Up Squared Audio DSP
The Zephyr SDK 0.11 or higher is required.
Since firmware binary signing for Audio DSP is mandatory on Intel products form Skylake onwards the signing tool and key are needed.
The key used is Intel Open Source Technology Center (OTC) community key. It can be freely used by anyone and intended for firmware developers. Please download and store private key from the location: https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/blob/master/keys/otc_private_key.pem

Programming and Debugging
Build Zephyr application
Applications can be build in the usual way (see Building an Application
for more details). The only additional step required is signing. For example,
hello_world application following steps are needed.
Building Zephyr application
# From the root of the zephyr repository west build -b intel_adsp_cavs15 samples/hello_world
Sign and create firmware image
west sign -t rimage -- -k <path to otc_private_key.pem>
Loading image to Audio DSP
Note that the
/dev/hda device file created by the diagnostic
driver must be readable and writable by the process. This can be
accomplished via a simple chmod, via a udev handler that associates
the device with a particular user or group, or simply by running the
loader script as root:
$ sudo chmod 777 /dev/hda $ boards/xtensa/intel_adsp_cavs15/tools/fw_loader.py -f <path to zephyr.ri>
The only way to debug application is using logging. Logging and ADSP logging backend needs to be enabled in the application configuration.
ADSP logging backend writes logs to the ring buffer in the shared memory.
As above, the
adsplog tool requires appropriate permissions, in
this case to the sysfs “resource4” device on the appropriate PCI
device. This can likewise be managed via any filesystem, setuid or
udev trick the operator prefers.

Integration Testing With Twister
The ADSP hardware also has integration for testing using the twister
adsplog script can be used as the
--device-serial-pty handler, and the west flash script should take
a path to the same key file used above. Remember to pass the
--no-history argument to
adsplog.py, because by default it
will dump the current log buffer, which may contain output from a
previous test run.
