EK-TM4C1294XL: ti.exosite.com

Part Number: EK-TM4C1294XL

Hi Team, seeking for your assistance.

For  EK-TM4C1294XL, the http://ti.exosite.com is already no accesible. Do we have a workaround for this?  

Thank you.

  • Hi Mark,

      Please refer to this app note about exosite.

  • Mark, Regarding your last message, thank you. I already have that document and have tried what it suggests. When i try to go to Exosite, there are no free of charge options, only different levels/tiers of payment subscriptions. I am just getting started with TI and embedded development and am in no way prepared to pay monthly subscriptions. Please advise next steps.

  • Is the goal to develop an IoT device, or is the goal to learn to use the processor? If it's the latter, then there's no need for the Exosite stuff at all.

  • Hi Jim,

      Looks like there is a change of business model at Exosite. I'm waiting for more details from Exosite. I will update this post when it is ready.

  • Not IoT necessarily. I purchased this board specifically because it has Ethernet. The primary interest is communications (Serial, USB, Ethernet) and digital I/O. Past that, skies the limit and yes IoT is of interest. At this point, i cant even get the IP address of the unit without connecting to Exosite, which i cannot do. At the end of the day, I am very new to embedded development and looking for a good hassle free starting point.

  • Hi Jim,

      If you want to get started with Ethernet then there are quite a few examples in TivaWare library. Not sure if you downloaded TivaWare yet. If not please download from https://www.ti.com/tool/SW-TM4C.

      Once TivaWare library is installed you can find the Ethernet examples in the below locations. I will suggest you start with enet_tcpecho_server or enet_lwip or enet_io. Connect your board to the network with the Ethernet cable and run these examples and you will see the DHCP IP address displayed on the terminal window. 

  • Thank you for the information. Yes, i have the latest TivaWare library installed. I will start with the examples you have suggested and report back if there are any issues.
