Compatible Development Kits

Development Tools and Software

Users of the MitySOM-AM57 are encouraged to develop applications using the hardware and software development kit provided by Critical Link. The development kit includes a board support package providing a Linux based distribution and compatible GCC compiler toolchain with debugger based on the TI Linux Software Development Kit. In addition, the development kit includes support libraries necessary to program the DSP core using the TI Code Composer Studio DSP compiler toolchain.

To support rapid application development, several example projects are provided that demonstrate using both the 16-bit general-purpose memory controller (GPMC) and the PCIe interface.
