Code Composer Studio v6 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. This page describes how to select and use the GCC compiler to build projects for TivaC devices.


There are two types of installers:

  • Web installers will allow you to perform an install using an installer controlled download process that will only download needed software components. An internet connection is mandatory at install time.
  • Off-line installers are a large archive (about 730MB). When you run it you can select the components to be installed. No internet connection is required at install time. The executable can be used for installing multiple local systems.
