Overview

The TI C2000 C/C++ Compiler and Assembly Language Tools support development of applications for TI C2000 Microcontroller platforms, including the Concerto (F28M3xx), Piccolo (280xx), Delfino Floating-Point (283xx), and C2000 Fixed-Point (2823x/280x/281x) Microcontroller devices.

Code Composer Studio is the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for TI embedded devices.  If you are looking to develop on a TI embedded device it is recommended to start by downloading Code Composer Studio as it includes the TI compilers.  If you are already a user of Code Composer Studio the best way to update the compiler is to go to the Help menu and select to install compilers (please see Getting compiler updates in CCS for more details).

Features
  • Available in release 20.12.0.STS:

    • Live Firmware Update feature for C28/CLA firmware update support
    • Generate CRCs over memory ranges
    • C28 has more efficient data accesses for lower 16-bits of memory when using location attribute or literal addresses.
    • The Integer Division Unit (--idiv_support=idiv0) has performance updates.
    • CLA has a performance improvement with more efficiently loading 16-bit constants.
    • Enumerated type changes.
    • Misra support deprecated
  • Available in release 20.2.0.LTS:
    • Hex utility tool new option --cmac (cipher-based message authentication protocol) will apply cmac algorithm to user defined regions and generate cmac tags for secure boot support.
    • The Integer Division Unit (--idiv_support=idiv0) has performance, diagnostic, and build attribute updates.
    • Memcpy inlining with RPT now supported for more than 255 words (up to 65535).
    • FPU64 RTS library trig float routines sinf/cosf/tanf/cbrtf are now the same for fpu32 and fpu64 --float_support modes.
    • New diagnostic checks were added for: block/non-blocked access, function calls between c28/cla code, FPU64 assembler checks, and --advice:performance for fpu32/fpu64.
    • VCU register save/restore support for ISRs with --isr_save_vcu_regs option.
    • Default file extension for compiler generated object files updated to .c.obj and .cpp.obj

    • Support for TMU1 instructions
    • Support for VCRC device
    • Support for integer division hardware extension
  • Available in C2000 Code Generation Tools starting with release v18.1.0.LTS:
    • CLA code size improvement
    • Optimization of volatile bitfield assignments
    • Prefer direct addressing with –cla_support=cla[12] option
    • Improved stack usage with inline functions
  • Available in C2000 Code Generation Tools starting with release v16.9.0.LTS:
    • Improved Stack Usage Utilization
    • Support for LZSS compression
    • Compressed section alignment
    • Improved inlining
    • Removal of duplicate and unneeded compiler options

TI Compiler Support

TI has an active, responsive E2E™ community, where support is available for TI compilers. Additional support articles:

Long-term and short-term support

Long-term support (LTS) releases are actively maintained for approximately two years with reported defects being repaired as follows:

  • Production stop defects are addressed within 2 weeks,
  • Critical defects are addressed within 90 days, and
  • Defect repairs are proactively applied to each release stream
Short-term support (STS) releases are only supported until the next release becomes available meaning that:
  • Only production stop defects may cause patch releases to be created,
  • Patch releases for STS releases will not be planned, and
  • Defect repairs will not be proactively applied to each release stream
  • For more information about the distinction between LTS and STS compiler releases, please see the article: Introduction to LTS and STS Compiler Releases

  • Optimizing C/C++ Compiler
  • Assembler
  • Linker
  • C/C++ standard header files
  • C/C++ runtime libraries
  • Object file display and manipulation utilities
Archived releases (not actively supported)
