Overview

The MCU+ SDK (Software Development Kit) is a unified software platform for TI embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to examples, benchmarks and demos.  This software accelerates application development schedules by eliminating the need to create basic system software functions from scratch.

The SDK includes a real-time multitasking kernel, network communications support, examples, drivers and bootloaders. The exact content of the SDK depends on the capabilities of the device, but all devices share common APIs (Application Programming Interface) and build on existing proven software components to ensure reliability and quality. The software components are fully tested to ensure that they work together with TI’s Code Composer Studio integrated development environment.

Features
  • FreeRTOS and No-RTOS support on ARM Cortex R5F, ARM Cortex M4F
  • Device drivers for on-chip SOC peripherals and EVM peripherals
  • Bootloaders for different boot media like UART, OSPI flash
  • Networking and industrial protocol support
  • Tight integration with tools:
    • SysConfig tool integration for generating system initialization code for pinmux, peripheral, clock configuration
    • CCS IDE integration with CCS projects for all examples
    • TI Resource Explorer (TIREX) integration for browsing the SDK from within CCS IDE or web browser
    • Flashing tools to flash applications and bootloaders to flash media.
  • Integrated demos and examples including,
    • Simple and ease to use RTOS, No-RTOS and device driver examples
    • Industrial communication protocol examples like EtherCAT
    • Motor control protocol examples for encoders like HDSL and EnDat

Get started


  1. Order either the LP-AM243 or the TMDS243GPEVM.

  2. Launch the cloud-based LP-AM243 out-of-box experience or the TMDS243GPEVM out-of-box experience to perform the quick start and run the out-of-box benchmark demo.

  3. Refer to MCU+ Academy for easy-to-use training modules.
