Building an embedded application for the AM57x includes the development of an ARM Application. This will include any or all of the following:
- U-Boot: The program that controls the boot-strapping of the hardware components to reach a stage where the rest of the system can run.
- Linux Kernel: The Operating System that runs on the ARM processors.
- User-Level Programs: The program(s) for your particular application.
Each of these areas use slightly different development tools. While an earlier example demonstrated compiling and running a simple hello world program on the Development Kit itself, this is likely not how you will want to develop your application. The tools available on the Development Kit itself are not meant for production-level development.
This page provides information about how to install a robust cross-development environment and how to build and debug the components needed for your application.
