How to Use the BSP for the TI OMAP5912 Aruba Board (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


You can use the sample board support package (BSP) to quickly evaluate the new Windows Embedded CE 6.0 operating system (OS) features on the TI OMAP5912 Aruba Board.

For more information about the sample BSPs included in Windows Embedded CE for ARM microprocessors, see ARM BSPs.

  • You have installed Platform Builder for Windows Embedded CE 6.0. The latest Platform Builder tools are hosted in the Visual Studio 2005 shell.
  • You included support for ARMV4I microprocessors when you installed Platform Builder. If you did not, reinstall Platform Builder and include support for ARMV4I.
    The ARMV4I is an ARMV4 build that supports interworking, which enables the ARMV4I to handle 32-bit code to and from 16-bit code jumps. The ARMV4 kernel image is the same as the ARMV4I kernel image, except it does not support interworking. After you select your choice of microprocessor support, all necessary tools and code binaries needed to support the processor architecture are installed.
  • You are downloading a Windows Embedded CE-based debug or release run-time image to a TI OMAP5912 Aruba Board.
  • You have downloaded and installed the OMAP Software Tools from the TI Web site.
