Tool/software: TI-RTOS

I see TI-RTOS and SYS/BIOS used interchangeably and available in multiple places across Texas Instrument's websites. How should I go about installing TI-RTOS?

 

  • TI-RTOS versus SYS/BIOS

    The TI-RTOS Kernel (formerly known as SYS/BIOS) is Texas Instrument's proprietary Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) providing preemptive multi-threading, synchronization services, memory management, and interrupt handling. SYS/BIOS is the "TI-RTOS Kernel" component. Both names refer to the same thing. You may see the "TI-RTOS Kernel" name in other documents and on Texas Instrument's websites. This new name does not require any code changes on your part; directory and module names are not affected by this change. TI-RTOS (SYS/BIOS) is provided with full source code and requires no up-front or run-time license fees.

    Downloading TI-RTOS

    TI-RTOS is not installed automatically as part of the Code Composer Studio™ (CCS) installation. TI-RTOS may be obtained through a number of ways:

    1. SimpleLink™ Software Development Kit (SDK)
    2. Processor SDK
    3. SYS/BIOS product
    4. TI-RTOS legacy product
    5. TI Cloud Tools

    The following list will help you determine where to download TI-RTOS based on your device.

    • For SimpleLink devices such as CC13XX, CC26X2, CC2640R2, CC32XX, MSP432E4, and MSP432P4, TI-RTOS is included in the SimpleLink SDK. For customers that are currently using a legacy TI-RTOS product (e.g. TI-RTOS for CC13XX/CC26XX v2.21.00.06) and want an updated release should get the new corresponding SimpleLink SDK product. Below is a list of SimpleLink SDKs:

    • For devices such as Sitara™, Jacinto™, and C6000™ processors, TI-RTOS is included in the processor's SDK.
      • Click here for additional SYS/BIOS versions not available in a Processors SDK
    • For devices such as MSP430™, TM4C (Tiva™ C), CC2650, CC3200, and Concerto, TI-RTOS is available via the legacy TI-RTOS download page.
    • For all C2000™ devices (except Concerto), use the SYS/BIOS product.

    Installing TI-RTOS

    During installation, we recommend you install in the default directory (c:\ti or $home/ti). This will allow the CCS IDE to automatically detect your installation.

    If you choose to install your product elsewhere, you must select Windows->Preferences->Code Composer Studio->RTSC->Products within your CCS IDE and add the path to your installation.

    XDCtools is always included with the product installation. TI-RTOS is validated with the XDCtools version included in the installation.

    TI-RTOS on TI Cloud Tools

    TI-RTOS is also accessible from TI Cloud Tools through a number of product SDKs. This enables development without the need to download and install any software. There is no fee to use any of TI Cloud Tools available at dev.ti.com. TI Cloud Tools include CCS Cloud, a simplified environment designed for users who are evaluating TI platforms and need a quick way to run demo applications or try out examples.
