The C6000 Compiler Tools version 7.3.0 Production Release is now available.
If you are using the Compiler Tools from within CCS, use the Software Updates tool in the CCS Help menu to obtain 7.3.0.
For users not using CCS, the compiler tools can be downloaded from the following location:
Here are the highlights of this release:
This compiler has improvements to increase the performance of certain “control-code” loops.
This compiler has improvements that increase the performance of certain C6600 loops.
In addition to increases in performance for C6600 loops, other loops have improved performance. In internal testing, 3.4% of C64+ loops show improved performance. Those loops that improve show increased performance by a geomean of 130%.
This compiler supports new compiler and linker options that enable creation of object files and dynamic object modules that are compliant with the C6000 Linux ABI as set forth in the C6000 EABI Specification (SPRAB89.pdf). This release supports the capability to create C6000 Linux ABI compliant object files that can be incorporated into a dynamic executable object or a dynamic shared object (DSO). It also supports the creation of dynamic executables and dynamic shared objects (DSO) that are C6000 Linux ABI compliant. This dynamic executable or DSO can then be incorporated into a dynamic process system which utilizes dynamic modules that are created by the TI tools and/or the GCC tools. For further details on the C6000 Linux ABI, please see the C6000 EABI Specification (SPRAB89). For further details about support for the C6000 Linux ABI in the C6000 Code Generation Tools, please see the C6000 Linux Support wiki site:
Please see the README.txt file in the v7.3.0 Compiler Tools package for additional information.

Where can I find the download page for the TMS470 code generation tool (ARM)?
As of now, I would be interested in 4.9.6, or if there is any newer. Thank you in advance.
The only way to obtain ARM compiler updates is through the Software Update feature of Code Composer Studio.
Thanks and regards,

That sounds quite bad for people not using CCS... I feel that an overkill for installing this.
My workflow is command line based, and I would not like to change habit. Also, CCS should also get the url from somewhere, so it should be publicly available unless some internal credential authentication is hard coded in which would be silly. :-)
Any updates about it?
No. This policy is unlikely to be changed.
Note that, even though the only way to download the ARM compiler is from within CCS, you can still execute the compiler from the command line. The ARM compiler is installed in a directory similar to C:\ti\ccsv5\tools\compiler\arm_5.0.3. Add C:\ti\ccsv5\tools\compiler\arm_5.0.3\bin to your path so you can invoke the compiler from the command line.
Yeah, you can, but that is a different topic. ;-)
