Thank you Rickta59 for the tip! Discuss this deal in the 43oh forum.
TI is having a promotional Code Composer Studio giveaway with the purchase of the G2 Launchpad for $9.99. It is a user download and the license type is node locked, which means that it can be run on a single registered machine.
Code Composer Studio(NL) normally retails for $495.00. The only other time CCS has been lower, when it was offered for free for attending an Arrow seminar, back in 2011.
CCS supports the following platforms:
- MSP Low Power MCUs
- C2000 Real-time MCUs
- SimpleLink Wireless MCUs
- TM4x MCUs
- TMS570 & RM4 Safety MCUs
- Sitara (Cortex A & ARM9) Processors
- Multicore DSP and ARM including KeyStone Processors
- F24x/C24x devices
- C3x/C4x DSPs
To order your Launchpad + CCS bundle, go to this link and add it to your cart. There is not much info on how the license will be delivered. The best thing to do is to buy it now and contact TI support later, if your license does not come through. Do not miss this deal!
Let us below know if you made a purchase.
I ordered it a week ago. You receive an email with your license information. In addition you will find a link to it under myRegistered software at ti.com. The license is node locked, but you can transfer it one time. Also, the offer is limited to two copies.
The promo is also available for the MSP432 Launchpad:
Bought it just for the license. I’ll probably node-lock it to a VM (either immediately or after a transfer), so that I never lose the license just because I upgraded my machine or want to code on my laptop.
It seems, that now the CCS (even the newest CCS 7) is free for all, but it drops the support for Stellaris MCU family.
