Development Tools and Software

Users of the MitySOM-AM57F are encouraged to develop applications and FPGA firmware 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 FPGA and application development, several example projects are provided that demonstrate using both the 16-bit general-purpose memory controller (GPMC) and the PCIe interface between the FPGA and the TI AM57xx processor.
