TMDX5505EZDSP: EZDSP setup using Code Composer Studio 7

Part Number: TMDX5505EZDSP


I'm using the C5505 eZdsp USB stick development tool with CCS version 7. Sadly, all the information I can find online to setup the device uses version 4 or 5, which do not run on Windows 10 (which I'm using). So the tutorials are not of much help.

Can anyone point me to a step-by-step guide to run the examples using a more recent version of CCS? I cannot even connect to the device at this point and am getting quite frustrated with the lack of support for the product. Thanks for any assistance.

    I'm able to set up the target configuration, but am still having trouble with simple example programs. When I tried to build a "hello world" program, I could not build. Wish I could show a screen shot, but see below for compiler output. Any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    The Console I/O (printf, scanf, sprintf, etc.) routines are very memory hungry and therefore don't fit in a single segment of the C5500 devices.

    You can, however, combine multiple sections in your linker .cmd file as mentioned in section 4.4. of the link below:

    Hope this helps,
