Description

The Linux EZ Software Development Kit (EZ SDK) allows customers to evaluate their devices in minutes and begin development in less than an hour. This kit provides everything DaVinci™ developers need to evaluate and start developing on the DaVinci™ DM816x/DM814x processors. With the included Graphical User Interface (GUI)-based Application Launcher, launching demos, benchmarks, and applications is a snap. Furthermore, developers will find it easy to develop applications and add them to the Application Launcher. The EZ SDK also includes video/audio codecs and DSP-accelerated algorithms as well as tools, such as C6EZRun and C6EZAccel, to allow ARM developers to easily leverage the DSP for signal processing tasks.

The DaVinci Linux EZSDK is free from TI, and does not require any run-time royalties.
