CCS/CC1350STK: Empty project debug session not as expected

Part Number: CC1350STK
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LAUNCHXL-CC2640R2, CC13XXWARE, CC2650STK

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


CCS 9.1 Linux MInt 18

CC1350STK and empty_min_CC1350STK_TI

The project is supposed to blink a LED, but nothing happens. Also right after launching a debug session, the target is running and doesn't stop at main (although this is checked in debug settings that I haven't modified ).

Here is the screen shot after having clickec on the Bug icon of said project that I haven't modified (including the target configuration):



  • Hi Peter,

    I just tried the Empty example found in CC13x0 SDK in CCS 9.1 (Windows 10, I do not have Linux Mint 18). The project build and when I launch a debug session on a CC1350SDK it stops at main and when I press resume the LED start blinking. 

    What SDK are you using?

    Best Regards,


  • Hi R.M.

    First, to answer your question, here is a screen shot:

    2) I noticed that I started the wrong project when I opened the ticket.

    What seems to happen in CCS is this:

    - I have an active project A (name in bold in the project explorer)

    - I select another project B (name becomes bold) and I start a debug session

    - the debug session fails and I am returned to the Edit Perspective

    - interestingly the previous project A is again the active one.

    Can you verify this behavior on CCS  Version: ?

    3) I now have a working debug session and the LED blinks, but only after I modified the target conf file and the debug configuration (Target tab):

    Here are the original settings that came with the empty project:

    The target configuration:

    And the debug configuration:

    These didn't work for me.

    Here is what seems to work:

    Target conf:

    Debug conf:

    Could you share the recommend settings / your settings with me ?

    Kind regards


  • Hi Peter,

    1. It looks like you are using an quite old SDK version. Can you try to upgrade to the latest SDK that can be found here:

    2. I have not been able to reproduce this. On my side project B is still active after a failing debug session. 

    3. Both settings work for me. I have tried this with both a LAUNCHXL-CC2640R2 as XDS110 debugger and SimpleLink SensorTag Debugger DevPack as XDS110 debugger. What XDS110 debugger are you using?

    Best Regards,


  • Hi RM

    My debugger is here.

    Could you please send me shot of the products you have installed .

    I have now this:

    But this gives me an error:

  • Hi Peter,

    Here's the settings for the tirtos_builds_CC1350STK_release_ccs (empty_CC1350STK_tirtos_ccs inherited this):

    Here's the setting for the empty_CC1350STK_tirtos_ccs:

    Looks like you are using a old XDCtools version?

    Best Regards,


  • Hi R.M.

    In the pics you inserted, I can only see the Products Page, not the target conf neither the debug settings. Could you insert these as well ?

    Kind regards


  • Hi R.M.

    I can confirm that the empty project and other sample projects for the CC1350STK (and the CC2650STK) now work fine.

    I am using the Sensor Tag DevPack rather than the XDS110 standalone debug probe and I can use the target configuration in the samples without further

    modifications. I removed the battery during debugging. I don't quite understand why the connection problems mentioned in this post disappeard after switching to the the DevPack debug probe, though.

    Anyway, many thanks !

    Kind regards
