Editor's Note: Popular File 2018

This support package is currently unable to download third-party software for MATLAB R2016b and earlier versions. For details and workaround, see this Bug Report.

MATLAB R2017a and later versions are unaffected.

Embedded Coder® Support Package for Texas Instruments™ C2000™ Processors enables you to generate a real-time executable and download it to your TI development board. Embedded Coder automatically generates C code and inserts the I/O device drivers in your block diagram. These device drivers are inserted in the generated C code.

This support package is functional for R2013b and beyond.

@stonefjd I have the same problem. This bug apparently is fixed in versión 16.1.3.

stonefjd

Recently,control suit change its name as C2000ware, and its folder structure has been changed.So,when I setting Control suit installation folder.It shows a hardware setup error:the folder...is not a texas instruments controlSUITE parent directory.
How can I fix this problem?

@Jin-seok,

MathWorks is investigating at this point.

Hi Venkatesh.
I had tried to use 'long double' data type following the tip which you commented before(15 Sep 2017). But in my case, it shows some errors during the building process as follows:

@ Harsh S Suresh,

You may want to try by specifying the path to CCS as “C:\ti\ccs901\ccs” and see if the setup get's through.
This problem occurs due to the way TI has re-arranged it's folders starting from CCSV9.

Antonin

@Harsh S Suresh
The folder structure has slightly changed with CCSv9, try passing the following folder when prompted:
C:\ti\ccs901\ccs
instead of C:\ti\ccs901
That should fix the problem.

Addon: Embedded Coder Support Package for Texas Instruments C2000 F28M3x Concerto Processor verson 18.2.2
Error while Hardware setup: the "gear" icon process. "Validate Code Composer Studio Installation" is failing with the following warning dialog
Error Dialog: "The folder, C:\ti\ccs901, is not a TI CCS Parent directory. Specify a folder that contains TI Code Composer Studio installation or code deployment target is not available."
But CCS is installed in this folder.
I tried uninstalling CCS and installing the latest version. But happens again. The version currently installed is CCS 9.0.1- selected every board support while installing.
Please help me fix this issue.

Alexander

When will delta sigma support be available?

Latest version of Code Composer Studio (Version 9.0.1) is supported with this support package. CCS version 9.0.0 is not supported due to the issue mentioned in this thread: http://e2e.ti.com/support/tools/ccs/f/81/t/793870?CCS-dss-bat-not-working-with-CCSv9-0-0. Upgrade your CCS version if you are using v9.0.0.

Ethan.Xu

Thanks.
Error "Path must start with relative path to anchor" occurred when involving a model reference, so I have to change it to a subsystem.

Thank you @Antonin for this work and we appreciate this much. however, i would like to highlight that most of our colleagues in this field have problem in the setup process and installing the pack or problem in the compiler. i hereby advice you to put the effort on the installation part that is the most crucial part in this process. thank you, regards

Delong

@Antonin @Aditya Padmanabha Thank you for suggesting the solution, it does work with come special configurations. I tried the method at first, but it seemed useless. The problem was solved when I changed the referenced model configuration of Code replacement library from "TI C28x with C99 extensions" to "TI C28x" with the provided solution. With "TI C28x" configuration in the referenced model, I found the generated project code could be compiled successfully even with "Software environment" set to "Shared location". I guess that the error("Path must start with relative path to anchor (Component: Simulink | Category: Block diagram error)") in the code compiling stage may be related to the setting of "Code replacement library".

Hi
I am currently using Matlab R2017a because of compatibility issues with an other Program.
My problem is that i am unable to install this support package.
After clicking the download button in the Add-On Explorer, a blank window appears and nothing happens.
The same story with the download via the internet explorer.
Is there an other way i can install this package?
Thanks in advance,

checkEnvSetup function is showing as undefined function in matlab2019a trial version..
fo ex
checkEnvSetup ( ' ccs ' , ' F280049 ' , ' check ')
undefined function or variable 'checkEnvSetup'

i need to interface my picollo F280049C Launch pad with matlab.. .is there any other function to check the ccs version and list in matlab command window?

Antonin

@Delong: We have seen similar problems in R2019a with the error you are reporting: "Path must start with relative path to anchor".
While this is being investigated here is a workaround that may help you resolve the problem:
Go to the configuration parameters of the model under Code Generation --> Interface --> Software environment and select "Auto" for Shared code placement instead of "Shared location". Do this for all referenced models, this should avoid the error for now.
I hope it helps,
Thanks,
Antonin.

Antonin

FYI, as of today, this support package doesn't work with CCSv9, we are investigating how to add support for this new version of the TI IDE.

