Zephyr Kernel Build Flavour

All Scenarios OS Zephyr build flavour is based on allscenarios-zephyr distribution (distro configuration).

Supported images:

  • Zephyr comes with multiple sample applications. Take a look into sources/meta-zephyr/recipes-kernel/zephyr-kernel/ to see available recipes. You can extend them by adding recipes that use sample applications provided with Zephyr or your own applications.

Supported machines (default in bold):

  • qemu-x86

  • qemu-cortex-m3

  • 96b-nitrogen (96Boards Nitrogen)

  • 96b-avenger96 (96Boards Avenger96)

  • arduino-nano-33-ble (Arduino Nano 33 BLE and Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense)

  • nrf52840dk-nrf52840 (Nordic Semiconductor nRF 52840 Development Kit)

Build steps example:

$ TEMPLATECONF=../sources/meta-ohos/flavours/zephyr . ./sources/poky/oe-init-build-env build-ohos-zephyr
$ bitbake zephyr-philosophers

You can test the image built for the qemu-x86 target by issuing:

$ runqemu qemu-x86

After successful bootup, the output of the application will be similar to:
