Q1: What is the default IP address for the TCP430?
A1: The TCP430 EasyWeb firmware IP address, as provided by Texas Instruments, is For your convenience, the TCP430 is shipped with this build in the flash. Just plug it into your network, ensure your network settings allow access to this IP address, ping it to verify connection, and browse to

Q2: I don't have a license to the larger IAR Baseline or Full products. How can I evaluate the TCP430 without having these products?
A2: We've provided a compiled version of the TCP430 EasyWeb firmware as a .txt file for your convenience.

Q3: How can I change the IP address without a rebuild?
A3: The easyweb.txt file contains the IP address around line 444. The relevant bytes are C0.A8.00.1E for the IP address Change these four bytes as desired for a new IP address. For example, IP address becomes A9.FE.D2.56.

Q4: The serial port routing jumper J3 doesn't have connections to UART1. What gives?
A4: The TCP430 appnote uses UTXD1 and URXD0 as control pins for the CS8900A. These extra pins are provided to allow hand wiring to a bit-banged port if desired, if for example you needed UART0 as an SPI port.

Q5: What is the difference between the two versions of Easyweb firmware provided by Texas Instruments?
A5: The version labeled "For IAR V2.X" has been updated to be code compatible with IAR V2.X and also incorporates some bug-fixes, speed improvements, and changes in the C style.

Q6: What TCP/IP stack is included with the TCP430?
A6: The TCP430 comes with the EasyWeb2 TCP/IP stack from Texas Instruments.

Q7: The new TCP430s have a F1611 instead of a F149. How does that affect me?
A7: All new TCP430s will now ship with F1611s. The sample code was org'ed for a F149, but the F1611 has less flash, so it needs to be reorg'ed appropriately. The downloads section contains a F1611 of the .txt to demo on the F1611 boards. The most important effects of this change are to make more RAM available for user applications and for increasing the work that can be done by the TCP/IP stack.

Update: TI has updated their firmware for the F1611 and IAR v3.x. This firmware is available from TI at:

TI Appnote SLAA137

Q8: Why does the CCE project say "unsupported"?
A8: We do not officially support Code Composer Essentials. Any questions about CCE issues must be directed at Texas Instruments.