R2019a is out!
Here are the new features available in R2019a:
- External Memory Interface (EMIF) Support for F2807x/F2737xS/F2837xD Processors
- Example: Photovoltaic Inverter with MPPT Using Solar Explorer Kit
- Support package tested for TI Code Composer Studio v8.2, TI C2000Ware 1.00.06.00 and TI CGT 16.9.9

@Armin Siemiatkowski: On your R2016a MATLAB window, go to Add-Ons tab, Select Manage Add-Ons, Browse for the TI C2000 support package, and Install the support package from there. It will install the latest version 16.1.5.

@wt y: Yes TMS320C2812 is supported

@S. K.: After you install the support package, you have to configure the support package. You can go to Matlab, Add-Ons, Manage Add-Ons, which will list the installed Add-Ons. For the right side of Embedded coder support package of TI C2000 in the Add-On list click the Gear icon for setup. Then it will work!

@linda xie: You can download the support package in a separate machine with Internet and install that offline in different machine without internet connection.

@Delong: please contact tech support with the model which you are facing issue:

I am running R2018b and have the Embedded Coder Support Package for Texas Instruments C2000 Processors installed. When trying to generate code for my model I still get this error: CRL: "TI C28x" cannot be found in the registry.
Any suggestions what could be going wrong?

HI, I can‘t connect internet ,how can I download this package?

wt y

hi,can this Package support TMS320 2812?

Delong

More powerful now!

I encountered a Model Reference problem when triing this Support Package using MATLAB R2019a to develop a TI Piccolo F28069M application. If a referenced model introduced, then an error arose saying "Path must start with relative path to anchor (Component: Simulink | Category: Block diagram error)" during the Code Generation process. Without Model Reference implementations, the model could be built and compiled successfully. I wonder how to solve the problem since I prefer Model Reference in the development.
Thanks!

Hello,
is there any way to enforce installing version 16.1.5 on MATLAB R2016a? Doing it the usual way always ends up with 16.2.10, which has compatibility issues.

Best regards and many thanks in advance!

Hi,

I m using experimenter lanchpad TMS320F28027F and I m using MATLAB/Simulink 2018 for the software. The matlab generates .out file and I can debug this .out file using CCSv8. How can I flash this .out file so i can uses it with Instaspin FOC(MotorWare)

Where can I generate flash based simulink code? What are settings in configuration parameters? What should be the system target file to generate flash based code?

Mouhanned BRAHIM

does this package support TEXAS INSTRUMENT TMS320F2812 ?

Hi Pierre-Alexandre,
For the record, we will fix the problem in an update that we will push to R2017b and R2018a, someone will post a quick message when the fix is out. Later MATLAB releases (beyond R2018a) won't show this problem.
Thanks a lot for reporting this issue.
Antonin.

Bonjour Pierre-Alexandre,
We'll take a look at the issue you mentioned and get back to you soon.
Give us a couple of days.
Thanks,

Hello,

i detected a bug with the block ePWM for F28004x autocoding i dont know where to report it.
i am doing variable frequency with HRPWM period. i specify timer period via input port but init value is always defined in the mask, here 1000. the problem is that this init value is used instead of the input port value for TBPRDHR calculation.
i modified generated code as follow and it seems to work. i checked with a scope.

generated code (original):
extern int MEP_ScaleFactor;
real_T TBPRDf = test_ti_1_B.Divide;
TBPRDf -= 10000;
TBPRDf *= 65536;
EPwm1Regs.TBPRDHR = (uint16_T)TBPRDf;

generated code (modified manually):
extern int MEP_ScaleFactor;
real_T TBPRDf = test_ti_1_B.Divide;
TBPRDf -= (uint16_T)(test_ti_1_B.Divide);
TBPRDf *= 65536;
EPwm1Regs.TBPRDHR = (uint16_T)TBPRDf;

for information test_ti_1_B.Divide = 100Mhz/(2*fpwm) % (up/down counting mode)
with fpwm changing with a slew rate 10Hz/s

Hi Mouhanned,
Please refer example model c28069pmsmfocdual_ert.slx in which the motor speed input is received via serial port on target and the same is sent from host via the model c2000_host_read.slx. This is one of the approach along with running your model in external mode in which you can do parameter tuning and signal logging.

