Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for TI's microcontrollers and processors. It comprises a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. Code Composer Studio is available for download across Windows®, Linux® and macOS® desktops. It can also be used in the cloud by visiting the TI developer zone.
Code Composer Studio includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler and many other features. The intuitive IDE takes you through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces make getting started simple.
Code Composer Studio combines the advantages of the Eclipse® and Theia frameworks with advanced capabilities from TI resulting in a compelling feature-rich environment. The cloud-based Code Composer Studio enables development in the cloud without the need to download and install large amounts of software.
Code Composer Studio is transitioning from Eclipse to the Theia application framework. During this transition both versions will be available and maintained. Support for device families and features will be gradually added to Code Composer Studio Theia. Check the supported devices link below for full details on which devices are currently supported.
Projects are compatible across the Eclipse and Theia versions of Code Composer Studio making it easy to move between them.
Code Composer Studio includes C/C++ compilers tailored to get maximum performance and optimal code size for TI devices. Compilers for proprietary architectures such as MSP430TM, C2000TM and DSPs are included as well as a compiler for Arm®-based microcontrollers. The TI Arm Clang compiler combines LLVM and Clang with TI added features such as link time optimization to provide exceptional code size for TI Arm-based microcontrollers.
Resource Explorer provides access to the resources needed for embedded development. Quickly access examples, training, software development kits and documentation tailored to the device being used. Resource Explorer is included with Code Composer Studio and is also available in the cloud at https://dev.ti.com/tirex.
SysConfig is an intuitive and comprehensive tool for configuring pins, peripherals, drivers, radios and other components. SysConfig simplifies configuration challenges and accelerates software development.
EnergyTrace is an analysis tool that measures and displays the energy profile of an application and helps optimize it for ultra-low-power consumption.
Scripting & automation
Code Composer Studio has a complete scripting environment allowing for the automation of tasks such as testing and performance benchmarking.
