TI provides key runtime software components and documentation to further ease development. TI’s online training provides an introduction to the Processor SDK and how to use this software to start building applications on TI processors.
The Programmable Real-Time Unit (PRU) is a small processor that is tightly integrated with an IO subsystem, offering low-latency control of IO pins on TI’s SoC devices including the 66AK2Gx, AM335x, AM437x, and AM57x Processors. The PRU is customer-programmable and can be used to implement simple and flexible control functions, peripherals, and state machines that directly access IO pins of the device, as well as can communicate with the application cores.
Debugging Embedded Linux Systems training series teaches the techniques of debugging kernel issues that may be encountered in embedded Linux systems. It explains the Linux kernel logging system and logging API, illustrates how to locate a particular device driver, and demonstrates how to read kernel oops logs.
This section contains task-specific videos that demonstrate how to perform debugging techniques on embedded Linux systems.
The 66AK2Gx DSP + ARM processors are designed for automotive and consumer audio, industrial motor control, smart-grid protection and other high-reliability, real-time, compute-intensive applications. This training provides an overview of the device architecture and the processor cores. It also includes training related to voice and audio processing, as well as additional how-to video topics relevant to the EVMK2G evaluation module.
This training series focuses on hardware design for the Multi-channel Audio Serial Port (McASP). Before an engineer gets around to writing software for McASP, it has to be wired up properly. That is the focus of this McASP primer.
This training series provides an introduction to voice recognition and some of the basic concepts of audio systems that use voice as a user interface. It provides a guide to required components and how they match to embedded processors and other devices available from Texas Instruments. And it takes a look at the software, tools, designs, and demonstrations available from TI for building your own voice recognition and processing application.
Linux is well-adopted within embedded systems. But debugging Linux system issues can be overwhelming. This training series teaches the techniques of debugging kernel issues that may be encountered in embedded Linux systems. This training series explains the Linux kernel logging system and logging API, illustrates how to locate a particular device driver, and demonstrates how to read kernel oops logs.
Similar to existing KeyStone-based SoC devices, the 66AK2Gx enables both the DSP and ARM cores to master all memory and peripherals in the system. This architecture facilitates maximum software flexibility where either DSP- or ARM-centric system designs can be achieved.
This curriculum provides an in-depth look at the K2G Processors, Processor SDK-Linux and TI-RTOS, and the Programmable Realtime Unit (PRU).
