TDA4VM: PROCESSOR-SDK-RTOS-J721E/Vision_Apps: Linux filesystem for SDK build on TI TDA4 EVM

Part Number: TDA4VM
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: J721EXSOMXEVM, J721EXCPXEVM


We are currently working with:



Earlier, we were working with PSDK-RTOS, and plan to migrate our existing apps to PSDK-RTOS

As per instructions at, the Linux filesystem package to be used was named tisdk-default-image-${SOC}-evm.tar.xz.

For the new SDK, as per instructions at, we have to use Linux filesystem package tisdk-edgeai-image-${SOC}-evm.tar.xz. But another Linux filesystem package with name tisdk-default-image-${SOC}-evm.tar.xz is also available for this SDK.

I have 2 questions:

1. What is the difference between tisdk-default-image-${SOC}-evm.tar.xz and tisdk-edgeai-image-${SOC}-evm.tar.xz in PSDK-RTOS08.06.01.03?

2. Which filesystem package should I use to build the PSDK-RTOS for my EVM?

Thanks and regards.

  • Hello,

    Are there any updates for this thread?

    I would appreciate a quick response; I cannot proceed without clarification.

    Thanks and regards.

  • Hi Sagar,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    The edge ai file system consists of additional edgeai related components that we released as a separate package in the earlier releases.

    Otherwise, there is no difference between edgeai or default filesystem apart from the extra edgeai components.

    Hence, you could use either of them for SDK 8.6, and continue to use default for SDK 8.5

    I would suggest to use edgeAI filesystem, on SDK 8.6 as in future releases, you would have on this filesystem.



  • Hello Nikhil,

    Thank you for the reply.

    As per your suggestion, I will proceed with the edgeAI package.
