Code Composer Studio includes a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes compilers for each of TI´s device families, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, simulators and many other features. The Code Composer Studio IDE provides a single user interface taking you through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces allow users to get started faster than ever before and add functionality to their application thanks to sophisticated productivity tools.
As of version 4 Code Composer Studio is based on the Eclipse open source software framework. The Eclipse software framework is used for many different applications but it was originally developed as an open framework for creating development tools. We have chosen to base CCS on Eclipse as it offers an excellent software framework for building software development environments and is becoming a standard framework used by many embedded software vendors. CCS combines the advantages of the Eclipse software framework with advanced embedded debug capabilities from Texas Instruments resulting in a compelling feature rich development environment for embedded developers.
