I'm just starting out with embedded programming. For the project I need to have the same build environment as another team member, who unfortunately have older versions of tools. I'm trying to get up to speed and was hoping someone could help me understand some stuff. I'm going to get a EVMK2EX development board which has the cores needed. The other team member doesn't have the board but has the SoC 66AK2E05 directly. They have told me to use CCS v6 (risks and/or time prohibit them from upgrading). My confusion is how to get started. Do I need an SDK or just CCS v6? I think the SDK will give me linux for the ARM but the other team uses another vendor's linux which has been end-of-lifed. I don't think the flavor of linux is a big deal but what other stuff does the SDK provide if I have to get linux from the other vendor?
