TMS320C5514: CSL inquiry

Part Number: TMS320C5514
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TMS320C5517


Good day.

Our customer has an inquiry regarding the TMS320C5514. Kindly refer below.

"I'm trying to direct the linker of CCS v10 to the CSL for my TMS320C5517, but I cannot find the "lib" file in the CSL directory, what can I do? In other words, how can I tell the linker to search for CSL files with CSL 3.08 for C55 devices?

I have downloaded and installed the CSL library for my TMS320C5517 DSP, but I don't know how to tell the linker of CCS10 to search in the CSL directory
The file manager searches for a "lib", "a", or "cmd" type of file, but I cannot find a good one for my project
The readme files direct me to the processors wiki page of TI site, but it is not up anymore (RIP)"

Looking forward to your inputs on this matter. Thank you.



  • Hi,

    You should be using C5000 CGT 4.4.1.

    If the library files aren't in the installed content, import the CCS project for the CSL library in c55_lp\c55_csl_3.08.01\ccs_v6.x_examples\C55XXCSL_LP and rebuild.

    The CSL library (.lib) file is located in:

    • Debug build: c55_lp\c55_csl_3.08.01\ccs_v6.x_examples\C55XXCSL_LP\Debug\C55XXCSL_LP.lib
    • Release build: c55_lp\c55_csl_3.08.01\ccs_v6.x_examples\C55XXCSL_LP\Release\C55XXCSL_LP.lib

    Inside CCS, right-click on your project.

    On the left-hand side of the window, expand Build -> C5000 Linker.

    Click on "File Search Path".

    Under "Include library file or command file as input", add CSL library name, "C55XXCSL_LP.lib".

    Under "Add <dir> to library search path", add folder containing CSL .lib file (e.g. c55_lp\c55_csl_3.08.01\ccs_v6.x_examples\C55XXCSL_LP\Debug).
