Part Number: TMDX5502EZDSP

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


I have the Spectrum Digital TMDX5502EZDSP evaluation board,

I cannot seem to find the C5502 device in the device list when I try to set up a new project configuration file, although XDS100v2 is selected, pls see attached picture.

Can help to advise how to go about getting C5502 device file for this eval kit ?


  • What version of CCS are you on?  What hostOS are you on (Windows, Linux, macOS)? 

    A few things to note:

    • C55x development is not supported on mac
    • CCS does not ship with the C55x compiler.  It can be installed from the App Center in CCS.  The App Center is accessible from the View menu.  Once in App Center click on the View more button near the top right.  "C5500 Compiler" will be listed.  Select and install it.  The compiler is not part of the standard CCS installation as its license terms are different.  There is no fee but the terms are different.
    • If no C55x device are showing up at all in the project wizard and you are not on mac then it is likely that support for C55x was not installed when CCS was installed.  You can run the installer again and point it to your existing installation and then select to install C55x support.
