Texas Instruments introduced the Sitara Linux software development kit (SDK)—the first TI SDK based on a Linux kernel. TI's support of the Linux kernel allows customers developing on TI's Sitara processors to continuously access the latest devices, features and bug fixes.

TI's Sitara Linux SDK provides a stable Linux kernel for developers using 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.

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 to help customers decide when to migrate.

TI will continue to invest in 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. TI's Sitara Linux SDK based on the 2014 LTS release is expected in the fourth quarter of 2014.
