RTOS/TI-RTOS-MCU: Where is the latest TI-RTOS configuration tool for CC32xx

Tool/software: TI-RTOS

I'm in the process of taking the TI-RTOS training, and was wondering where the GUI configuration tool resides for CCS V8?  I have downloaded a xdctool zip file for V8, but how do you plug it into CCS?

  • Hi,

    You need to right click on the .cfg file and edit it with XGCONF.

    Thank you.  I'm now able to see the XGCONF tool.

    However, I have a more questions:

    1) I imported the SWI example from the CC3220SF repository, and viewed the swi.cfg settings in XGCONF.  The SWI example uses both HWI and SWI, but they are not shown in the "instance" tab.  Is there a way to have them show up?  Maybe an import or sync option?

    2) If you are starting a TI-RTOS project from scratch, then how do you start XGCONF?  It seems like the only way right now is to right click on an existing .cfg file.

    Hi Rick,

    Which version of CCS are you using? We've had some problems with some of the 8.0 or 8.1 versions in reagrds to the XGCONF display. Can you attach a snapshot of the GUI 's instance window that you mentioned and also the text that creates the Hwi and Swi instances from the .cfg file.

    We used to default to XGCONF, but more customers use the text approach. Internally we use it more also and prefer it when communicating among ourselves and with customers. It's easier to give a couple lines of text instead of a snapshot.

    I'm using CCS Version 8.3.

    Attached are code, cfg, and XGCONF snippets...

    Thanks.

    You are creating the Swi dynamically (during runtime). This will not show up in XGCONF. XGCONF allows you to create objects "statically". Hopefully this page will make this more clear: processors.wiki.ti.com/.../TI-RTOS_Object_Creation_Comparison