Hi Antonin
please clear me external mode run steps with using xds100 v2 .

in external mode running, we donot use ccs software??

regards

Antonin

Hi Reza,

Like Venkatesh described below, you can't use the SCI-A block with External mode as it creates a conflict. Either use External mode via SCI-A or use the serial block via SCI-A but not both at the same time.
The best way to start is to run the example:
https://in.mathworks.com/help/supportpkg/texasinstrumentsc2000/examples/parameter-tuning-and-signal-logging-with-serial-external-mode.html
You may also be interested in logging data via a 2-model approach where the target sends data via the serial block and the host receives it in a different Simulink model.
I demonstrate this technique on this page:
https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/61420-dc-dc-buck-converter-example
It's more manual and less integrated than External mode but provides faster throughput.
I hope it helps,
Antonin.

hi dear Antonin
comment is very helpful and i acknowledgment from you. but if possible please help more and clear my uncertainties.
i use SCI-A block and set GOP number in my TMS28335 board and select serial mode in configuration parameter but when running program in external mode show some error. do you think i must use boot form flash and after running external mode? please help me because i need necessary in my manufacture projects. regards

Antonin

Hi Reza,

Yes, you can run External mode simulations on F28335 with CCSv6.
External mode needs a serial connection with the board. CCS is only used for automatic download, not for communications.
Most evaluation boards (docking stations, LaunchPads, ISO controlCards) now come with a serial over USB connection that goes through the same USB cable as your JTAG, so no extra cable is necessary.
Here is a page that can help you setup your serial connection with the board:
https://www.mathworks.com/help/supportpkg/texasinstrumentsc2000/ug/set-up-the-hardware-target.html
I hope it helps,

hi dears

1-can we using tms28335 with xds100 v2 and ccs6 software in external mode?
2-what is the ccs software influence in external mode operation ?

Hi Yanis,

The CCS project creation feature was introduced in R2017a. This will allow you to see the generated code as a project in CCS, put breakpoints, make edits, recompile, etc. The CCS version used is the one you have specified during the installation of the support package.

For R2016b release, you can load the generated .out in CCS externally and run it on hardware. You can also open the generated .c files in CCS and put breakpoints on the c file. But any changes and recompilation has to be done through the Simulink model only.

Regards,
Aditya

Hi Reza,

External mode makes use of SCI_A module for its functionality, hence using SCI block configured for this module 'SCI_A' will create conflict. Please start with our example model around external mode.

Hi Jirada,

Ardunio boards - Mega 2560, Mega ADK, Uno, Nano 3.0, Micro and Leonardo uses 5V supply. Ensure that you use proper voltage level shift between Arduino and C2000 SPI pins for proper working of SPI. Arduino boards - Due and MKR 1000 uses 3.3V supply. You can connect them directly to C2000 boards and get the SPI running.

so i think a good solution would be during the interruption which change the multiport to clear the tx fifo

hi,
thanks for your answer the problem is that i want to send first 16 uint16 and after to send others 16 uint16 but which are different. But on matlab when i change the mux which provide data for the spi transmit block it still one uint16 in the fifo which came from the old mux.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-v1NkxaI6UHZrhb6lD9Zf8Ca67j87KRW
As you can see on the picture i want to send 16 single (32 uint16) the problem is that i receive the first 16 uint16 but after switching the multiport it still the first uint16 of the first vector in the fifo so i reveive the first element of the first vector before the second vector

thanks in advance,
Vincent

Hi Jirada,

You need to ensure the SPI clock mode match properly between Arduino Nano and F28335. For example, if you select Mode 1 in Arduino Nano, you need to select options Rising edge, No delay in F28335 and if you select Mode 2 in Arduino Nano, you need to select options Falling edge, delay half cycle for F28335 to get the same SPI clock mode.
Also ensure the Master and Slave is synchronized properly as discussed in https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/c2000/f/171/t/545531?c2000-as-spi-slave-message-synchronization. You can make use of SPI receive interrupt in F28335 to read the data.

I hope it helps,
Aditya

Hi Vincent,

For the Transmit FIFO will be automatically cleared when the data is shifted out through the MOSI pin and you can clear the receive FIFO by reading the data using SPI Receive block.

Aditya

hi,
if it's not possible can i just desable fifo tx ?

Hi,

I am using SPI in slave mode for receiving data from arduino nano. However, when I tried running the program in external mode; the receiving status of SPI receive block shows the error right after.
(Error 2: about time out) and I cannot receive the data sent from arduino.

I'm using only the SPI receive block for f28335.

Any helps for me? Thank you so much

Hi Fares,

Make sure to use the latest update of the support package (in the MATLAB main window go to Add-Ons --> Check for Updates --> Hardware Support Packages) as we made recent changes to the SPI module.
1. The latest support package updates will provide you the option to select the required data bit selection for Receive block in slave mode.
2. The SPI Transmit and SPI Receive block should be used together. In Master mode Transmit should happen first and then Receive.
When you use Custom CS, the Transmit block selects the slave and then transmits the data using FIFO. The Receive block receives the data through FIFO and deselects the slave. You should use blocking mode or use SPI interrupts when you are using custom GPIO to ensure the GPIO deselect happens properly after data is received.
3. SPI Master transfer block is designed to perform both Transmit and Receive data together in Master mode only. If you want to transfer multiple data in a sequence without delay, the best way is to write data using SPI Transmit block instead of SPI Master transfer block.

