C6000 code generation tools compiler




The TI C6000 C/C++ Compiler and Assembly Language Tools support development of applications for TI C6000 Digital Signal Processor platforms, including the C66x multi-core, C674x and C64x+ single-core Digital Signal Processors.

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).
