Release Information

Thank you for your interest in the AM64x Industrial Communications Software Development Kit (SDK). This software accelerates application development schedules by eliminating the need to create basic system software functions from scratch.

  • This SDK contains examples, libraries, and tools to develop RTOS-based Industrial Communication, Fieldbus, and networking applications on PRU-ICSS.
  • 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.

What's new

  • Ethernet over EtherCAT EoE
  • File access over EtherCAT FoE
  • Integrate NVM library for persistent data storage - EtherCAT examples now use EEPROM and not Flash memory to store EtherCAT EEPROM data
  • Ethernet/IP - The object dictionary size should be possible to change without rebuild of stack
  • IOLINK Controller - Added NVRAM support for AM243 LP and EVM in example app
  • Bug Fixes

Thank you for your interest in PROCESSOR SDK LINUX AM64x Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK is a Linux only package. The Processor SDK is a unified software platform for TI embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos.

TI Linux CI/CD Snapshot

AM64x Snapshot

In order to improve access to the very latest bug fixes and feature enhancements, TI is enabling Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) for AM64x processors. The patches for these changes have always been available on public repositories hosted on git.ti.com, and these source repositories could be built using the Yocto build environment on a daily basis. The new TI Linux CI/CD Snapshot makes it even easier to consume these changes with pre-built binaries of Linux boot images to try out on TI Evaluation Modules (EVMs and SKs) before migrating or picking the patches. A detailed test report is also published to help users understand the status of the build and features being validated. The Linux boot images from a snapshot can be regenerated using sources by following the build instructions provided on the snapshot page.

The daily snapshot is not a replacement for the official Processors SDK releases which have full documentation, training and support. The snapshot is a new easy way to try bug fixes and feature enhancements planned for the next SDK while enabling much more tighter integration with customizations and application development. This improved integration should allow users to release their customized code built  on the SDKs more quickly and confidently.

What's new

  • Linux embedded software support
  • Long-term Stable (LTS) Linux kernel v6.1 support
  • Board support package
  • Yocto Kirkstone (LTS) based build environment and filesystem
  • Debian distribution and pre-built deb packages
  • Bootloaders
  • Support for High Security - Field Scalable and Security Enforced devices
