Markets and Technologies
CCES License Types / Definitions: A node locked license locks the CCES software to a single PC using the computer’s MAC address. Each node locked license is tied to a single user, but can be loaded on up to four machines. A Node-1 license is a single user license and a Node-5 license is a five user license where each user can use the software on up to four machines. A corporate domain license (CORP) locks the CCES software to any computer on a specified corporate network (e.g. ad.analog.com, spd.analog.com, etc…) There are 10, 20 and unlimited user versions. (CORP-10, CORP-20, CORP-UNL) Customers should purchase the license type that reflects the number of users that are concurrently developing with CCES. There are no restrictions to the number of machines corporate licenses can be installed on, as long as they are connected to the specified corporate network.
An EZ-Kit license ships with applicable EZ-Kits. It behaves exactly like the node locked license except it only works with the EZ-Kit and emulator it ships with. It does not support a simulator target. An EZ-KIT license is included with evaluation boards/bundles for the following parts: ADSP-21593, ADSP-SC594, ADSP-21569, ADSP-BF706, ADSP-BF707, ADSP-SC573, ADSP-SC584, ADSP-SC589, and ADuCM3029.
Maintenance Policy: A CrossCore Embedded Studio license includes one year of updates, upgrades and lifetime support. The optional annual maintenance provides access to updates and upgrades released during the maintenance period. Updates released after the maintenance period will not run until maintenance is renewed. Renewing maintenance provides instant access to all previous updates. Annual maintenance is 20% of book price for each license option, for additional information please Contact ADI. Proof of purchase of the original license will be required to process a maintenance request.

Software Manuals (8)
The Compiler and Library Manual for Blackfin Processors describes how to use the Compiler for processors with Blackfin and Blackfin+ cores (ADSP-BFxxx processors). It covers command-line switches, language compliance, language extensions, built-in function and optimization, among other topics. It provides reference material for the functions in the accompanying C and C++ standard libraries, and the DSP library.
The Compiler Manual for SHARC Processors describes how to use the Compiler for processors with SHARC and SHARC+ cores (ADSP-21xxx and ADSP-SC5xx processors). It covers command-line switches, language compliance, language extensions, built-in functions, and optimization, among other topics.
The Loader and Utilities manual describes the command-line utilities for converting executable files into images that can be programmed into flash memory, and executed on the target processor as a standalone application without debugger involvement. The manual covers all Blackfin and SHARC processors supported by CrossCore Embedded Studio. The utilities described include ELF conversion utilities and utilities for encryption and cryptographic signing.
The Linker and Utilities manual describes the command-line linker utility, which assembles ELF executable files from previously-compiled object files. The manual covers the syntax and semantics of the Linker Description Files (LDFs) which guide this process, and gives examples for Blackfin and SHARC processors. Related utilities covered in this manual are the archiver elfar, for library (.dlb) creation and management, the memory initializer meminit, and the utilities elfdump, elfpatch and elfsyms.
The Assembler and Preprocessor manual covers the assemblers for the Blackfin and SHARC processors supported by CrossCore Embedded Studio. It gives the syntax for the directives supported by the assemblers and the standalone preprocessor, and covers their command-line switches.
The Software Licensing Guide describes the licensing mechanism used by CrossCore Embedded Studio. It explains the different kinds of license and the conditions and implications of license expiry. It describes how to activate and validate licenses, and how to administer a corporate domain license.
