Installing TI C2000 Target Support Package

Using the Installer Executable (Windows only)

Double-click on the installer to start the setup of the TI C2000 Target Support Package. Choose the desired location to install the files and select the desired installation type to proceed with the setup.

Choosing Full Installation will download and install all the the necessary tools required to build and program the TI MCU directly from PLECS, including the auxiliary TI tools. Whereas, choosing Compact Installation will only install the tools required for core functionality; these include the TI C2000 Target Support Package and the PLECS RT Box Target Support Package. A separate installation of TI's Code Composer Studio (CCS) is then required to build the project and flash the target device with this installation type.

Manual Installation

  1. Please download the ZIP archive, extract it, and move the folder ti_c2000 to e.g. HOME/Documents/PLECS/CoderTargets.
  2. In PLECS, choose the entry Preferences... from the File menu (PLECS menu on Mac OS X) to open the PLECS Preferences dialog.
  3. On the Coder tab click on the Change button and select the folder HOME/Documents/PLECS/CoderTargets. The TI C2000 Target should now be listed under Installed targets.
  4. Next, select PLECS Documentation from the Help menu and navigate to the TI C2000 Target Support Online Help section for detailed instructions on how to get started with this target support package, including build and flash configuration settings and using the External Mode.
