Release 2.20

·         Support for CCS 2.2


  1. If you have previously installed a CCS 2.x emulation driver or a CCS 2.4 alpha/beta driver then uninstall these drivers.
  2. Run SetupCCSOMAP_v24000.exe.  The install directory should be your current Code Composer Studio install directory, generally “c:\CCStudio”.
  3. If using an XDS510USB emulator, unplug and replug the USB cable to force a complete driver update.
  4. If this is first time install of the XDS510USB hardware then Windows will pop up the Hardware Install Wizard to install USB drivers.  If this occurs you need to direct the wizard to look in the directory <CCS_INSTALLDIR>\specdig\xds510usb to find the USB .inf/.sys files.  Once Windows has completed the hardware setup, unplug and replug the USB cable.


  1. CCS 2.21 drivers are forward compatible with CCS 2.4/3.x with two exceptions. First CCS 2.21 drivers lack the Connect/Disconnect feature but will work in CCS 2.4x/3.x environment.  Second, testing has shown that CCS 2.21 RTDX is not fully compatible with CCS 2.4/3.x, RTDX and may fail to send/receive data.
  2. CCS 2.4/3.x drivers are NOT backward compatible to CCS 2.x drivers.  When a CCS 2.4x/3.x driver is used under CCS 2.2x the emulation connection will fail to connect by default.
  3. If you are using the XDS510USB emulator and move back and forth between CCS 2.x and CCS 2.4/3.x then you should unplug and replug the USB cable between CCS sessions.  This will maintain the necessary relationship between a CCS 2.x and CCS 2.4/3.x-driver stack.  You must also select the correct SdConfig for the current CCS focus.  That is select ”SdConfig OMAP v2.40” if using CCS 2.40.  SdConfig will automatically load emulation drivers if they are not already loaded to the XDS510USB so you must select the SdConfig for the CCS you are targeting.
  4. If you intend on having a dual CCS 2.4/3.x and CCS 2.2x side by side install then read the instructions in the file _CCSV22_DoAutoConnect.  This file is located in your < CCS_INSTALLDIR >\drivers directory.  This provides details on how you can install/copy CCS 2.4x drivers into a CCS 2.21 environment.
