I've just got myself an AM335x Starter Kit rev1.1A. (the one with DDR3 and a AM3359).
It comes with ICS and Linux on the SD Cards and both of them bootup fine with a nice simple GUI demo. What I looking for is how to connect this board to CCS5.2. I want to be able to read/write some of the registers on the ARM.
More specifically I want to run through the DDR3 PHY SW leveling described here: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/AM335x_DDR_PHY_register_configuration_for_DDR3_using_Software_Leveling
There are some files supplied (a .gel file and an .out file). What are these for? Can someone point me to a walkthrough or tutorial on how to connect this board to CCS so that I can communicate with the registers and run these tests.
Do I need to download the full SDK for this board?
I do not have much experience with CCS, but I have used it for msp430 and Stellaris in the past. Just never connected to Sitara family.
Congrats on the new device!
For CCS, have you checked out the user's guide wiki? See also the wiki entry for the .gel file. Hope that helps. If not, let us know.

Please find the guidelines for project creation and debugging using CCS in the below links. These are from StarterWare User Guide. StarterWare provides non-OS support (similar to StellarisWare).
The latest StarterWare release for AM335x, StarterWare 02.00.00.07 demonstrates EVM-SK peripherals. Please find the details here.
Hope it helps !
