This is an "as is" document meant for Linux newbies (like myself) who are more comfortable with Code Composer.

Presentation and Support Files

3rd Version now updated for Community Linux (DaVinci_PSP_03.20.00.14), Code Composer V4/V5 on DA830/OMAP-L137/AM1808 EVM's.

The 3 .pdf's (split for filesize)

And 2 .zip's with images (split for filesize)

was mostly done on an OMAP-L137/TMS320C6747 Floating Point Starter Kit. I have now evolved to using VMWare Linux images over native WinXP. Archived much of the Montavista information for continuity. Much of the DevRocket functionality can be done with CCSv4/v5.

It has a bit more work with EASY boot.

Hopefully it helps you!

NOTE: ramdisk-base.gz is too large to post (3 Mbyte) in one file.

So you can download the following 3 files into a directory:

Rename to ramdisk-base.gz.z01 and rename to ramdisk-base.gz.z02

Unzip (and WinZip should find the .z01 and .z02 files to give you a single 3 MByte ramdisk-base.gz.txt file)

Rename ramdisk-base.gz.txt to ramdisk-base.gz

Or you can extract from DaVinci-PSP-SDK- in as documented at:

ramdisk-base.gz is at: \OMAP-L138_PSP_1_00_00_04\LSP\OMAP_L138_arm_1_00_00_04\DaVinci-PSP-SDK-\images\fs

2nd Version used an OMAP-L137/TMS320C6747 Floating Point Starter Kit using LSP and MontaVista Pro Version 5.0.

The 2 .pdf's (split for filesize)



It has a bit more work with DSPLINK. The DevRocket is not necessary but convenient.

Original version was done for using DVEVM/DVSDK and MontaVista Pro Version 4.0.1

Again the 2 .pdf's were split for filesize:



It has a bit more work with Codec Engine.
