Tizen RT System Configuration

The Tizen RT SDKs used by the ARTIK IDE are created from Tizen RT source code and made available to the IDE through SDK Update. These SDKs come with pre-built Tizen RT System Configurations that you can use to develop your application.

You can create your own custom Tizen RT system configuration, choosing the modules you want included/excluded for build. You'll use these methods.

  • Starting from source code – you'll use command line tools kconfig and tizenrt-system-config.py to create a base SDK to your liking.

  • Starting from an existing SDK – you'll use the Tizen RT System Configuration utility of the ARTIK IDE to create a new version of an existing configuration, or possibly start with one you created from source.

It's not necessary for you to start from source code; just pick an existing configuration like 'extra' and remove the modules you don't need, using the built-in ARTIK IDE tool.

However, if you do want to create a custom base SDK and use the command line tools, you'll need to set up a Linux development environment and the kconfig and Python tools as described in the Advanced Developers articles.


You develop with a new SDK by configuring and building it, then choosing it for a project. The procedures below show how easy it is to create and use a Tizen RT system configuration.

Creating New SDK

Follow these steps.

  1. From the ARTIK IDE top menu, select
    Samsung ARTIK » Tizen RT System Configuration.

  2. From the provided configuration screen, select or un-select the desired features.

  3. Click Build.

    Tip: Temporarily turning off Windows Defender will significantly reduce the time required for the build operation.

  4. Provide a name for the new configuration when requested.

Selecting Created Configuration

Once you have created or updated an SDK configuration, it will be available when starting a new project.

The image below shows an added configuration that we named "custom" in the selector.