I hope it helps,
Aditya

Fares

Hi Friends,

I have three problems:
1. SPI Receive block (slave mode): How can I define the data bit of each signal ?!
2. SPI Transmit block (mastermode): The CS is falling down when starting transmit the data and don't rises up again. This issue prevents me to use this block to transmit data to number of slaves using one SPI module.
3. SPI Master Transfer block (master mode): I want to transmit signal that divided to three words. There is an overhead delay between each word. How can I reduce this delay ?
Many thanks

Hi everyone,

I'm working on the DSP delfino F28379d. On the Simulink interface, I want to modify the pin assignement of a PWM output under certain conditions. I see that the PWM pin assignments can be setted trought the configuration parameters tab.

However, is it possible to modify this assignment directly on the Simulink model to perform it in real time mode for example?

Many thanks

Hi reza,

Please refer this link:
http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Using_the_serial_adapter_of_XDS100
In TI XDS100v2 the PORTB of the FTDI chip is used for UART and COM port corresponding to this port must be configured in Simulink Hardware config pane under external mode entry. Ensure the GPIO pins over which the SCI_A module connects to FTDI chip are properly configured Hardware config pane under SCI_A entry.

Antonin

Salut Vincent,
Put 7 as the data length in the SPI receive block and implement the logic in Simulink to reconstruct the message of 28 once you hit the interrupt 4 times. I know you can do this, I'm sure the 28 words have different signals value, you can reconstruct the different signals at that level. Use counters, enabled subsystems, the selector block, the arithmetic shift block, data store block and the Memory Copy block.
Good luck!
Antonin.

hi
with xds100 v2 , can we receive analog signal in external mode in 28335?

1.
While using c2000 embedded coder toolbox, I successfully generate and download C-code to the TMDSCNCD28335 control card using JTAG connector (XDS100 v3). The problem is that Simulink cannot generate a project, and therefore I cannot open it in CCS for debugging and signal logging / plotting.

I have even uninstalled CCS v8 and installed v7 which should be supported ( http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MatLab_and_CCS ) . Either way, I get the following error message in Simulink.

"Unsupported CCS Version. Skipping CCS Project creation"

What should I do to make Simulink (2018a) generate a CCS project?
Install an even earlier CCS version?

2.
Signal logging does not work in Simulink, not even when using the example project. I've tried all COM ports and followed your guide. External mode should work with the XDS100 v3 right?

Any help is appreciated.
(I've been in contact with TI, and they refer to you)

and an other thing how can i regroup all package after ?

Antonin,
I configurated the rx fifo interruption with 7. I am programming for a F28379D so i put inside of the interrupt service routine CPU 6 and PIE 9 for the spi c rx interrupt. But now i don't know what i have to put inside of the spi receive block ? 28 or 7?
thanks,
Vincent

thanks a lot Antonin. I will try it

Antonin

Hi Vincent, the SPI hardware FIFO can only hold 16 words on high end devices (F2806x/07x/37x, etc.). Our blocks allows you to specify a higher data length as you can react on the SPI interrupt and read more than 16, but you have to be actively reading while the data is coming as the hardware will not be able to hold more than 16 words.
Make sure to use the latest update of the support package (in the MATLAB main window go to Add-Ons --> Check for Updates --> Hardware Support Packages) as we made recent changes to the SPI module.
Another way to read 28 would be to set an interrupt when the FIFO is filled with 7 words and read 7 at a time in the interrupt service routine. You can then reconstruct the full message after 4 reads, that would be a robust solution.
I hope it helps,
Antonin.

i am using the spi receiver i want to receive 28 uint16 but the value of status when data are received go to 3

Antonin

Yes Reza, just connect a Scope to the output of an ADC block

hi

can we show analog signal with external mode?

Antonin

Hi Watcharin,

Follow the steps in the Editor's note on top of this page and let us know if this fixes your problem.
Thanks,
Antonin.

Hi Arun,

This warning is appearing because you are using a newer version of the codegen tools for your project build but the library IQmath_fpu32.lib is likely built with an older version. You may ignore the warning for now.

HTH,

I use R2018a.
I can't install this support package.

Hi Prashant,

1) Please ensure the GPIO pins are selected properly in the HW config pane that corresponds to board SCI-A module.
2) You may also first consider doing normal SCI Rx and Tx with host PC using a tool like putty.
3) Also, please ensure the board settings - DIP switch, Jumper settings are set such that Rx and Tx lines to FTDI chip are routed.
4) Also ensure "Inf" as the simulation time to run External mode infinitely.

