New In This Release


  • General
    • Support for additional SOM Variants:
      • PCM-057-41300111I
      • PCM-057-41201111I
      • PCM-057-40201111I
      • PCM-057-50201111I
      • PCM-057-50500111I
    • Nomenclature: am572x has replaced am57xx where what is being addressed is specific to am572x and not necessarily compatible with the general AM57xx family. e.g. am57xx-phycore-rdk.dts is now am572x-phycore-rdk.dts
  • Yocto
    • MACHINE: Additional machine configurations for different silicon options
      • am5726-phycore-rdk: intended for PCM-057-xxxx1xxxx SOM variants (AM5726 silicon)–excludes all 2D/3D support
      • am5728-phycore-rdk: intended for PCM-057-xxxx0xxxx SOM variants (AM5726 silicon)–full-featured
      • am572x-phycore-rdk: default kit SOM (currently PCM-057-41300111I)
    • Images: New image target added to reduce filesystem bloat
      • phytec-tisdk-image: excludes the majority of the TISDK demos and benchmarks without removing additional support (assuming it is supported by the MACHINE)
  • Kernel
    • Devicetree: Rearranged device tree files to enable all SOM features by default, most carrier board features, and exclude what is not supported in SOM-specific variants. See 
  • U-Boot
    • DDR: Support for 4 GiB (4x MT41K512M16HA-125) configurations
      • Additional CONFIG_PCM_057_512M16_x4_DDR to build for 4 GiB configurations
    • Build: New defconfig options that include the corresponding CONFIG_PCM_057_###M16_x4_DDR option for building support for either 2GiB or 4GiB configurations
      • am572x_phycore_rdk_256M16_x4_defconfig: PCM-057-4xxxxxxxx SOM variants (2GiB)
      • am572x_phycore_rdk_512M16_x4_defconfig: PCM-057-5xxxxxxxx SOM variants (4GiB)
      • am572x_phycore_rdk_defconfig: default kit SOM (currently PCM-057-41300111I)
    • Devicetree: Additional devicetree support in preparation for future FIT integration

Fixed In This Release


    • Kernel
      • systemd[1]: Time has been changed

Known Issues


  • Yocto
    • Package ccs6 fetch fails due to TI export approval requirement. Workaround is to download the package manually as noted in the BSP-Yocto-TISDK-AM57xx-PD17.1.1 Quickstart.
    • -dirty is no longer appended when u-boot or kernel sources are built with uncommitted changes due to the addition of additional version information.
  • Kernel
    • Display: TI's Matrix-GUI demo only displays to either HDMI or LCD, not both. The workaround is to enable one or the other. LCD-018 is currently the default.
    • QSPI: Possible read failures on flash devices with HOLD function (Erratum i916). A software workaround has been implemented to limit QSPI to DIO-SPI mode. The hardware workaround is to disable internal pull-ups and add 10k pull-ups on X_QSPI1_D2 & X_QSPI1_D3.
