License error question


I am getting a license error. I am pretty sure I have the correct sharc audio module hardware since the chip says ADSP-SC589

A valid license is required but could not be found.
The hardware found (ADSP-21160) does not match the licensed hardware (ADSP-SC589).
Licensed only for the following processor(s): ADSP-SC589 (via EZ-KIT License)
cc1458: Catastrophic error: could not obtain license

  • Hello,

    From your query we suspect that, you are using CCES EZ-KIT license only, which is belongs to SHARC Audio Module. Please confirm.

    If so, this license will allow you to use the SHARC Audio Module with CCES using an ICE-1000 emulator only. Therefore, you can't use this ezk license for ADSP-21160 processor.

    Please note that, An EZ-KIT license for the CCES development tool chain, has a serial number prefix of EZK and it only allows development for the EZ-KIT board for which it is licensed. This means, EZ-KIT license shipped along with SAM board will allow you to use only the specific ADSP-SC589 SAM board with CCES using an ICE-1000 emulator.

    The license does not allow the use of the simulator when debugging applications. The developer must use the emulator and their EZ-KIT board to debug applications.

    In order to use ADSP-21160 processor, you would required an Evaluation or Full license to use CrossCore Embedded Studio with ADSP-21160 processor

    An evaluation license can be obtained from CrossCore Embedded Studio, which offers a tool chain evaluation license the first time it runs.It can be activated once on a particular machine for 90 days.
