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 Sitara™ 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 Sitara™ 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.

TI Designs

In addition to development boards, TI publishes TI Designs to aid developers implement specific applications or functionality.


Support & community

You know what processor you want to use, you ordered the hardware tools and downloaded the software tools, now you need to know what support resources are available in case you have any questions.

Technical Documents

Technical documents are available in each of the AM5K2Ex product folders:

TI E2E Community

TI's E2E community includes support forums in which you can search for answers to your question or submit a new question. You may find your question has already been answered.
