Hi,

Angstrom is a Linux distribution aimed at embedded systems.
The software development kit consists of all software packages used for your development: toolchain, kernel, bootloader, rootfs, tools, drivers... So the device drivers may be part of the SDK.

If you have the driver source code for Linux, then you try to can cross-compile it for your platform.
