AM62x MCU+ SDK  08.03.00
Release Notes 08.03.00

Also refer to individual module pages for more details on each feature, unsupported features, important usage guidelines.
The examples will show usage of SW modules and APIs on a specific CPU instance and OS combination.
Unless explicitly noted otherwise, the SW modules would work in both FreeRTOS and no-RTOS environment.
