Processor SDK Linux Automotive

Processor SDK Linux Automotive is the foundational software development platform for TI's Jacinto™ DRAx family of Infotainment SoCs. The software framework allows users to develop feature-rich Infotainment solutions such as reconfigurable digital instrument cluster, integrated cockpit, in-vehicle infotainment, telematics, rear seat entertainment, etc for next generation automobiles. The SDK is based on common Processor SDK platform.

  • Long-Term Stable (LTS) Mainline Linux kernel support
  • U-Boot bootloader support
  • Linaro GNU compiler collection (GCC) tool chains
  • Yocto Project™ OE Core compatible file systems
Linaro Toolchain Support

The Linaro toolchain is comprised of robust, commercial-grade tools which are optimized for Cortex-A processors. The tool chain is fully supported by TI and the entire Linaro community including Linaro staff engineers, member company developers and others in the open source community. Linaro tools, software and testing procedures are included in this latest release of the Processor SDK.

Yocto Project Support

The Yocto Project is an open-source collaboration spearheaded by the Linux Foundation to simplify the framework for building embedded Linux software distributions. TI makes this available through its Arago distribution. The Arago Project provides a verified, tested and supported subset of packages, built with a free and open tool chain. Additional resources on Yocto Project and TI's Arago distribution are available at

Processor SDK Android™ Automotive

Android Processor SDK Android Automotive (Software Development Kit) is a software platform for DRA7x infotainment processors, based on the Android Open Source Project. The Processor SDK Android Automotive has been optimized for high bandwidth and memory constraint use cases with acceleration engines on DRA7x processors

  • Long-Term Support (LTS) Mainline Linux Kernel support
  • U-Boot bootloader
  • Latest Android Pastry (AOSP releases)
  • Google's O pastry support
Processor SDK RTOS Automotive

The Processor SDK RTOS Automotive provides fundamental platform software and tools for development, deployment and execution of RTOS-based applications on TI's Jacinto DRA7x family of Infotainment SoCs. Combined with TI Code Composer Studio integrated development environment (IDE), this SDK provides building blocks for developing optimized solutions for applications such as audio amplifiers and network gateways.
