SwitchGear can use any of the standard code development toolchains for C2000 MCUs.
Use TI's Code Composer Studio™ (CCS) integrated development environment to develop and debug embedded applications for C2000 MCUs. CCS includes a source code editor, optimising C/C++ compiler, debugger and more.
A free license is available for CCS when used with the low cost XDS100 debug probe.
TI's controlSUITE™ software is a repository for C2000 support materials:
Use a standard XDS100 or XDS510 debug probe (JTAG emulator). These allow CCS to load code into the MCU and visualise its operation in real-time.
The SwitchGear Base has a 14-pin JTAG connector for connection of the debug probe.
An optional JTAG isolation adapter mounts inside SwitchGear and blocks EMI in the JTAG USB cable.
Use third-party tools to convert graphical models of your control into C code.
Mathworks Simulink® with Embedded Coder® and PowerSim's PSIM® with SimCoder module can both target TI C2000 MCUs.
