Software and tools
TI supports the Linux Mainline kernel, providing a robust software foundation built on long-term stable (LTS) kernels developed by the Linux community. You get the benefit of engaging with the community so you can focus on device differentiation and reach full-entitlement on your hardware.
TI’s heterogeneous multi-core processors SoCs include the option of both Cortex A and Cortex R cores and support FreeRTOS on selected devices. Access to a mature and established open-source offering helps reduce software development effort and speed time to market. TI also supports ready-to-use RTOS-compatible drivers to accelerate development.
The AM62x processor family supports Android™ software development kits for embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-box access to benchmarks and demonstrations.
While you have a lot of flexibility with our open-source and non-OS option, we know that sometimes your applications require very specific support. Whether you are working on a specific application, or just need a different level of performance, our partners offer operating system expertise including QNX, Green Hills, Wind River and a host of AutoSAR experts.
Our robust development environment, centered on Code Composer Studio™ IDE, is built with your convenience and ease-of-use in mind. You need to get to market fast, iterate faster, and scale your innovations quickly and seamlessly across diverse families of equipments. From our unique cloud environment of easy resource exploration and browser-based development tools to advanced debugging on your desktop, our development tools enable your journey from discovery to production.
