About this section

RidgeRun SDK for am35x EVM is a small footprint Linux support package that provides support for EVM evaluation board, and can be easily ported to custom hardware, while holding a minimal footprint and the functionality that you expect from a Linux distribution.

am35x-EVM SDK includes:

This section describes how to configure , compile, install and work with RidgeRun SDK Platform for AM35x platform running Linux.This SDK provides a fundamental software platform for development, deployment and execution on.

The instructions contains the information necessary to:

The document also provides detailed description of drivers and modules specific to this platform.

System requirements

Hardware Requirements:

Software Requirements:

To install the toolchain, follow the sequence below. These are to be executed on the Linux host platform.

$ mkdir –p /home/<useracct>/toolchain
$ cp arm-2009q1-203-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2 /home/<useracct>/toolchain
$ cd /home/<useracct>/toolchain
$ tar -jxvf  arm-2009q1-203-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
$ rm arm-2009q1-203-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
