Overview

Processor SDK (Software Development Kit) is a unified software platform for TI embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos. All releases of Processor SDK are consistent across TI’s broad portfolio, allowing developers to seamlessly reuse and migrate software across devices. Developing scalable platform solutions has never been easier than with the Processor SDK and TI’s embedded processor solutions.

Processor SDK v.02.xx includes support for Linux, TI-RTOS and Android operating systems.

Linux Highlights:

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

RTOS Highlights:

  • TI-RTOS kernel, a light-weight real-time embedded operating system for TI devices
  • Chip support libraries, drivers, and basic board-support utilities
  • Interprocessor communication for communication across cores and devices
  • Optimized C66x algorithm libraries
  • Basic networking stack and protocols
  • Bootloaders and boot utilities
  • Linaro GNU compiler collection (GCC) tool chains

Android Highlights:

  • Based upon Linux Long-Term Stable (LTS) Linux kernel
  • U-Boot bootloader support
  • Google Android GNU compiler collection (GCC) tool chain
  • Includes a complete application framework
  • Allows for easy integration of customer developed applications via Java
  • Multimedia, graphics and graphical user interface are included out of the box

 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 arago-project.org.

Release Information

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the AM57xx Processor Software Development Kit (SDK) for a real-time operating system (RTOS). This software accelerates application development schedules by eliminating the need to create basic system software functions from scratch.

 

 

The SDK includes a real-time multitasking kernel, FAT file system, network communications support, examples, and drivers. The exact content of the SDK depends on the capabilities of the device, but all devices share common APIs and build on existing proven software components to ensure reliability and quality. The software components are fully tested to ensure that they work together with TI's Code Composer Studio integrated development environment.

 

 

More Information If you'd like more information on all of these choices, please refer to the Processor RTOS SDK Getting Started Guide. For a complete overview of the SDK, please refer to the Processor RTOS SDK Software Developer Guide.
