TI provides key runtime software components and documentation to further ease development. The following software components are the ones most widely used.

Processor SDK

Processor SDK-Linux provides DSP developers with an easy set up and quick out-of-box experience that is specific to and highlights the features of TI's Arm® processors. Launching demos, benchmarks and applications is a snap with the included graphical user interface. The Processor SDK-Linux also allows developers to quickly start development of their own applications, and easily add them to the application launcher, which can be customized by the developer.

Processor SDK-RTOS provides DSP developers with full drivers and file system based on the TI-RTOS kernel, a light-weight real-time embedded operating system for TI devices. The SDK comes with chip support libraries, drivers, board support utilities, demonstrations and examples. The Processor SDK-RTOS allows developers to quickly start development of their own applications using Code Composer Studio IDE for RTOS development.
