Processor SDK (Software Development Kit) is a unified software platform for embedded processors providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos.  All releases of Processor SDK are consistent across our broad portfolio, allowing developers to seamlessly reuse and migrate software across devices.  Developing scalable platform solutions has never been easier than with the Processor SDK and embedded processor solutions.

Processor SDK v.02.xx includes support for Linux operating systems.