I hope it helps.

Hi, I tried running External Mode for a system but i got the following error,

Error occurred while executing External Mode MEX-file 'ext_comm':
Failed to connect to the target. A time-out occurred while waiting for the connection response from the target. Possible reasons for the time-out:
a) The target is not switched on.
b) The target is not connected to your host machine.
c) The application for the model is not running on the target. You might have clicked the Stop button. If the Run button is not dimmed, click it. Otherwise, click the Build button, which downloads and runs your application on the target.
Component:Simulink | Category:Block diagram error
Unable to connect to the 'TI Delfino F2837xD' target for ....

I believe i am able to establish connection between Computer and target (as i can deploy the LED blinking code, or any other code and its working), but when i try to run External Mode to check the signals on scope, i got the above mentioned error.

Any guidance will be really helpful....

Hi Antonin,
Thanks for your prompt response. It helped and now it's okay, the thirdy software ostermiler circular buffer was not installed.

Antonin

Hi Yanis,

While running External mode, we honor the simulation time specified in your model and the model stops when it is reached.
By default the simulation time is set to 10 seconds. Just put "Inf" as the simulation time to run External mode infinitely. In R2018a we automatically update the simulation time to "Inf" when you select a TI C2000 target.
For your path error, I would suggest cleaning up old installations of the support package and going through a clean installation.

I hope it helps.

Hi,
By using external mode to perform real time execution, I'm able to deploy the model to hardware ans it works... but only for 10 secondes.
I obtain this error message:
The path 'C:\ProgramData\Matlab\SupportPackages\R2016b\3P.instrset\ostermillercircularbuffer.instrset\ostermillerutils-1.08.02' does not exist

Where does this error come from and how can I solve it?

Thanks

Antonin

Hi Prashant,

In the diagnostic viewer (blue "View Diagnostics" link that appears at the bottom of the model after you generate code), you should see a "Code Composer Studio Project" section with a link labelled "Open project in Code Composer Studio" at the beginning of the code generation diagnostic messages.
This will allow you to see the generated code as a project in CCS, put breakpoints, make edits, recompile, etc.
This feature was introduced in R2017a, the CCS version used is the one you have specified during the installation of the support package. Keep in mind that if you recompile the project in CCS, the executable generated by CCS will not overwrite our generated executable and will be in a different folder inside the code generation directory (i.e. CCS_Debug)
If this works for you, don't feel obligated to rate us 5 stars, but keep in mind that it would help us put more features like that in the future and that we would greatly appreciate it ;-)

I hope it helps,

Antonin.

I want to link CCSv6 with MATLAB 2017b, please help me with the same?

Antonin

Hi Aakarshan,

I'm copying the comment I posted on Jan 25th to answer your question:
The target audience for this support package mostly contains professional engineers among which the usage of Mac is close to 0. Our systems requirement page shows you the supported platform for the different support packages:
https://www.mathworks.com/hardware-support/system-requirements.html
We may consider adding Mac support in the future, but there is no immediate solution at this point.
I would encourage you to try our Arduino support package which offers Mac support.
I hope it helps,
Antonin.

Why is this not getting installed on my system? It gives error "The support package is not compatible with your version of MATLAB or operating system". I am using MATLAB 2017b-Academic Use on Mac OS X High Sierra. please let me know whats the problem.

Hi Saner,

Go to https://www.mathworks.com/support/contact_us.html
and create a service request for us to assist you further.
We may need few artifacts from you and may have to host WebEx meeting for further debugging.
Contacting us through a service request will speed up the things.

Hi Venkatesh,Antonin,Sumith
I am grateful for the kind solutions presented.
I 've followed your instructions. however it doesn't work asfor my problem.

I have described the whole procedure that I configure the CCS and matlab in the following link:
https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/35312633

could you kindly help me check out which step is wrong?

best regards

Hi Saner,

After you have run the Model Advisor, please ensure the target is F28335 once in the hardware configuration pane.

HTH,

Antonin

R2016b users, it appears that one third party tool (Ostermiller circular buffer) is now redirecting to a secured server that uses a certificate that the default R2016b MATLAB installation doesn't have.
This leads to installation errors where you see a pop-up advising you to call technical support.
The following bug report, related to the same problem affecting MinGW provides a way to fix this problem.
https://www.mathworks.com/support/bugreports/1507667
This only affects R2016b, the certificate is part of R2017a and later releases.
I hope it helps,
Antonin.

saner chen

HI Sumith,
I've followed your instructions, whereas it still comes out error informations which i think should't be an error:

Error: File: C:\ProgramData\MATLAB\SupportPackages\R2017a\toolbox\target\supportpackages\tic2000\tlc_c\tic2000_compatibility.tlc Line: 42 Column: 25
The left-hand side of a . operator must be a valid scope identifier

actually, my final purpose is to use simulink to generated a CCS project which can then be modified in CCS, and then downloaded to hardware board f28335 through CCS.
do you have any suggestions about the version of matlab and CCS?

