programming utility UniFlash 3. 4.1.
and make sure you download
v3.4.1 with support for CC3200
(the offline installer used for this
article). Again, you will need your
account with TI to be able to get
this free utility. Once downloaded,
unzip and run the setup file.
If you have Windows 10,
you’ll need to run this setup file in
Windows Compatibility Mode. We
allowed Windows to automatically
select compatibility and it picked
Windows 8 mode.
Select the default installation
directory (c:\ti\unflash_ 3. 4). On
the Select Components menu
window, all boxes are checked by
default. Keep these defaults and go
to the next menu. On the Select
Debug Probes menu, no boxes
should be selected. Select Next and Finish.
Once installation is complete, let it launch and make
sure UniFlash starts up. We have now achieved CCS
installation and setup! Figure 2 is what the installation
directory should look like once everything is installed.
Temperature Sensor on the
We’ll use one of the SDK examples to demonstrate
how to use CCS to edit, compile, and run programs
on CC3200. Go to C:\ti\CC3200SDK_1.3.0\cc3200-
sdk directory. In the ..\docs folder, you’ll find numerous
documentation and user manuals. All of the examples are
documented and their pdfs are located here as well under
the ..\examples directory. The temperature sensor example
we’ll use is documented in the CC32xx I2C Application.pdf.
This example demonstrates how to access and read
the onboard temperature sensor and accelerometer via an
I2C bus. We’ll cover the details of accessing and reading
the temperature sensor but accomplishing the same for the
accelerometer follows a similar procedure.
In the ..\hardware folder, you’ll find the necessary
schematics. Sheet 4 contains the temperature sensor. Refer
to Figure 3.
