Please advice on the free compiler options for Ti Tiva C launch pad.
Hello, this is Matthew. How about using TI's CCS 7?
Wiki Quote; Code Composer Studio (CCS) comes bundled with a version of the TI Code Generation Tools (CGT) for each supported Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). The CCS IDE default configuration is to use the CGT installation that it comes with when building a project.
Supports Windows/Mac OS/Linux 64-bit OS.
Licensing: CCSv7 is now Technology Software Publicly Available (TSPA) compliant. This means that it does not require a paid license.
Check out TI's Tiva C Series LaunchPad Workshop videos.
Thanks Mattew for the quick reply, have you worked with CCS, any limitations you are aware of.
Hello, come to think of it, CCS's CGT is not the best compiler.
Obviously, IAR's or Keil-MDK's compiler will be the best.
However, since you are looking for a free compiler, I think CCS will be just suitable.
I'm not an expert on compilers. So I cannot answer about CGT's limitation.
Before ending this, I wish to add comments about various features provided by CCS 7.
This IDE supports- MISRA C code checking- Graph plot
One frustrating thing is that you have to disable the firewall or security settings to install CCS.
But personally, CCS is quite nice if- you are used to Eclipse environment (CCS is based on Eclipse)- you use the aforementioned various features.
Take time for your consideration.
