Linux version of CCES: limited processor type options?


I just try to check the Linux version of CCES 2.9.1. It installed fine, without any problems.

Now, when I try to start a new project, there is only a limited number of options in the Processor Type selection dialog. There are only the processors ADSP-SC570-573 and ADSP-SC582-589. I am working on a project using the ADSP-21489.

Did I overlook something? Or do I have to download/install extra processor types or something... ?

Thank you,

Best regards,

    Hi Marcel,

    Please note that only the ARM core, available on the ADSP-SC5xx product variants, is supported by the Linux Add-In. There is no Linux support for the ADSP-21489 SHARC processor. 

    Refer to the Linux Add-In for ADSP-SC5xx release notes for more details on supported processors and evaluation boards:

    Hi Marcel,

    Linux version of CCES doesn't support Development, simulation and debug of Blackfin/SHARC processors.

    The support for Blackfin/SHARC processors in CCES on the below operating systems only.
               • Windows 7 Professional,
               • Enterprise, or Ultimate (32 and 64-bit)
               • Windows 8.1 Pro or Enterprise (32 and 64-bit)
               • Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise (32 and 64-bit)

    The following features are only supported via the Windows version of CrossCore Embedded Studio:

              • Development, simulation and debug of Blackfin processors
              • Development, simulation and debug of SHARC processors (excluding ADSPSC58x ARM core)
              • Use of CrossCore Embedded Studio Add-Ins other than the Linux Add-In
              • Debugging an Application using the CrossCore Debugger (TPSDK)

    We recommend to refer "Notes for Linux Users" in the below link:


  • Hi guys,

    For clarity, I was not trying to run the Linux add-in on a Sharc processor. I justed wanted to see if a could run the CCES on a Linux computer. We're doing an assembler-only development project on ADSP-21489.

    It 's just because all else in our company is running on Linux. So, we now have an old Win laptop running exclusively for Sharc development. But it works, so we'll stick to that solution!

    It isn't indicated on the website or documents that the Linux version of CCES has limited options, so I was giving it a try.

    Thanks for your answer!

    Best regards,
