Release Notes

Release Date:  November 30, 2012


This is Release of AM335x Linux PSP. This release supports:

The Linux PSP serves to provide a fundamental software platform for development, deployment and execution of Linux based applications on Texas Instruments silicon.

The Linux kernel and U-Boot software in this release are based on the following open source repositories:

Component Version Base Repository Base Tag (or commit id)
Linux Kernel v3.2;a=summary d3f8f7cc6d6ee6f50d3cfee335ad0994ad910d1c
U-Boot 2012.10;a=summary v2012.10

The code base for Linux kernel, U-Boot and power management firmware included in this release is hosted at the following repositories:

Component Repository & Branch Release Tag
Linux Kernel;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/v3.2-staging
(The kernel obtained directly from the above repository needs PM firmware to build when building using default configuration. Link to PM firmware repository containing the firmware binary is available below in this table. Copy the firmware binary .bin file into the firmware/ folder of the kernel sources)
U-Boot;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/amsdk- v2012.10_AM335xPSP_04.06.00.09-rc2
Power Management Firmware;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/master AM335xPSP_04.06.00.09-rc

What's Supported:

Refer to the What's Supported section from AM335x-PSP Release Notes for a complete list of What's Supported in this PSP.

New in this Release:

  • RTC Runtime PM Support
  • TSC/ADC: IIO and MFD framework migration
  • ADC driver support
