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:

  • 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 contain 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. [1]

  • NULL MODEM RS232 cable. [2]
  • Ethernet crossover cable [3]

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. [4]

To install the toolchain, follow the sequence. These are to be executed on the Linux host platform.[5]

Installing the SDK on the target

$ make install

Board configuration: LogicPD AM35x EVM
 
  Installation system of uboot images over TFTP for host 10.251.101.7
  Be sure u-boot is running on 10.251.101.125:3000 and no process (like termnet) is using it
  Press return to continue...
