeTI Diagnostic Library.
A second MCU on the evaluation board acts as test control and monitor unit, and manages communication with the GUI.
Also included is an on-board JTAG emulator, accelerometer, CAN transceiver, LCD module, temperature sensor and host/debug interface with a USB HUB controller and a serial communication port converter.
There is also an evaluation version of SAFERTOS from Wittenstein High Integrity Systems.
And the latest version of TI’s Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio IDE for use with the emulator.
