You must perform three steps to begin using your evaluation module.
- Install Code Composer Studio
- Install Board Support Package
- Install Emulation Drivers
1. Install Code Composer Studio
Install Code Composer Studio in its default directory:
If you choose to install Code Composer Studio in a different directory, modify the the path names below to reflect the change. Code Composer studio is not included with the board but can be purchased separately. A 90-day trial version can be found at:
2. Install the Board Support Package
Run the Board Support Package installer at the root of the installation CD-ROM:
The installer will prompt you for an installation directory. Please respond with the location of your Code Composer Studio installation directory. For example, if Code Composer Studio is installed in c:\CCStudio, the Board Support Package should also be installed in c:\CCStudio.

3. Install Emulation Drivers (Spectrum Digital XDS510USB)
Run the emulation driver installer. It should be named something like SetupCCS6000_xxxx.EXE. You can find the latest emulation drivers at:
The installer will prompt you for an installation directory. Please respond with the location of your Code Composer Studio installation directory. For example, if Code Composer Studio is installed in c:\CCStudio, the driver should also be installed in c:\CCStudio.
Connect the emulator to your PC through a USB cable. When it is first plugged in, the red USB-ACTIVE light will light for about one second then turn off. Windows will pop up its "Add New Hardware" wizard. Select the Install from a specific location option. Now select "Search for the best driver" option and use the browse function to include specdig/xds510usb subdirectory of your Code Composer installation.
Test your emulator.
Connect the emulator to your target board through the 14-pin JTAG header and power your target. Launch the SDConfig utility from its blue desktop icon. The top left panel is an I/O port address selector with each emulator using a different I/O address based on its connection type and the number of emulators installed. The I/O port address for a single USB emulator is 0x510. Select 0x510 and use the Emulator --> Test option to check the connection all the way to the target. The emulator target scan chain length will be printed in the output window if successful (38 for a C55xx DSP). If you experience any problems, unplug the USB cable from the emulator, wait a few seconds and try again.
Configure Code Composer Studio. Launch Code Composer Setup from its desktop icon. Remove any currently configured boards in the "system Configuration" pane at the left and use the "Install Configuration File" option at in the rightmost pane. Using the filter selector, select:
Platform: XDS510USB Emulator
Configuration: DM642 EVM XDS510 USB Emulator (SD)
You may now launch Code Composer Studio.
