Code Composer studio v3.3

Before you download...

Do you have everything to support that device or target board?


Quick Install Checklist

The following is a general checklist for CCStudio v3.3 that highlights the most common installation and setup issues, especially for new devices and the number of service releases that have been posted for v3.3 of CCStudio. Following these quick tips in our checklist can help avoid confusion and reduce the chance of errors when connecting to your target board.

  1. CCStudio Updates

    Do you have CCStudio support for your device and target board from TI?

    Update CCStudio v3.3 to the latest service release. Support for certain devices require CCStudio to be updated to the correct level. As of Apr 8th, 2009, SR12 is available.

  2. Target Board Content

    Did you install the target board specific files?

    DSK/EVM specific files, such as GEL files used in CCSetup are not always provided by TI in the CCStudio updates and are not supplied by the emulator vendor. They are provided by the board manufacturer. These files also need to be installed and usually accompany the DSK/EVM on CD, labeled something like "EVM target content".

  3. Latest Emulation Drivers (below on this page)

    Did you update emulator drivers that match #1 above?

    After you have installed the latest CCStudio updates to support your device or target board, you need to install the corresponding Blackhawk drivers that match the revision of files installed by CCStudio.

    Each driver is identified and labeled by corresponding CCStudio service release (SR), however it is not always easy to identify through CCStudio, which SR has been installed.  For this, we also include the USCIF version.  You can then compare this version to the one our Blackhawk Detection and System Analysis Tool finds for you.

  4. Gel Files

    Does your target board CCSetup require GEL files not included by TI?

    If the GEL files for your device or target board do not exist as part of the TI CCStudio updates (i.e. provide by TI), then they are usually provided by the board manufacturer (see #2 above).

    This is important because they are not supplied by the emulator vendor or included with predefined imports. You must add them manually. This is especially important for multi-core devices that include ARM CPU (i.e. DM6446, DM365, DM6467, etc.).

A Word on Predefined & Factory Imports

If you do not see a predefined CCSetup import for the DSP the device, DSK, EVM, etc. that you are using, please contact Blackhawk support. We add predefined imports every week for new releases and it very rarely requires any driver updates from us. We can simply email the files.
