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


SYS/BIOS and Linux Multicore Software Development Kit (MCSDK)

The MCSDK enables applications to use SYS/BIOS and/or Linux on one platform. Individual cores can be assigned to operate Linux applications as a control plane while other cores are simultaneously assigned high-performance signal processing operations. This heterogeneous configuration provides flexibility for software developers to implement full solutions on TI's multicore devices including DSP and Arm® processors.


Development Tools

Two platforms are available to enable developers to explore the full functionality of the OMAP-L1x processors.


OMAP-L138 Development Kit (LCDK)

The OMAP-L138 DSP+Arm9® development kit will enable fast and easy Linux software and hardware development. This scalable platform will ease and accelerate software and hardware development of everyday applications that require real-time signal processing and control.

MityDSP-L138F ARM9, Floating Point DSP and User Programmable FPGA SoM

This module is available to system designers looking for rapid time to market for applications requiring an ARM9® applications processor, on-board DSP and additional custom logic. Conveniently provided in a module format with Flash and DDR, designers save the time and complexity of developing a CPU/FPGA subsystem. The SOM is compatible with Critical Link's development kits, including the Industrial IO Development Kit.

Code Composer Studio IDE

Code Composer Studio IDE is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment for TI's DSPs, microcontrollers and application processors. Code Composer Studio IDE includes a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes compilers for each of TI's device families, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, simulators and many other features. Code Composer Studio IDE provides a single user interface taking users through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces allow users to get started faster than ever before and add functionality to their application thanks to sophisticated productivity tools.
