Introduction

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.

WinDows

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.

Download Code Composer Studio (Web installer)

Simply save the file. If you download the Web Installer, simply run the executable installer file. If you download the Off-line installer, unzip it and run the the executable. This will start the CCS install wizard.

NOTE: you have to de-activate your antivirus temporary during the installation, as the installer ask you:

Just in case, in order to be secure, just avoid any web-surfing or torrent or any other internet communication in the meantime.

  1. Read and accept the License Agreement.
  2. Select your CCS install folder (Default is C:/ti) --> click Next
  3. Place a checkmark under "32-Bit ARM MCUs" for:
    Stellaris Device Support
    Tiva C Series Support
    TI ARM Compiler
    GCC ARM Compiler --> click Next
  4. In the Select Select Debug Probes, leave everything as default and click Next
  5. In the App Center, leave everything as default

If everything looks good, click Finish to start your install!

Note: If you have an issue with the web installer not being able to connect to the internet then please try the off-line installer.

Please have patience as It takes some time to do all the work.