Hi Saner,
You can download version 6.4.6 of the code generation tools on the following page:
http://software-dl.ti.com/codegen/non-esd/downloads/download.htm#C2000

In R2017a, support for idelink_ert has been deprecated. You should upgrade your model to ert.tlc workflow as mentioned in the error message you got. You should open Upgrade Advisor (Analysis->Model Advisor->Upgrade Advisor) and run the check "Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file" as mentioned in the error message. This will work for idelink_grt.tlc model as well. When you open idelink models you will get a warning with this message.
Hope this helps, let us know.
Thanks.

Hi Luca,
Looks like you are trying to generate code in the path 'C:\Windows\System32\'. This is a Windows system folder which may not give full access to create all the files and it looks like the make file is not created. Can you try code generation at some other non windows system specific path?

Hi,which type of BLDC motor you are using

Hi,

I'm getting started with a LaunchXL-F28379D . It's the first time I use a Hardware Support Package.

I can't do such a simple task as reading an analog value from an input. I can toggle the Blue and Red LEDs on the board and I'm pretty sure the hardware configuration is OK, as I can download models without any problem. I've opened the c2807x_2837xx_adcpwmasynctest_ert.slx example, but I always get a value of 0 on the ADC output, although I know that the voltage on that pin is higher (I change it in the range of 0.8 V - 2.5 V).

I've tried creating a new model using only the ADC module and watching the output with a Simulink scope, changing the SOC trigger to software, also using the XINT2 interrupt and generating this interrupt with a GPIO pint and the SW Interrupt Trigger + Hardware Interrupt... but it has been completely unsuccessful.

I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this, but I don't know where to ask.

Thanks.

Please ensure you have a 'DB9 Male to DB9 Female 9C Serial Straight Thru Cable' for serial connection in case of F28335 eZdsp board.

Please note: For F28335 eZdsp board, the USB emulation does not support serial operation, but only JTAG. Hence, along with USB that is used to download the program, user also needs to connect a serial cable from the DB9 connector(SCI-A) on the board to the PC COM port to run the external mode. The PC COM port# is COM1.

I could run the external mode on this board by doing this connection. The default settings for SW2 switch were in place.

Please ensure the GPIO pins are selected properly in the HW config pane that corresponds to board SCI-A module. You may also first consider doing normal SCI Rx and Tx with host PC using a tool like putty. Also, please ensure the board settings - DIP switch, Jumper settings are set such that Rx and Tx lines to FTDI chip are routed.

Hi Wannadear,

From the error message we suspect that you have space in the path of an artifact which DSS is try to fetch. The error "Couldn't open file "E:\Program" points to this.
So, could you please try to use the command RTW.transformPaths('PATH') and provide the full path for the artifact that DSS is looking in the above command by replacing PATH and see if the resulting string comes out with a space or not. If it does, then possibly, you can try to put that artifact in C:\ in your PC and see if it works.
We think this artifact as .ccxml file and the same is provided to DSS via our hardware configuration pane - Build options.
Also, do let us know if you want to get away from the warnings you are seeing and we can help.

Hi all,

In R2017b, we added an automatic download of the TI compiler to make the installation easier.
Unfortunately, incompatibilities with server configurations created multiple cases where the support package installation would fail with the following message:
"Failed to download the third-party software: TI C2000 Code Generation Tools"
This issue is resolved now, sorry for the inconvenience.
That should address a few problems reported below.

Hi Oscar,

The example you are referring to was first released as a file exchange entry based on R2016b.
You can download it using this page:
https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/61420-dc-dc-buck-converter-example
It contains a video that goes through the technical details. I encourage you to watch it, it will help you understand the different parts of the models (skip to 5m30s on the video to get to the technical details).
I hope it helps, thanks for the high rating!
Good luck,

Antonin.

Hi Antonin,
I am using Matlab 2016b and Embedded Coder® Support Package for Texas Instruments™ C2000™ Processors to program a TI F28337S Launchpad. I noted that some examples highlighted in the Mathworks webpage are not available for me (for instance this one: https://www.mathworks.com/help/supportpkg/texasinstrumentsc2000/examples/dc-dc-buck-converter.html). I suppose that probably I need to upgrade to 2017 Matlab version in order to have available these resources, however this could take a while in my company. It is possible to obtain the .slx files of these models without upgrade to Matlab 2017?

