RTOS/TI-RTOS-MCU: Starting a new TI-RTOS project

Part Number: TI-RTOS-MCU

Tool/software: TI-RTOS

The TI-RTOS template no longer shows up in the project templates when starting a new project.  Is there a way to enable this or another way around it other than copying an example (lame)?

  • Hi Rick,

    Which TI-RTOS are you referring to: TivaC, C2000, etc.? How are you trying to access the examples? Can you give the exact details on what you are trying to do?

    I'm actually wondering what the steps are to created a TI-RTOS for CC32xx from scratch.  Some of the training material shows that you start a new CCS project and select the Empty Project under the TI-RTOS template.  However, the RTOS template does not show up anymore.  I've used the Resource Explorer to get the "Hello" example, but this not as easy/nice as using the template.

    Is there a way to have TI-RTOS show up under the Project Templates?

    I'm using CCS V8.3...

    Hi Rick,

    For, which device do you want? CC3200 (older) or CC32XX (e.g. CC3220S, CC3220SF, etc.).

    For the CC3200 device, you can get TI-RTOS examples from the TI-RTOS for CC3200 product: 

    To access the examples, install the 2.16 release on the above page. We recommend just using the default c:\ti location. Start CCS and it should discover the new product(s) (TI-RTOS and maybe XDCtools). After restarting CCS (after the new product is installed), you can open View->Resource Explorer Classic (which searches on your local machine. You should see the examples now. Note: we really should have called it TI-RTOS for CC3200 (not CC32XX).

    Note: if you don't have a Resource Explorer Classic, that means you have an older CCS. In that case, just use Resource Explorer (since the older CCS versions only looked on the local machine). 

    For the newer CC32xx devices, the examples are in the SimpleLink SDK: 

    Again, install the above product in c:\ti and start CCS. CCS should discover the new product. Unless a new XDCtools is needed, you will not have to restart CCS. Look in View->Resource Explorer (NOT classic) to see the examples and can import them into the IDE (right side icon that I high-lighted).

    Thank you Todd. I was able to find the empty project.

    I read in another post that to launch XDCTool you have to right click on the .cfg file. However, since it does not have a .cfg file, how do you launch the XDCTool?
  • In reply to Rick Policy:

    Rick,

    Glad you found it.

    For many of the SimpleLink SDK examples, we have the main application (e.g. empty) and it is dependent upon a kernel project. When you imported the empty project, you should have seen a tirtos_blah_blah project get created also. It contains the .cfg file. Take a look at the SimpleLink SDK User Guide (in the Configuration with TI-RTOS section) for more details on the kernel project.

    We changed the default to open the file as a text file in CCS 8 (or at least I think it was 8...). You can select the .cfg and right-click and select "Open With-> XGCONF". CCS will remember this selection, so in the future, if you just double click it, it will use XGCONF for that .cfg file.

    We found more people liked using the text editor because the graphical tool is slow sometimes.
