AGL for Renesas Porter board

Up to date step by step instructions for building AGL for Renesas Porter board are available here.

Automotive Grade Linux 2.0

The system DevKit allows developers to rebuild a complete bootable image from source code. It uses Yocto/Poky version 2.x with latest version of Renesas BSP and enables low-level development of drivers and system services as well as high level applications.

The following documents/components are available:

  • A quick guide: Kickstart on Renesas Porter boards
  • A Docker container ready to build AGL distribution (Yocto 2.x), SDK and contains extra useful tools.
  • A documentation guide on how to build from scratch an image and its SDK for Renesas Porter board
  • A documentation guide on how to build AGL applications
  • A documentation guide on how to bake a new low level system service

Kickstart 2.0

This document explains step by step how to bootstrap a Porter board with AGL distribution and latest Renesas BSP then run a sample AGL application.

The following topics are covered:

  • instructions to build an embedded image of AGL 2.0 “Brillant Blowfish” based on Yocto Project 2.0 and Renesas BSP (meta-renesas)
  • instructions on how to install and boot the image on Porter board
  • instructions on how to add and run a “Hello World” application in the runtime system

Build BSP and SDK

The AGL DevKit allows developers to rebuild a complete bootable image and its associated SDK from source code. It uses Yocto/Poky version 2.x with latest version of Renesas BSP and enables low-level development of drivers and system services. This guide describes how to create a Docker container able to build AGL images and associated SDKs. The container is also suitable to build AGL Applications independently of Yocto/Bitbake.

Build Applications

This document describes the next step: using the SDK to build applications and deploy them on a target board running an AGL image.

Application templates and demos allow developers to start developing various types of applications:

  • Services
  • Native applications
  • HTML5 applications

This guide focuses on how to use these applications templates.

Applications templates are available on Github: https://github.com/iotbzh/app-framework-templates

Build low-level system service

This document focuses on the procedure to add a new low level system service to the target firmware image. More specially, it highlights the integration of the system daemon named “hostapd” in the Yocto image built within the Devkit container

Automotive Grade Linux 1.0

Kickstart 1.0

This document explains step by step how to bootstrap a Porter board with AGL 1.0 distribution and latest Renesas BSP then run a sample AGL application.

The following topics are covered:

  • instructions to build an embedded image of AGL 1.0 “Albacore” based on Yocto Project 1.7 and Renesas BSP (meta-renesas)
  • instructions on how to install and boot the image on Porter board
  • instructions on how to add and run a “Hello World” application in the runtime system

Prebuilt AGL 1.0 SDcard image

For convenience, the development images built in the previous document are made available at the following location: http://iot.bzh/download/public/2016/sdk/porter_images/ . They can be used as a starting point to boot the Porter board in development mode (see below SDK Kickstart).

SDK 1.0 Kickstart

This document explains step by step how to setup the development environment (SDK) for Porter board with AGL distribution and latest Renesas BSP.

The following topics are covered:

  • instructions to setup the SDK environment
  • build and debug a cross-platform C/C++ application
  • build and debug an HTML5 application
  • build and debug a hybrid (HTML5 UI and C/C++ service) application

AGL under Qemu

TBD

Generic build instructions

The README-AGL.md file located in meta-agl repository is updated regularly to reflect the latest changes in the distribution.

Generic instructions are covered in this article
