Get started

  • Install Code Composer Studio IDE and controlSUITE
  • Connect the LaunchPad using the included mini-USB cable to a computer
  • Open a serial terminal program of your choice (Putty, HyperTerm, etc.) and configure it to access the LaunchPad virtual COM port with 115200 Baud, 8-bit data, No parity, and single stop Bit. The COM port number can be found by opening your computer’s Device Manager
    • Ensure that the XDS200v2’s second port is a serial port. Refer to the XDS100 Wiki for the configuration details
    • Ensure that S4 is in the UP position to enabled the USB<->UART channel
  • When connected to your computer, the device’s internal temperature sensor is sampled to establish a reference temperature and GPIO3 LED is lit in the nibble wide LED display (8 in hexadecimal)
  • Any increase or decrease in temperature is displayed as an increment or decrement of this binary display
  • The serial terminal will display the latest temperature reading
  • Build and load other examples in controlSUITE
  • Ask questions on the TI C2000 e2e forum
