Trying to program the internal flash mem in a ezdsp tms320lf2407A

Hi. I know the ezdsp tms320lf2407A is rather an old product, but precisely it is the kind of board I have at the reach of my hand. I've developed a project using the original CCS version that came with the product, debugging it from the RAM. Now I wish to put my code inside the CHIP to run it in standalone mode, in MC mode. The thing is that I've been searching the web, TI's site, SD site, etc., and I haven't found the proper information and/or software to do this. I found all the stuff about SDFlash, but I'm nearly sure that this programmer, in it's original form, cannot program the Flash. I found out that a plug-in for CCS does exist, but I couldn't find it. I think that the required plug-in is: TMS320LF24xx Flash Programmer 1.1.01 Texas Instruments, but so far it has been impossible to me to find it. Can anyone assist me?

Another thing: what changes should be done in the project to make it run  from the Flash? Consider that so far it has been running from the on-board RAM.

Any assistance you can provide me will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,

  • Hey, guys, I still need urgently this plug-in, if you know a place from which I could get it, please let me know. This is a still an active post. Thank you.

    Are you using CCS 3.3? CCSv4 and higher do not support F24xx devices. In CCS 3.3, the on-chip flash programmer should be available from the CCS menu Tools->F24xx On-Chip Flash Programmer

    This application note describes what is required to run from internal Flash on F28xx devices: http://www.ti.com/general/docs/litabsmultiplefilelist.tsp?literatureNumber=spra958k
    Although this is written for F28x devices the concepts should be similar for F24xx devices, so you may use it as a guideline.

    I'm not aware if any out-of-box examples that run from Flash exist for F24xx devices. You could ask that in the C2000 device forum to see if anyone watching that forum is aware of any.
