Using static IP between Linux host and the DVEVM

Keywords:static IP? Linux OS? DVEVM?

The typical development environment for the TMS320DM644x EVM devices from Texas Instruments, also known as the digital video evaluation module (DVEVM), involves connecting a host workstation to the target EVM. This environment allows for the bulk of the development to be done in the more powerful host hardware and transferred quickly (via connection medium) to the target EVM for testing.

The most popular target-host development environment supported for the DVEVM is based on the Linux OS; this involves running Linux on both the host workstation and the target DVEVM. There are many ways to connect the target and the host; for example, they can be plugged into a corporate network, connected into their own private LAN, or connected directly using static Internet protocol (IP) addresses.

This document outlines the process of connecting a host Linux workstation to a target Linux DVEVM using a static IP address. This method was chosen because it involves less hardware (e.g., no router necessary), there are fewer variables, and it provides a simple approach to connecting the target and the host.