Only the models whose system target file is set to idelink_ert.tlc, idelink_grt.tlc, or realtime.tlc and whose board matches one of the supported hardware boards can be updated. If the model can be updated, the model parameters will be converted to support use of ert.tlc system target file.

Hi Akshay,

You are opening a Simulink model that has been saved with an earlier version of MATLAB. Just follow the instructions that are provided to you (i.e. Open the Upgrade Advisor and run the check "Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file to upgrade the model to the supported workflow).
Once you complete the step and save the model, you won't see this message again.

I hope it helps,

Antonin.

I am using MATLAB 2017a and getting the following error when I try to build a Simulink model with CCSv5:
he build process will terminate as a result.
Caused by:
The model is configured to use a hardware board that has changed significantly since the release of MATLAB in which it was originally saved. Open the Upgrade Advisor and run the check "Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file" to upgrade the model to the supported workflow.

I would like to know the solution to this error.

Hi Gerhard,
Sad to see your 1-star rating, it would be good to provide feedback we can react to.
We have been seeing an increased number of download failures that has been identified by our network team as a problem with our web partner hosting third party content. They are actively working on resolving the problem. The only work around I have for now is to retry the installation as it seems like the problem is sporadic.

Hi all,
Would you let me know about my stupid question,
how can I send a word by SCI from embedded coder? my device is experimenter 28335 and the receiver is the computer. for number I don't have any problem for communication, just I need to send a word by serial interface, but I need to use embedded coder for programming NOT CCS.

Hi Song-Hong,

You need the Embedded Coder product (https://www.mathworks.com/products/embedded-coder.html) to be able to install this support package. Unfortunately, Embedded Coder is not available on the student license. Check with your school to get access to Embedded Coder.
Alternatively, you can use Arduino, Raspberry PI, Lego with Simulink and micro:bit, Nucleo, K64F with a Simulnk Coder license that is available as an add-on for the student license.
Here are the list of products available for the student license:
https://www.mathworks.com/store/link/products/student/new
I hope it helps,
Thanks,

Antonin.

I use student license to install this Embedded coder for MATLAB 2017a version, but a message appears in the beginning after I click install button.
The content is about "There was a problem downloading the support package".
I try to handle it by MATLAB Answer webpage offers method, but it effected nothing.
Would you tell me how to haddle it?

I deploy the model to hardware but the LD2 red light doesn' t on after the building proccess ends

Hi,
In TI C2000 double is supported as “long double” which will affect the execution performance badly if not used judiciously. So use of double is not recommended unless it is really required. We have a workaround if one may need so. You can use the data type replacement feature under code generation tab. The replacement name for double can be provided as "float64". This "float64" is alias for long double which is already typecast in the device header included in codegen.
Then do the following at MATLAB command window.
>> float64 = Simulink.AliasType;
>> float64.HeaderFile = 'F2806x_Device.h'; // you can specify your choice of device specific file here...
>> float64.BaseType = 'double'
In the generated code all double variables in Simulink will now represent long double in generated code which is 64bit float. The alias name float64 is what is visible in generated code.
You may also consider working with fixed point and see if that helps.

I have a problem when I convert simulink to single data format or when I run my simulink model on lunckxl-f28377s. As we know, This DSP has 32 bit processor. Therefore my model including a feedback loop (phase locked loop) cause increasing numerical error when estimate parameters. It estimate frequency. In 64 bit version (double), it has not error but in 32 bit version it has error. How can i fix it?

Hi there,
I met a problem when I used the Simulink to generate CCS project for F28027P with external mode. Here are the errors associated with ext_svr_c2000.c:

"C:/ProgramData/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2017a/toolbox/target/supportpackages/tic2000/src/ext_svr_c2000.c", line 145: warning: incompatible redefinition of macro "assert" (declared at line 74 of "C:/ti/ccsv5/tools/compiler/C2000_~1.0/include/assert.h")

3 errors detected in the compilation of "C:/ProgramData/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2017a/toolbox/target/supportpackages/tic2000/src/ext_svr_c2000.c".

I would be very appreciated if you could help me to solve this problem. Thank you very much.

Best regards,
Jason

hello
I met a problem when I used the software to generate CCS project.
When my open my CCS6 to build the project,it told me that the profile_timer.c and code_profiling_utility_functions.c
are not linked well.
Then i found profile_timer.c in the root c/matlab/...........tic2000/src(not quite accurate)
and the code_profiling_utility_functions.c in the folder named instrumented.
I linked these two .c documents and went on succeeded.
Can you tell me what's wrong or how to fix the problem?
THX!

