Open the documentation overview web page file in the SDK’s Doc folder for a full list of documentation.
This release updates to the newest code gen tools. See the Validation Information section for details on what versions of each code gen tools was used to test this release.
The graphics library grlib is now provided in this release. The display example showcases this library’s capabilities.
The open-source SPIFFS file system is now provided in this release. An example has been provided to showcase this file system’s capabilities. This file system requires a non-volatile storage (NVS) driver (which is not available on CC32xx devices).
FATFS has been updated to the latest release (v0.13a).
FreeRTOS has been updated to v10.0.0.

Upgrade and Compatibility Information
This release breaks compatibility with previous releases of the Core SDK in the following ways:
Due to the GCC compiler update, C files now require -std=c99 to be included on the compile line. GCC C++ files require -std=c++98 to be included on the compile line.
The board.c file for the MSP432E requires the NDK_NOUSERAPIS symbol to be defined before including the EMACMSP432E.h file. This is required to minimize the scope of the NDK header files.
The default TI-RTOS kernel configuration project now includes a reference to NDK_hookInit(), which is used to initialize task hooks. This function is provided by the NDK, but applications that do not use the NDK must provide an empty implementation of this function. A weak version of this function is provided in main_tirtos.c. See the product examples for reference.
- The SimpleLink SDK has moved to the R0.13a release of FatFs. Applications using FatFs will need to update code which invokes f_mkfs() as parameters to this function have changed.
The f_mkfs() function now requires the following to be provided:
- path - null-terminated string specifying logical driver to be formatted.
- opt - File system format (FM_FAT, FM_FAT32, FM_EXFAT, FM_ANY).
- au - cluster allocation unit size in bytes.
- work - work buffer used during format process.
- len - size of the work buffer provided.
The FatFS component has undergone a name and path change and requires a modification to the fatfs link resource path in your application from previous SDK releases.
See the SDK release notes for a description of which host operating systems are supported in this release.
See the SDK release notes for a description of which components and tools are required to work with this product.
See the SDK release notes for a list of TI devices that are supported in this product.
The Core SDK was validated with the following components:
- Code Composer Studio 8.0.0
- ARM 18.1.0.LTS
- GNU Code Generation Tools
- ARM GCC 7-2017-q4-major
- IAR Code Generation Tools
- ARM 8.20.2
- FreeRTOS 10.0.0
- XDCTools 3.50.05
|TIRTOS-476||POSIX threads render as single task in execution graph|
|TIDRIVERS-1267||MSP432E4 PWM driver always inserts one full period of ‘high’ before beginning duty cycle.|
This product’s version follows a version format, M.mm.pp.bb, where M is a single digit Major number, mm is 2 digit minor number, pp is a 2 digit patch number, and b is an unrestricted set of digits used as an incrementing build counter.
