1.1.1. Download and Install the SDK


The Processor SDK Linux AM69 Installer (ti-processor-sdk-linux-j784s4-evm-<version>-Linux-x86-Install.bin) will install the necessary components to start your development on the TI microprocessor.

The SDK consists of a development filesystem, a target filesystem, example applications, toolchain and board support package, ease of use scripts and documentation.

The Processor SDK Linux AM69 now includes the ARM GCC toolchain. The Processor SDK Linux AM69 was built and tested against a specific Linux Distribution name and version, Ubuntu 22.04. Note this does not prevent the user from installing the SDK on other Linux distributions. Download & Install the SDK Installer Inside a Container

TI provides a Ubuntu 22.04 based docker image with all the packages that are required to install the SDK Installer.

The Docker image is hosted on ghcr.io/texasinstruments.

Refer Steps to Run SDK Installer inside a Container for a comprehensive guide.


Before starting the container, ensure that you have completed all the Pre-Requisites as mentioned here. Download & Install the SDK Installer on Host

Downloading the SDK installer

You can download the latest Processor SDK Linux AM69 installer from the Jacinto7-Linux-SDK-Download-page.

How to Run the SDK Installer

Make sure that the execute permissions are set. Bring up a terminal window and change directories to where the installer is located (probably the Downloads directory) and run the following commands:

chmod +x ./ti-processor-sdk-linux-j784s4-evm-<version>-Linux-x86-Install.bin

Alternatively, you can give execute permissions and run the “ti-processor-sdk-linux-j784s4-evm-<version>-Linux-x86-Install.bin” by double clicking on it within your Linux host PC.


As a part of the installation, the packaging will run a script to configure your environment and download the Linux devkit. This will cause the installation to continue for roughly a minute even once it shows that it has reached 100%.


If nothing seems to happen, you are probably running a 32-bit version of Linux. The installer is 64-bit, and will not execute properly.

Additional Installer Options

Invoking the installer with argument –help will list available options for the installer (e.g. text installer, etc.):

./ti-processor-sdk-linux-j784s4-evm-<version>-Linux-x86-Install.bin --help
