Automotive RTOS SDK for DRA8x & TDA4x Jacinto™ Processors


ACTIVE V06.02.00.21   21-Feb-2020   TI RTOS    


Processor SDK RTOS Automotive (PSDKRA) and Processor SDK Linux Automotive (PSDKLA) together form a multi-processor software development platform for TDA4x and DRA8x SoCs within the TI’s Jacinto™ automotive platform. The SDK provides a comprehensive set of software tools and components to help users develop and deploy their applications on supported J7 SoCs. Both PSDKLA and PSDKRA can be used together to implement various automotive use-cases in ADAS and Gateway end-equipments.
