System Requirements
The 6416 DSP Starter Kit (DSK) is an all-in-one evaluation
platform for the TMS320C6416T Digital Signal Processor
from Texas Instruments. It includes a target board that
can be used as a reference design for interfacing the DSP
to common devices such as SDRAM, Flash and a codec
as well as a special introductory version of TI's flagship
Code Composer Studio development tools. An on-board
JTAG emulator allows debug from Code Composer Studio
through your PC's USB port.

This kit contains everything you need to get started with TI
DSPs. It can also be used with the full version of Code
Composer Studio and an external JTAG emulator.

Install DSK Content from the CD-ROM
Connect the DSK to Your PC
Before you install the DSK software, please make sure
you are using Administrator privileges and any virus
checking software is turned off. The DSK board should
not be plugged in at this point.
Connect the supplied USB cable to your PC or laptop.
We recommend that anyone making hardware
modifications connect through a USB hub for safety.
If you plan to connect a microphone, speaker, or
expansion card these must be plugged in properly
before you connect power to the DSK board.
Connect the included 5V power adapter brick to your
AC power source using the AC power cord.
Apply power to the DSK by connecting the power
brick to the 5V input on the DSK.
When power is applied to the board the Power On
Self Test (POST) will run. LEDs 0-3 will flash. When
the POST is complete all LEDs blink on and off then
stay on. At this point your DSK is functional and you
can now finish the USB driver install.
Insert the Code Composer Studio installation CD into
the CD-ROM Drive. An install menu (see below)
should appear. If it does not, manually run
Launch.exe from the CD-ROM. Select the Install
Products option from the menu.

Hub, or port on
Install any components you need. To debug with the
DSK you must have 1) a copy of Code Composer
Studio, 2) the target content package for your board
and 3) a copy of the FlashBurn plug-in.
USB Cable
Users of the full Code Composer Studio package can
skip the DSK Code Composer installation and simply
install the target content packages.

Make sure your DSK CD-ROM is installed in your CDROM drive. Now connect the DSK to your PC using
the included USB. After few seconds Windows will
launch its "Add New Hardware Wizard" and prompt
for the location of the DSK drivers.
Follow the instructions on the screens and let
Windows find the USB driver files “sdusbemu.inf” and
“sdusbemu.sys” on the DSK CD-ROM. On XP
systems Windows will find the drivers automatically.

Testing Your Connection
Code Composer Registration
If you want to test your DSK and USB connection you can
launch the C6416 DSK Diagnostic Utility from the icon on
your desktop.
Remember to register your product within 30 days of
purchase. Texas Instruments may make available DSK
specific patches, utilities or promotions to registered DSK
users. You must register your DSK through the online web
registration form to enable access through the new
Internet enabled Update Advisor. You can register online
during installation if you are connected to the Internet. To
register online after installation or to register via fax or by
e-mail you can access the registration forms from within
Code Composer Studio TM IDE. From the menu bar
select Help å Register, select the appropriate registration
link for your product and follow the instructions on the
From the diagnostic utility, press the start button to run the
diagnostics. In approximately 30 seconds all the on-screen
test indicators should turn green.
Starting Code Composer
To start Code Composer Studio, double click the 6416
DSK CCStudio icon on your desktop.
You will need your Service Code to register the product.
The Service Code is a 16 digit number starting with the
letters CCS attached to the CD case.
Note: paid annual software subscription service is not
available for DSK products.

Running the DSK Tutorial
The on-line help included with the DSK contains in-depth
information about the hardware and software that comes
with the kit. It also contains a tutorial that will help you get
started with your DSK and learn about its features. To
access the on-line help and run the tutorial, follow these
Start Code Composer Studio (ignore this if CCS is
already running) by double-clicking on the C6416
DSK icon on your desktop.
Use the Debug --> Connect menu option to open a
debug connection to the DSK board.
Launch the DSK help file by opening the following file
using Windows Explorer.

Related Documentation
A complete list of related documentation is available in the
on-line help. The path to this documentation is (assuming
you choose c:\CCStudio as the default path)
Look in the section entitled “Welcome to Your
‘C6416 DSK”. You will find the tutorial and other
introductory material there. Note that older versions
of CCStudio use c:\ti as the default install path instead
of c:\CCStudio so you may have to adjust the path
names to match the actual location of files on your

Debug Hints and Trouble Shooting
Error Messages
If installing on Windows XP and your PC is connected
to the internet through a firewall the USB install may
take up to 15 minutes if you let it complete normally.
The work-around for this issue is to simply disconnect
your network cable during the USB hardware install.
Many of the error messages below refer to USB
enumeration issues. The following window will appear
when launching CCS or the Diagnostic Utility indicating
the enumeration status.
Make sure all of the Configuration Switches (SW3)
are set in the off position. This configures the DSK for
the factory default settings of little endian processor
mode booting out of the on-board Flash memory.
Some of the Help Files are links to Adobe Acrobat
PDF files. If you intend to access these files you must
have Adobe Acrobat installed on your system.
If you want to verify a successful USB driver install,
open your device manager by right clicking on the My
Computer icon on your desktop and selecting
Properties --> HW --> Device Manager. You should
see a new class “SD USB Based Debug Tools” and
one Spectrum Digital TMS320C6416 DSK installed.
The BUSY LED above the USB connector comes on
when power is applied to the DSK. Do not launch
Code Composer until the LED is off.

Problem: Your operating system does not support
Failed: USB device is NOT enumerated or plugged in.
Problem: Windows cannot find the DSK. Check
power and USB Cable.
Failed: Load USB Application.
Problem: Loader could not download the DSK

Failed: USB Channel in use by another app.
Problem: Another application is using the DSK USB
communication channel. Only one application is
allowed to communicate to the DSK over the USB
channel at the same time. Check for active

application is not obvious.
Waiting for USB Enumeration.
Status: This is a status message which indicates that
Code Composer Studio is waiting for communication
with the on-board JTAG emulator to be established.
This should take less than 10 seconds. Do not hit the
close button unless it is clear that something is wrong
(the progress bar runs forever).
