LAUNCHXL-F280025C is a low-cost development board for TI C2000™ Real-Time Controllers series of F28002x devices. Ideal for initial evaluation and prototyping, it provides a standardized and easy-to-use platform to develop your next application. This extended version LaunchPad™ development kit offers extra pins for evaluation and supports the connection of two BoosterPack™ plug-in modules.
The F280025 controlCARD is an HSEC180 controlCARD based evaluation and development tool for the C2000™ F28002x series of microcontroller products. controlCARDs are ideal to use for initial evaluation and system prototyping. controlCARDs are complete board-level modules that utilize one of two standard form factors (100-pin DIMM or 180-pin HSEC ) to provide a low-profile single-board controller solution. For first evaluation controlCARDs are typically purchased bundled with a baseboard or bundled in an application kit.

Studio™ (CCS) Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for C2000
Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) that supports TI's Microcontroller and Embedded Processors portfolio. Code Composer Studio comprises a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, and many other features. The intuitive IDE provides a single user interface taking the user through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces allow users to get started faster than ever before. Code Composer Studio combines the advantages of the Eclipse software framework with advanced embedded debug capabilities from TI resulting in a compelling feature-rich development environment for embedded developers.
System configuration tool
SysConfig is a comprehensive collection of graphical utilities for configuring pins, peripherals, radios, subsystems, and other components. SysConfig helps you manage, expose and resolve conflicts visually so that you have more time to create differentiated applications. The tool's output includes C header and code files that can be used with software development kit (SDK) examples or used to configure custom software. The SysConfig tool automatically selects the pinmux settings that satisfy the entered requirements. The SysConfig tool is delivered integrated in CCS, as a standalone installer, or can be used via the dev.ti.com cloud tools portal. For more information about the SysConfig system configuration tool, visit the System configuation tool page.
Various models are available for download from the product Design & development pages. These models include I/O Buffer Information Specification (IBIS) Models and Boundary-Scan Description Language (BSDL) Models. To view all available models, visit the Design tools & simulation section of the Design & development page for each device.
To help assist design engineers in taking full advantage of the C2000 microcontroller features and performance, TI has developed a variety of training resources.
