3.4.4. System configuration tool


SysConfig is a configuration tool designed to simplify hardware and software configuration challenges to accelerate software development.

SysConfig is available as part of the Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment as well as a standalone application. Additionally SysConfig can be run in the cloud by visiting the TI developer zone .

SysConfig provides an intuitive graphical user interface for configuring pins, peripherals, radios, software stacks, RTOS, clock tree and other components.

SysConfig will automatically detect, expose and resolve conflicts to speed software development.


The features available vary by the device and software development kit used.

  • Pin mux

  • Peripheral/driver configuration

  • Software stack configuration

  • Clock tree configuration

  • Memory configuration

  • RTOS configuration

  • Automatic code generation

  • Device- and board-level views

  • Contextual documentation

  • Real-time code preview


NOTE: Although these utilities are tested and intended to be accurate, they are provided ‘as is’ and are not guaranteed to provide accurate results. In the event of a conflict between the device data contained in this software tool and the device datasheet, the datasheet shall take precedence. Please check configuration results against the datasheet for your device to be assured your sysconfig tool is possible and accurate. It is up to the user to verify all of the bits in the registers based on the information in the device datasheet and that all IOSETs selected by the tool are valid and supported. Although we try to maintain backwards compatibility between Sysconfig Tool versions it isn’t guarunteed.

Software User’s Guide

A quick overview of the TI Sysconfig Tool and usage is available on the main Sysconfig Tool.


Please refer for latest sysconfig tool Sysconfig Release.

Application Launch

At launch the tool will present the option to start a new design or to open an existing design. To start a new design use the drop-down menu indicating which devices are supported by this installation of the Sysconf Tool. Select your device and click Start. Previously saved designs can be opened too. Although we try to maintain backwards compatibility between Sysconf Tool versions, it isn’t guaranteed.

Output File Formats

Code files generated by the Sysconfig tool vary by each device and its requirements. For Linux generally include a partial devicetree format is generated for Processor SDK Linux and that should be manually patched into the reference devicetree file included with the Linux kernel.

Some devices will have a generic format that is intended for use with U-Boot. These devices require pin multiplexing to be done once, in isolation, and while executing from SRAM.

Processor SDK Linux

Recompiling u-boot is required after making updates. Instructions are available in the Linux_Core_U-Boot_User’s_Guide. Compiling the devicetree dts to dtb is also required after making updates. Instructions are available in the Linux Kernel Users Guide.
