Overview

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 you 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.

Additional Information

 

Getting Started

The Getting Started View provides quick access to a number of common actions such as creating a new project or browsing examples. For users who wish to use a very clean user interface, Code Composer Studio has a "simple" mode which trims down the environment to just the essential functionality. Once comfortable with the environment it is easy to switch back to standard mode to expose more advanced capabilities.

App Center

More than just a development environment is required to do meaningful development on a chosen platform. The Code Composer Studio App Center provides access to additional software and tools to help users get up and running faster on their chosen platform.

Compiler

For high performance processors like multicore DSPs it is essential to have a C compiler that can take full advantage of the performance capabilities of the device. The C6000 highly-optimizing C/C++ VLIW compiler is designed with this purpose in mind. It performs a wide variety of optimization techniques including automatically software pipelines inner loops, an extensive set of SIMD operations can speedup algorithms by up to 16x a large range of performance vs. code size options. However it is equally if not more important to ensure the quality of the code produced is of the highest level. The compiler is verified against industry-standard benchmarks (Plum Hall, Perennial, ACE…) and several validation suites. Continual evaluation of the compiler’s performance on thousands of benchmarks, ensures performance stability of compiled code across releases.

Processor Trace

Many high performance TI processors include the ability to perform processor trace. Trace provides detailed, historical account of code execution, timing and data accesses. This advanced capability is extremely useful in detecting complex, intermittent bugs as wells as profiling to help fine tune code performance. Trace data can be captured to dedicated on-chip memory (ETB) or exported over pins to be captured by a trace receiver.

Linux Development

Code Composer Studio supports both Linux kernel and application level development. The kernel can be debugged via JTAG or use GDB for application development. By installing the Linux Development Tools via the App Center you also get access to additional functionality such as the Linux Trace Tools (LTTng).

System Analyzer

System Analyzer provides visibility into the application, OS and hardware across the system at any given time by correlating software and hardware instrumentation from multicores on the same timeline. System Analyzer is made up of two core components:

  • UIA (Unified Instrumentation Architecture): a software package for logging, runtime control and data movement
  • Analysis Displays: Tooling for runtime control, data collection, data decoding, data analysis and data visualization

System Analyzer can obtain data in a number of ways. It can be captured to the on chip embedded trace buffer (ETB), it can be streamed off the device using System Trace via an XDS560v2 System Trace Receiver or you can have the application continually drain the ETB and push the data out over Ethernet. This gives you the flexibility to choose the method that best suites your application needs.
