Software Development Guides, Pre-Built Images and Release Notes. When beginning to consider the phyCORE-AM57x SOM as a part of your system design, it can be a little difficult to know where to start. Here is a suggested work flow:
- Work through the Quickstart first to boot the development kit and then head over to Using Peripherals to help you exercise the hardware. Depending on your system requirements, this might be all you need to begin scripting and developing the basic functionality of your system directly on the target.
- If you are ready to begin writing custom applications in a cross-compilation environment, checkout the Application Development guide to help you get your projects setup.
- Once you have identified any limitations with the default phyCORE-AM57x development kit and BSP, the next step is to modify the hardware and/or software to meet your project requirements. Head over to the BSP Development page to begin working on your production image.
This Linux BSP is built using The Yocto Project. Yocto is a powerful toolset that allows OEMs to create production ready software images for custom hardware. The BSP is configured by default to support the phyCORE-AM57x development kit and using tools provided by the open embedded build system, support for custom hardware built around the phyCORE-AM57x SOM can be easily integrated in a modular fashion to the build system.
