-
am35x-EVM SDK includes:
+
-
*U-boot v2009.08 for am35x EVM with NAND booting support.
+
-
*Linux Kernel 2.6.32 (PSP )
+
-
*Variety file system support.
+
-
*Developer tools for debugging and profiling.
+
-
*Integrated configuration system.
+
-
*SDK installer for using with U-boot.
+
-

-
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:
+
-
* Install the SDK.
+
-
* Build the sources contained.
+
-
* Configure the drivers/ modules.
+
-
 
+
-
The document also provides detailed description of drivers and modules specific to this platform.
+

+
-
=System requirements=
+
-
Building and running all of the PSP components requires a Linux machine with ubuntu 9.04 or higher
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Target Hardware Requirements'''
+
-
 
+
-
* ZOOM AM3517 EVM DEVELOPMENT KIT.
+
-
The EVM ships with other peripheral hardware like power supply, USB, Ethernet and serial cables.  [http://www.logicpd.com/products/development-kits/zoom-am3517-evm-development-kit]
+
-
* NULL MODEM RS232 cable. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_modem]
+
-
* Ethernet crossover cable [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_crossover_cable]
+
-
 
+
-
'''Linux host is required'''
+
-
 
+
-
*For compiling U-Boot and Linux kernel.
+
-
*To host the TFTP server required for downloading kernel and file system images from U-Boot using Ethernet.
+
-
*To host the NFS server to boot the EVM with NFS as root filesystem .
+
-
 
+
-
'''Host Software Requirements''':
+
-
 
+
-
*Serial console terminal application .
+
-
*TFTP and NFS servers.
+
-
*CodeSourcery ARM tool chain version 2009-q1. [http://www.codesourcery.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/release858]
+
-
 
+
-
To install the toolchain, follow the sequence below. These are to be executed on the Linux host platform.[http://tiexpressdsp.com/index.php/GSG:_AM35x_and_OMAP35x_DVEVM_Software_Setup_for_Graphics_SDK]
+
-
 
+
-
=Configuration of the SDK=
+
-
 
+
-
The default configuration of the SDK is for booting from nand flash, unless stated otherwise on the release notes of the specific SDK.
