This application report presents basic code for initializing and operating the TMS320LF240x DSP devices. Two functionally equivalent example programs are presented: one written in assembly language and the other in C language. Detailed discussions of each program are provided that explain numerous compiler and assembler directives, code requirements, and hardware-related requirements. The programs are ready to run on either the TMS320LF2407 Evaluation Module (EVM) or the eZdspo.si LF2407 development kit. However, they are also intended for use as a code template for any TMS320LF240x (LF240x) or TMS320LF240xA (LF240xA) DSP target system.
