Board Support Packages (BSPs)


Board support packages are separate software packages that provide support for a particular Blackfin or SHARC evaluation board. BSPs are free to download and use, and do not require a separate license to be installed in CCES.


Blackfin BSPs include device drivers and examples that demonstrate the features of a particular evaluation board. More specifically, they include device drivers and examples for off-chip peripherals and examples for on-chip peripherals using the device drivers provided in CCES.


SHARC BSPs include example programs that demonstrate the use of off-chip and on-chip peripherals on a particular evaluation board.
