How do I create a custom Board Support Package (BSP) for an SSP Project?

Latest Updated:10/13/2016

Question:

How do I create a custom board support package when using the Synergy Software Package?

Answer:

You can create a custom board support package (BSP) using a special tool- the BSP Custom Creator Tool. A custom BSP is usually required when you create your own target board.

The tool has 4 steps and uses 2 executable functions.

1) Create a base BSP from and existing BSP (Custom BSP Creator)

2) Create template pack using base BSP (Custom Pack Creator)

3) Modify BSP for custom board (User work)

4) Create final pack for custom board (Custom Pack Creator)

These steps and the detailed process for using them can be found in the application note available from the Synergy Gallery on the SSP Utilities tab here: https://synergygallery.renesas.com/ssp/utility#read. The BSP Creator Program is also available there. Download it by clicking on the download icon next to the blue version number. You will need this program to complete the process described in the above application note.
