I'm new to FreeRTOS and am trying to get it running on the TMS570 USB dev board, however the only information is to use Eclipse and Code Composer. Can it be done? Has anyone done this before or offer any advice?

Extra question - downloading the software to the device, any tools or are we reliant on the TI tools?

I'm not sure what you are asking, but the answer is almost certainly yes it can be done, its just a matter of how much effort. If you use the CCS port then it will be easy. If you want to use any other compiler you will have to replicate the code provided for the CCS port in the syntax needed by your chosen compiler. Just like the Cortex-M port is replicated in GCC, Keil, IAR and Tasking.

Thanks. I assumed it probably could be done, I guess I need to spend time researching the other ports and looking at what is needed. One of the main drives for me is to do this on Linux and which GCC compilers are required for it.

As for loading/flashing the software to the TMS570, is that only possible with the CCS toolset?

I think, but am not sure, that CCS is available for Linux.

Presumably any tool chain that support the R4 can be used to flash the memory (IAR, Keil, etc.). If you are using vanilla GCC then I'm not sure what is available.
