Embedded development software
Robust software development kits delivered in a single package
Our Software Development Kits (SDKs) provide all needed components to start embedded systems development, are fully tested and integrated, and release quarterly. Get to market faster with our operating systems, middleware/frameworks and stacks, application examples, demos, documentation and training--all packaged together for your convenience.
What's an SDK?
Application software consists of simple software commands that you want the hardware to do, typically C or ASM code. Development tools like IDEs, compilers, and debug probe allow you to create that application code for a given evaluation or development board. SDKs, though, are intended to solve bigger problems. Operating systems, peripheral drivers, hardware abstraction, protocols, and libraries all need to work together seamlessly--that's why our kits include all of these necessities and come fully tested and integrated.
See the italics content in the table below to understand how our SDKs are structured.
What SDK do I need?
Released every quarter, our SDKs are available for each of our processor and microcontroller (MCU) platforms. Choose one to get started.
The SimpleLink™ MCU platform sets a new standard for developers with the broadest portfolio of wired and wireless Arm® MCUs (System-on-Chip) in a single software development environment, which delivers flexible hardware, software and tool options.
Scalable hardware and software platforms with common code across our processor families allow designers to seamlessly reuse and migrate across devices to protect future investment.
