The Linux Platform Support Package (PSP) for Sitara AM1x and OMAP-L13x provides support for Linux kernel, U-Boot, UBL and utilities to flash boot software on the EVM. This package includes the following components:

  • DaVinci Linux kernel. This Linux kernel is based on a kernel version available from the DaVinci GIT tree. The pre-built kernel binary included with the PSP package is built with Sourcery G++ Lite 2009q1-203 for ARM GNU/Linux from CodeSourcery.
  • U-Boot. This U-Boot is based on an U-Boot version available from the U-Boot GIT tree. The pre-built U-Boot binary included with this release is built with Sourcery G++ Lite 2009q1-203 for ARM GNU/Linux from CodeSourcery
  • User Boot Loader (UBL). This is the primary boot software which copies U-Boot to external RAM and starts it. This software requires Code Composer Studio (CCStudio) version 3.3 or 4.1 (CCStudiov4) for building it.
  • Flash writers. This software requires Code Composer Studio (CCStudio) version 3.3 or 4.1 (CCStudiov4) for building.

Specific version information of each component is included in the PSP Release Notes for the release. PSP drivers features and performance guide provides an overview, features, constraints and performance for each of the drivers included in the PSP release.
