Overview

SITARA LINUX SDK

Linux Software Development Kits (SDK) provide Sitara™ developers with an easy set up and quick out-of-box experience that is specific to and highlights the features of TI's ARM processors. Launching demos, benchmarks and applications is a snap with the included graphical user interface. The Sitara Linux SDK also allows developers to quickly start development of their own applications, and easily add them to the application launcher, which can be customized by the developer.

Linaro Toolchain Support
With the release of LINUXEZSDK v.06.0, TI further accelerates Linux development with support for the Linaro GCC-based toolchain. 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 available in this latest release of the TI Sitara ARM Linux SDK.

Yocto Project™ Support
With the release of the LINUXEZSDK v05.06, TI began taking steps to streamline Linux development. This version adds OE-Core support, giving developers access to a layered structure that is merged with the Yocto Project. The Yocto Project is 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 arago-project.org.

Release Information

Attention C6A816x/AM389x Users: If you have an older EVM that supports only DDR2 Memory, then please read the release notes for important installation and upgrade information before downloading the installer.

Attention DM814x Users: If you have an EVM without an Expansion IO with touchscreen LCD, then please read the release notes for important installation and upgrade information on how to configure your for HDMI display.

Internet Explorer users: right click, select Save As. In the file dialog change the file type to All Files before saving the file (otherwise the installer will be saved as a text file).

5.2 If necessary make the installer executable manually by executing:

5.3 Execute the installer on the host and follow the instructions:

5.4 Once installation is complete, the Software Developers Guide (SDG) will open. Follow the instructions in the SDG to start developing software.

5.5 The SDG and other documentation can be found in the docs folder of the EZSDK installation directory.

5.6 If desired, the SD card referenced in the QSG can be re-created as described in section

in the SDG. Optionally, you can download the Demo Binaries tar.gz file. This package is a subset of the full EZSDK and contains the scripts and documentation required to create an SD card or export the EZSDK filesystem on NFS. Since this package is much smaller than the full EZSDK, you can optionally download it ahead of the full EZSDK installer to quickly evaluate the demonstration applications. To do any software development, you will need to download and install the full EZSDK.

The EZSDK installer already comes with the sources of the TI software. If you want to download the additional source files of the open source components, download them below as an ISO image (

). Note that this is an

download which is not required to develop applications with the EZSDK.

If you prefer a physical disk, please click on

and one will be sent to you by mail. Please include your name and mailing address in the email if requesting a physical DVD.

There is a US $17 shipping and handling fee associated with receiving the CD.
