CCS5 CSL for C6455

Is there an updated Chip Support Library for the C6455 that can be built under Code Composer 5?  The latest version I could find is and I notice the release notes and build .bat files are all referring to Code Composer 3 paths.  Thanks!

  • No, sorry, that work was completed long before CCS 5 or even before CCS 4.  I'm a bit hazy now on the details.  Is the batch file simply calling timake.exe for a pjt file?  If that's the case you should be able to import the corresponding pjt project in CCS 5.

    The batch file for building the C6455 big endian has this in it:

    gmake -f Makefile CGTOOLS=ti C64XX_DERIVATIVE=c6455 CORE=c64plus BUILD=release TARGET=c6455 BIG_ENDIAN=1 CSL3X_ROOT_DIR=%CSL3X_ROOT_DIR%\csl_c6455_src %1
    @echo off
    if cleanall EQU %1 goto DONE
    @echo "Copying Lib file to folder %CSL3X_ROOT_DIR%\csl_c6455\lib"
    copy /V /Y %CSL3X_ROOT_DIR%\csl_c6455_src\csl_c6455e.lib %CSL3X_ROOT_DIR%\csl_c6455\lib

    @echo on

    The makefile seems to have lots of dependancies on the directory hierarchy that existed in CCS 3.  I think it would need to be totally re-done.  Does this mean TI is no longer supporting a Chip Support Lib for devices such as the C6455?

    I don't share your conclusions looking at the makefile you posted.  I see zero dependencies on CCS 3.3...  In fact, I just grabbed the CSL and built it without any issue.  Here's what I did:

    1. Extracted CSL to a directory called C:\ti\c6000\csl_c6455_03.00.10.02 on my computer.
    2. Opened a command prompt to that directory.
    3. Ran command "set CSL3X_ROOT_DIR=%CD%", i.e. such that CSL3X_ROOT_DIR=C:\ti\c6000\csl_c6455_03.00.10.02
    4. Make sure that gmake is already on your path.  Install/add if not.  When I run "gmake -v" mine indicates GNU Make 3.81.
    5. Add a c6000 compiler to your path.  I used the one inside CCS 5.1 by executing "set PATH=%PATH%;C:\ccs_5.1.0\ccsv5\tools\compiler\c6000\bin".
    6. Now execute "cd csl_c6455_src".
    7. Now execute "build_c6455e.bat" (or whichever one you want to build).

    just put the .h and .lib in compiler/c6000/inc and use it!

    there is no problem to use the old csl in ccs5.

    u should know ccs is just a framework ,the most important thing is the .exe file such as hex6x.exe and so on.
