Using GCC with Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad in CCSv6

From EdWiki

Revision as of 06:28, 19 September 2016 by Jshankar (Talk | contribs)


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.


In this lab, we’ll create a project that contains two source files, main.c and tm4c123gh6pm_startup_ccs_gcc.c, which contain the code to blink an LED on your LaunchPad board. The purpose of this lab is to practice creating projects and getting to know the look and feel of Code Composer Studio. In later labs we’ll examine the code in more detail. So far now, don’t worry about the C code we’ll be using in this lab.
