I want to combine two TI example projects, specifically UART and PWM related. Obviously, the example projects have conflicting resource configurations, which I would like to resolve via XDCTools/app.cfg adjustments. Specifically, I would like to adapt the Timer configuration, but I find the app.cfg UI in CCS 9 incomprehensible.

Unfortunately, the TI documentation appears to me being a mess of circular references. Is there a current user/reference guide for XDCTools/CCS somewhere available?

Friedrich, I am guessing you were trying to use XGconf, which is a graphical interface that we don't actively develop anymore and the documentation for it is incomplete. But, you can right-click on your CFG file and open it in a text editor. These scripts are pretty straight-forward, I think, and you could try adjusting your configuration in the text editor. Reply back if you have any problems doing so.
The main documentation page for XDCtools is
Timers are developed within SYS/BIOS, and the SYS/BIOS documentation in CCS is in Help->Help Contents->SYS/BIOS. There is a User's Guide and the API reference.

Sasha, thank you for following up on this and your advice. Meanwhile, I came across the "TI-RTOS Kernel (SYS/BIOS) User's Guide", February 2018, Literature Number: SPRUEX3U, which provides the information I was missing on the XDCTools configuration parameters.

In order to understand the philosophy behind the driver libraries, I found following docs valuable:
- TI-RTOS 2.20 User's Guide, June 2016, Literature Number: SPRUHD4M
- TivaWare(tm) Peripheral Driver Library User's Guide, revised July 2016, Literature Number: SPMU298D
- Tiva TM TM4C123GH6PM Microcontroller Data Sheet, 2007-2014, Literature Number: SPMS376E (for my EK-TM4C123GXL)
(the literature number is convenient for retrieval from

Unfortunately, TI decided not support TI-RTOS on Hercules devices (I understand the rational, but still unwise in my opionion) which means having to dig into HalCoGen/FreeRTOS for my RM57LX LaunchPad.
