Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BOOSTXL-BUCKCONV, POWERSUITE, SFRA, C2000WARE, CONTROLSUITE
Our customer bought the LAUNCHXL-F28069M and BOOSTXL-BUCKCONV and they are having trouble on using it. Kindly see their inquiry below.
"Attached are the directory structure of the CCS installation and the help->about dialog box of CCS. These are the items I have installed; if not I'll gladly provide you with whatever you need.
What I am trying to accomplish is to locate the BUCKXTL-BUCKCONV sample application, build it, load it onto the F28069M, and run it. Then I want to experiment with different buck control typologies. Beyond that I want to use what used to be called powersuite to generate different control configurations for the Buck converter. In addition i want to use the SFRA component to analyze the frequency response of the various configurations.
At the moment my problem is I cannot even find the sample BUCK software for the F28069M. I am confused about how CCS works. I have a little experience with tool chains form other vendors, STM32CubeIDE, IAR, CODE, and others. These all have similar structures as does Eclipse; CCS is apparently much more.
I have found some examples for the F28069M and have attempted to build them. One had linker errors because the sample had a non standard entry point name. I was able to build the led blink sample without error, but I could not find a way to upload it to the F28069M. There was no "Upload", "Run", or "Debug" control that I could find.
So, in summary, I think my difficulty boils down to finding the sample applications for the BUCK converter and loading the compiled and linked code onto the F28069M and debugging it.
Any help you may be able to provide will greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to your inputs.
