Other Parts Discussed in Thread: SYSBIOS
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
I have been sent here form the CCS forum because they ran out of ideas.
I have an old project that is based on CCS 5.4 and is based on DSP/BIOS. I have been having quite a few toolchain problems and we have decided it would be a good idea to move to a newer toolchain inf possible (eg. CCS 10).
DSP/BIOS is now depricated and replaced with SYS/BIOS. But SYS/BIOS does not support C55xx.
To me this is rather confusing. Has TI abandoned the C55xx devices? How does anyone develop with these any more?
I suppose that there is still a way to develop on C55xx with more modern tools, but I am finding it hard to get started. Although I have about 40 years of development experience in embedded, this is my first C55xx project.
I have three main questions/requests::
1) Can someone recommend a the versions of CCS, toolchain, environment (libraries etc) that I should use?
2) If SYS/BIOS is dead then what should I use instead?
3) Can someone please recommend where I can find some "How to" style documentation giving a walkthrough using more modern tools? I have a C5535 EZDSP as well as custom hardware with an Olimex XDS100V3.
My preferred host is Linux, but I should be able to work from Windows-based documents too.
