These diagrams provide an overview of the setup. Complete list of prerequisites and setup steps are specified later in this guide.
Setup for Board Support Package (BSP) Build
For the BSP step, the recommended environment consists of a host system powerful enough to build an OS and a target system for deployment.
The host system is a Linux* machine with high core count and RAM.
The target system is a reference implementation, consisting of a supported Intel hardware platform and reference BIOS. You will install the BSP image.
Setup for Intel® TCC Tools
For Intel® TCC Tools, the recommended environment consists of a host system for development tasks and a target system for application deployment and execution.
The host system is a Linux* machine, which can be the same as the build host or a separate, less powerful machine. You will install Intel® TCC Tools for development.
On the target system where you installed the BSP image, you will install Intel® TCC Tools.
