EMAC OE Development Process
Software development for EMAC systems is performed in a cross-development environment. A Linux PC with a cross-compiler toolchain and Software Development Kit (SDK) is used to create software to run on the target hardware. EMAC provides SDKs complete with toolchain, development libraries, and example projects to enable development for all products offered with EMAC OE Linux.
EMAC recommends using Ubuntu 12.04 Long-Term Support (LTS) release for software development. Ubuntu is used for testing all of the EMAC SDK tools and documentation and can be downloaded from http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop for free.
All EMAC OE 4 SDKs are provided with Eclipse IDE integration support. The SDKs may also be used with a different IDE or through direct use of the cross-compiler from the command line.
