The typical development environment for Texas Instruments’ TMS320DM644x EVM devices, 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.

This application report outlines the process of connecting a host Linux workstation to a target Linux DVEVM using a static IP address.
