Install Code Composer Studio

Code Composer Studio v8.1.0 includes a Linaro distribution of the ARM GNU compiler, so programmers have the option of using this GCC Compiler instead of the TI compiler to build their projects.


The objective of this lab exercise is to download and install Code Composer Studio, as well as download the various other support documents and software to be used with this course. These development tools will be used throughout the remaining lab exercises in this course.
