The data converter support plug-in is a free tool, which allows the user of Code Composer Studio to create initialization data and configuration software for Texas Instruments data converters based on inputs on a graphical user interface.

The data converter support plug-in (DCP) is a component of TI's Code Composer Studio and offers easy-to-use windows for the "point-and-click" configuration of TI's data converters from within the integrated development environment (IDE), preventing illegal combinations of settings. The DCP automatically creates the necessary interface software and data structures as C source code and inserts this code into the existing user project.
The created files contain the functions necessary to:
- initialize the data converter
- read / write single values
- read / write blocks of data
- perform special control functions (like power-down)
- close the data converter
For a complete list of the supported data converters, please refer to the related devices tab. Or refer to the list of devices found on the Data Converter Plug-In for Code Composer Studio Download Page.
The current version of the tool is revision 4.30 and is an update against the versions included in the Code Composer Studio release 3.1 and any older revision of the tool. It adds support for several devices not included in the previous releases. The free update to the new version can be downloaded either from within the Code Composer Studio using the Update Advisor or from the following page:
