What's a good way to ramp-up on TI-RTOS?

  • Unfortunately, this is not a simple question to answer. It really depends on the device and the version of TI-RTOS (SYS/BIOS) you are using. Besides the below discussion, please refer to the training section on the main TI-RTOS FAQ page: https://e2e.ti.com/support/processors/f/791/t/840835?-FAQ-Where-can-I-find-TI-RTOS-or-SYS-BIOS-FAQs- 

    SimpleLink Devices (CC13xx, CC26xx, CC32xx, MSP432)

    Please refer to the SimpleLink Quick Start Guide and then look at the TI-RTOS Basics lab in SimpleLink Academy. There is additional information in the SimpleLink Documentation Overview page also.

    The SimpleLink Academy lab will give an overview of the kernel and it's associated debugging tools. It then steps you through how to import, build, run, and debug a TI-RTOS based application.

    Processors (Sitara, Vayu, etc.)

    The TI-RTOS kernel (SYS/BIOS) comes in the Processors SDK. Please refer to is documentation on how to get up and running with a SYS/BIOS based example.

    TI-RTOS <Device> Product (TivaC, MSP430, and Concerto)

    TI-RTOS <device> products were the precursor to the SimpleLink SDK. Please look at the Getting Started Guide in the product to see how to import, build, run and debug a TI-RTOS based example.

    Stand-alone SYS/BIOS product (non-Concerto C2000 devices)

    Some versions of the stand-alone SYS/BIOS product have a Getting Started Guide that spells out how to import examples. Here is an example of that document: http://software-dl.ti.com/dsps/dsps_public_sw/sdo_sb/targetcontent/bios/sysbios/6_35_02_45/exports/bios_6_35_02_45/docs/Bios_Getting_Started_Guide.pdf 

    You can use the CCS New Project wizard to import a SYS/BIOS based example (Project->New CCS Project...).
