The Linux™ Digital Video Software Development Kits (DVSDKs) enable DaVinci system integrators to quickly develop Linux-based multimedia applications that can be easily ported across different devices in the DaVinci family. Each DVSDK combines a pre-tested set of operating system, application framework, and codec libraries with example programs that demonstrate decode and encode of audio and video data streamed in real-time to and from peripheral devices. For DaVinci devices that feature DSP cores, the DVSDKs provide a complete framework for developers to easily leverage DSP-accelerated codecs without having to program the DSP. DVSDKs are free and do not require any run-time royalties.

Features

All versions of the Linux DaVinci Digital Video Software Development Kits (DVSDK) combine all the software components and tools needed to begin development of multimedia applications on DaVinci technology-based devices. 

 

DVSDK v3.10 - DM355 and DM6467T (1 GHz) – PRODUCTION
The Linux DaVinci DVSDK v3.10 combines all the software components and tools needed to begin development of multimedia applications on these devices.

  • DM6467T Codec Server - H.264 HP Dec, H.264 BP Enc, MPEG-2 MP Dec, AAC LC Enc/Dec, G.711 Enc/Dec, plus TI Codec Engine, etc.
  • DM355 Codecs – MPEG4 SP Enc/Dec, JPEG Enc/Dec
  • Linux Kernel Port - The Linux kernel port features the latest version of the Linux Kernel (2.6.32) with driver support for on-chip and EVM peripherals. Developers who require further technical details on the Linux drivers for a device should go to the DVSDK download page and reference the Driver Data Sheet for the specific LSP.
  • Linux Filesystem - The Arago filesystem provides a Linux root filesystem that enable initial application development and the DVSDK demos to execute. Developers can customize the file system to their application by modifying the Arago OpenEmbedded recipes.
  • Code Sourcery G++ - Code Sourcery G++ provides the GNU C/C++ cross-compiler and GDB debugger for ARM926 targets. Developers can download either the Code Sourcery LITE (command-line only) tools or a free evaluation of the Code Sourcery Professional Edition, which includes 30-days of free support and an IDE graphical interface.


DVSDK v2.x- DM644x, DM6467 and DM357 Devices - PRODUCTION
The Linux DaVinci DVSDK v2.x combines all the software components and tools needed to begin development of multimedia applications on these devices.

  • DM644x Codec Server - H.264 Enc/Dec, MPEG-4 Enc/Dec, MPEG-2 Dec, AAC HE Dec, G.711 Enc/Dec, plus TI Codec Engine, etc.
  • DM6467 Codec Server - H.264 HP Dec, H.264 BP Enc, MPEG-2 MP Dec, AAC LC Enc/Dec, G.711 Enc/Dec, plus TI Codec Engine, etc.
  • MontaVista Linux (MVL) Professional Edition 5.0 - This is a demonstration copy of MVL Pro 5.00 with complete host (for example, build tools) and target file systems. MontaVista Pro 5.0 is based on the Linux 2.6.18 kernel. The demonstration copy may be shipped in production systems, but developers will typically need to optimize the file system contents for their application. Developers can optionally purchase the MontaVista DevRocket IDE, access to updates and support documentation via the Monta Vista Zone, and the Monta Vista library optimization tool that simplifies customization of Linux configurations.
  • Linux Support Package (LSP) - The LSP contains the drivers for the on-chip peripherals for a DaVinci device and EVM peripherals. Developers who require further technical details on the Linux drivers for a device should go to the DVSDK download page and reference the Driver Data Sheet for the specific LSP.
