CCS: CCS for TMS320C6412

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TMS320C6412

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


I have to developp some code for a board based upon an old chip: a TMS320C6412.

I have downloaded several release of CCS (v8, V7 and V5) but none of them support the component (or at least the complier installed with those releases do not support TMS320C6412 any more)...

Is it a way to develop code for this component (installing a CCS release and a separate compiler) ?

Thank you for your help.

  • For C6412 you can use CCSv8 but you will need to download and install an older C6000 compiler.

    You can do that in a couple of different ways.

    From within CCS

    1. go to Help -> Install Code Generation Compiler Tools
    2. type C6000 Compiler Tools in the filter box to make the list much shorter
    3. You will want to install the 7.4 compiler.  The latest version of that is 7.4.24.  Just check the box beside it and then click the next button at the bottom of the dialog box.
    4. Click next again
    5. Accept the license and click Finish

    That will start the process of installing the compiler.  It will at some point prompt you to restart CCS.

    Alternatively you can download and install the compiler from here:

    If you choose the default location CCS should automatically discover it the next time it starts up.  If not you can point CCS to it in the Preferences dialog under Code Composer Studio -> Build -> Compiler.



  • Thank you very much John. This resolved my problem !
    Best regards.
