StarterWare for ARM® and DSP based TI processors




ARM and DSP StarterWare provides C-based no-OS platform support for the ARM and DSP platforms. StarterWare provides device abstraction layer libraries, peripheral programming examples such as Ethernet, graphics and USB, and board level example applications. StarterWare can be used stand-alone or with an RTOS.

  • Peripheral programming interface
  • Example applications for each peripheral to demonstrate programming and usage of the peripheral
  • Software portability across devices for a given peripheral
  • Tool-chain agnostic C code (Some startup code will be in assembly and hence some part of the code will be tool dependent)
  • Support for Windows(R) host and Linux host
  • Support for the following tool chains:
    • Open source code generation tools (gcc) for ARM
    • TI DSP code generation tools
  • Graphics library and USB stack ported with example applications
  • Doxygen based application programming interface (API) reference guide available with delivery package
