Description

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.

Features
  • 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

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 60 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
