The purpose of this Getting Started Guide (GSG) is to walk you through setting up a development system for the DM355. You should proceed through this guide in the order given for best results. By the end of this Getting Started Guide you will have the DM355 DVEVM hardware setup, a Linux host development environment configured, and a Linux target booting to run some provided demonstration software. You should also bookmark the DM355 category since new articles will continue to appear here.
For an overview of the DVEVM please see the GSG: DVEVM Overview page.
For information on setting up the DM355 DVEVM hardware please see the GSG: DM355 DVEVM Hardware Setup page.
