1. Overview

1.1. Introduction

The Texas Instruments Platform Development Kit (PDK) is a single scalable software driver package that offers streamlined development on TI’s Processors. The PDK package contains device abstraction layer libraries and peripheral/board level sample/demo examples that demonstrate the capabilities of the peripherals for development, deployment and execution of applications.

The high level block diagram of PDK is shown in below figure.

1.2. Scope

The purpose of this guide is to quickly provide the information you need most while evaluating and developing applications on a TI embedded processor, specifically running embedded real-time operating system. It is not intended to be a thorough design document. As such, the focus is on application programming interfaces (API), build information, and examples to use as a template to start development.
