TI delivers first Sitara™ software development kit (SDK) based on a high-quality, stable Mainline Linux kernel

Mainline Linux kernel support enables ease of migration by providing consistent access to new devices and the latest features

DALLAS, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) introduced a new Sitara™ Linux software development kit (SDK)—the first TI SDK based on a high-quality, stable Mainline Linux kernel. TI's support of the Mainline Linux kernel allows customers developing on TI's Sitara processors to continuously access the latest devices, features and bug fixes.

Benefits of migrating to Mainline Linux

TI's new Sitara Linux SDK provides a robust, stable Mainline Linux kernel for developers using TI's Sitara processors. To ensure high quality, TI collaborates with the Kernel.org community for code reviews with stringent acceptance criteria. TI also continuously stress tests the Linux kernel across various customer use cases and applications to guarantee stability.

TI's support of the Mainline Linux kernel grants customers continuous access to the latest devices, features and bug fixes. Customers can take advantage of a regular cadence of incremental updates, which eases kernel migration by building upon previous versions. Customers can maintain existing features and functionality for a consistent development experience. TI also offers easy-to-read change logs and release notes, made available on www.ti.com/linux, to help customers decide when to migrate.

Long-term stable kernel support

As a consistent top-ten contributor to Kernel.org, TI will continue to invest in Mainline Linux and collaborate with the Kernel.org community to provide annual support of the long-term stable (LTS) kernels within TI's SDKs, giving customers access to the latest improvements and bug fixes. TI's Sitara Linux SDK based on the 2014 LTS release is expected in 4Q2014.

Availability

TI's Sitara Linux SDK 7.0, supporting the latest Mainline Linux kernel, is available to download today. TI makes it easy to get started with short videos, trainings and a white paper. The SDK is currently compatible with Sitara AM335x processors. Future TI devices with Linux software support, including TI's Sitara AM4x and AM5x processors as well as TI's KeyStone™ multicore system-on-chips based on ARM® cores, will be maintained through a single kernel, extending the LTS benefits to other product portfolios.
