Overview

NOTE: K2x, C665x and C667x devices are now actively maintained on the Processor-SDK release stream. See links above.

Our Multicore Software Development Kits (MCSDK) provide highly-optimized bundles of foundational, platform-specific drivers to enable development on selected TI ARM and DSP devices. The MCSDK gives developers the ability to evaluate hardware and software capabilities of the evaluation platform and to rapidly develop applications.

The MCSDK enables applications to use SYS/BIOS and/or Linux on one platform. Individual cores can be assigned to operate Linux applications as a control plane while other cores are simultaneously assigned high-performance signal processing operations. This heterogeneous configuration provides flexibility for software developers to implement full solutions on TI’s multicore devices including DSP and ARM processors.

Features

MCSDK
Provides foundational software for ARM+DSP devices. It encapsulates a collection of software elements and tools intended to enable customer application development.

The foundational components include:

  • SYS/BIOS real-time embedded operating system on DSP cores
  • Linux high-level operating system running on ARM (SMP mode for multicore ARM)
  • DSP chip support libraries, DSP/ARM drivers, and basic platform utilities
  • Interprocessor communication for communication across cores and devices
  • SoC resource management
  • Optimized application-specific (small cell, transport) and application non-specific algorithm libraries
  • Trace debug and instrumentation
  • Bootloaders and boot utilities, power-on self test
  • Demonstrations and examples
  • ARM software libraries available in Linux devkit or via Arago/Yocto
  • Latest toolchain (ARM Linaro, DSP TI CodeGen)
  • Host tools, integrated development environment

Hardware capabilities include:

  • Packet Accelerator/Gigabit Ethernet
  • Security Accelerator (Limited Availability)
  • Network Development Kit
  • Serial RapidIO(r)
  • PCIe
  • TSIP
  • Multicore Navigator
  • HyperLink

Refer to the data manual for hardware support of specific peripherals.

BIOS MCSDK
Provides a software development environment that enables the use of the SYS/BIOS 6.0 APIs to implement demanding, real-time, signal-processing applications on multicore DSPs. The BIOS MCSDK provides well tested I/O and inter-core communication drivers.

  • Packet Accelerator/Gigabit Ethernet
  • Security Accelerator (Limited Availability)
  • Network Development Kit
  • Serial RapidIO(r)
  • PCIe
  • TSIP
  • Multicore Navigator
  • HyperLink
  • Multichannel Buffered Serial Port (McBSP)
  • Multichannel Audio Serial Port (McASP)
  • Enhanced DMA (EDMA)

Refer to the data manual for hardware support of specific peripherals.

Linux MCSDK
Provides a software development environment that enables the use of high-level Linux APIs for developing and reusing open source, community-based software packages to implement management and control functionality. The Linux MCSDK also provides well tested I/O and inter-core drivers that communicate and control cores running SYS/BIOS or Linux.

  • Packet Accelerator/Gigabit Ethernet
  • Security Accelerator (Limited Availability)
  • Serial RapidIO
  • PCIe
  • Multicore Navigator
  • HyperLink

Refer to the data manual for hardware support of specific peripherals.
