Release Infomation

Thank you for your interest in PROCESSOR SDK LINUX-RT AM64X Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK is a Linux-RT 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. All releases of Processor SDK are consistent across TI’s broad portfolio, allowing developers to seamlessly reuse and develop software across devices.

This release adds support for production Silicon Release 2.0 High Security - Field Securable (HS-FS) devices.

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
  • Yocto Kirkstone (LTS) based build environment and filesystem
  • Board support package
  • Bootloaders
  • Support for High Security - Field Scalable and Security Enforced devices
