Complete software development environment based on the GNU Toolchain. Sourcery Code Bench for ARM supports Sitara processors, runs on GNU/Linux® and Windows® and targets GNU/Linux, uClinux™ or EABI (bare board) systems.
These free tools are downloadable from ti.com and help you further tweak your design to your specific needs.
An interactive clock tree configuration software that provides information about the clocks and modules.
Windows-based software tool which provides a Graphical User Interface for configuring pin multiplexing settings, resolving conflicts and specifying I/O cell characteristics. Results are output as C header files.
Gain insight in to the power consumption of Sitara processors. The tool includes the ability for the user to choose multiple application scenarios and understand the power consumption as well as how advanced power saving techniques can be applied to further reduce overall power consumption.
TI provides key runtime software components and documentation for the Sitara processor platform. Software development kits (SDK) can be downloaded on TI.com for free, and are included with TI evaluation modules (EVM) and development kits. SDKs for Sitara processors require no runtime royalties. They include board support packages (BSPs), tools, demos, documentation and more. O/S independent support includes peripheral-specific libraries, drivers, and application examples.
Processor SDK (Software Development Kit) is a unified software platform for TI embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos. All releases of Processor SDK are consistent across TI’s broad portfolio, allowing developers to seamlessly reuse and migrate software across devices. Developing scalable platform solutions has never been easier than with the Processor SDK and TI’s embedded processor solutions.
The Processor SDK includes support for Linux, TI-RTOS, and Android operating systems.
TI’s Design Network platinum member Witekio offers a complete Android software development kit developed and optimized for Sitara processors so developers can quickly get started on evaluating and developing on the Android OS.
