It comes with a 32-KB limited Code Composer Studio IDE and example projects. Also available, the Piccolo USB experimenter’s kit includes a Piccolo controlCARD and also features USB JTAG emulation with a connection for an external emulator and power supply, access to all MCU pins, and a 32-KB limited Code Composer Studio IDE.
