Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) rolled out version 3.3 of its Code Composer Studio Platinum integrated development environment (IDE), which the company claims raises multiprocessor support and analysis features to a higher level to meet the evolving needs of embedded system development.

Enhanced features
With enhanced features such as a new unified breakpoint manager, cache visibility tools and fully integrated profiling and code coverage, version 3.3 gives DSP developers the means to analyze system operation more effectively, according to TI. The new version is designed to meet the needs of increasingly complex DSP embedded systems that employ multiple processors and run very large programs, often with hundreds of thousands of lines of code, the company said.

"The new Code Composer Studio Platinum, version 3.3, provides the in-depth development support needed for building high-performance, power-efficient applications using TI's advanced TMS320 DSPs and DaVinci technology digital video processors," said Lori Vidra, eXpressDSP tools manager at TI. "The release of CCStudio v3.3 enables TI DSP customers to build feature-rich multiprocessing systems that meet the rapidly evolving demands of markets today and in the future."

CCStudio v3.3 is designed to be both powerful and easy to use, TI said. The software installs in a single step and handles multiple processors in a single session and has the same look and feel as previous Code Composer Studio releases, CCStudio v3.3 keeps learning time to a minimum and is easy to update and maintain. For ease of migration, CCStudio v3.3 can be opened alongside older versions of the software, TI said.

Improved visibility
In addition to its support of TI's TMS320C6000, TMS320C5000 and TMS320C2000 DSP platforms, CCStudio v3.3 also provides improved visibility into the use of memory by ARM processors, TI said.

A free evaluation tool for Code Composer Studio Platinum, version 3.3, is available on TI's Website. The product is priced at $3,595 per seat with a $600 annual maintenance fee, TI said. Also available from the same sources is a version of CCStudio v3.3 that supports only C2000 DSPs. Pricing for this version, CCStudio 2000 v3.3, is $495 per seat with an annual maintenance fee of $495, TI said.