Very nice work.

Sorry, in my message below, only the 17a update is out today, you will have to wait a few more days for the 16b update. Thanks.

Antonin

@Julio Perez,

The April release of the support package, on both R2016b and R2017a should fix the problem you are describing. Let us know.

Antonin.

Too bad this is not supported for Mac/Linux users :(

I am tring sending data between the f28335 development kit and DAC9881 right now. the problem is that the spi blocks in this package only support 16bits data transfer, while DAC9881 only receive 24 bit(first 8bits unused) data. how do i solve it?

Antonin

R2017a is out!

Here are a few exciting features that you will find in this release:

* CCS project creation. You will find a link at the bottom of the diagnostic viewer, after you generate code, which opens a CCS project that you can debug, modify, rebuild, reload, etc.

* I2C and SPI blocks for F28x7x devices with examples including reading sensors from the BOOSTXL-SENSORS Booster Pack.

* Multitasking profiling, this first version of the tool doesn't support interrupts but allows you to measure synchronous task execution time and visualize preemptions.

This is obviously non-exhaustive and you will find plenty of other enhancements in addition to all the mainstream features that you will get with R2017a.

Enjoy!

Antonin.

Hi Julio,

We identified one problem that will affect the case that you are describing.
We are working on a fix that we will publish in the next release of the support package. We could give you a patch via Tech Support in the meantime, feel free to contact us.

Thanks,

Antonin.

Antonin

Hi Julio,

Could you please contact Tech Support so we can follow-up with you on this issue.

Thanks!

Julio Perez

I have been developing a decopling control for two motors using Simulink and TI Delfino F28377xS. After updating the support packages from version 16.2.3 to 16.2.5 (the latest) i'm cannot chose any more the setting "Default Parameter behavior " as Inlined and select some Parameters as Tunable using Batch Download. is there any way to get the support packages installation files for the version 16.2.3

Antonin

Hi Tim,

Go to help or type doc, go to Hardware Support, click on "Embedded Coder Support Package for Texas Instruments C2000 Processors", you will land on the main documentation page for the support package where you will find the link to the examples.

I hope it helps

Tim Endreß

Hi, I have installed the latest version but can't find the the examples in the libary browser anymore. Where can I get them?

Antonin

In 16b, we added drastic improvements to serial External mode. You can monitor one 32-bit signal @5kHz and we tested 20 32-bit signals @1kHz without data drops. This is close to 100x faster than previous versions. You can increase the baudrate of the serial over USB of your Launchpad or controlCard. On Launchpads and recent controlCards using FTDI 2232H, you can pick any baudrates below or equal to 6Mbps, or exactly 9 or 12Mbps. On old controlCards using FTDI 2232D, you can pick any baudrates below or equal to 1.5Mbps, or exactly 2 or 3Mbps. Increase your SCIA baudrate in the configuration parameters to take advantage of this enhanced feature.

F28x7x devices have now blocks for eQEP, eCAP and DAC in 16b.

The CLA is supported on all devices in 16b.

Enjoy!

Could not Log in beacause of not having account.Can you help me?

MathWorks and TI co-presented a webinar recently on Embedded Coder Support Package for C2000 and you can now view it here:

http://eletricidade-eletronica-telecom.blogspot.com/2015/04/live-event-let-ti-and-mathworks-help.html

The first half of the presentation is about c2000 hardware capabilities and applications from TI and overview of Model-Based Design by MathWorks. If you jump to the 25:55 second portion of the webinar, you can see a detailed demo of the C2000 support package.

Hi Paola,
We rely on peripheral header files shipped by TI. Historically we were shipping some of these files, we now rely on the installation of ControlSuite which is a more sustainable approach for the long term.
I understand that this is an extra burden on your side to download ControlSuite and point to the installation folder. You get the advantage of being able to use the latest version from TI that may fix bugs in earlier versions or adjust to silicon revision changes.
The files are needed to access peripherals like ADC, PWM, I2C, SPI, etc.
I hope this helps, let us know how we could make the experience better for you.
Thanks,
Antonin @ MathWorks

Paola

Hello?

Would be glad to know everything you Need to install it. Now you need to install also the TI Control Suite, right? Without it, I could not install it. Why is this needed? Is code generation per click already supported here, just as it was for CCS3? Thanks for your help!

Cheers

Hi Pang,

For R2013a and earlier, the TI C2000 Target is provided directly with your Embedded Coder installation and does not require a separate Support Package download. You can try the >>c2000lib command or search the help for more information.

Hi, I am using Matlab R2013a , I can't install it through targetinstaller via internet. Is the support package not valid for this version of Matlab?
