Because the PGA460 operates exclusively as a slave device, a master controller or processor device is required to configure and run the PGA460. The user's guide for this EVM focuses on the master device, and only uses the MSP-EXP430F5529LP as an example master device for demonstration purposes when paired with the BOOSTXL-PGA460 evaluation module. TI recommends that users first evaluate the performance of the PGA460 using the PGA460-Q1 evaluation module GUI software, along with the BOOSTXL-PGA460 and MSP-EXP430F5529LP to become familiar with the device features. Then the user can advance to the PGA460PSM-EVM once transducer selection and optimization have been finalized.
- Compatible with ultrasonic transducers operating at a center frequency between 30kHz to 80kHz and 180kHz to 480kHz
- Able to generate maximum sound-pressure level using transformer-driven methods
- Access to all communication interfaces offered by PGA460, including
