Platform Development Kit (PDK)

Definition - What does Platform Development Kit (PDK) mean?

A platform development kit (PDK) is a platform or operating system (OS) resource that enables the building of various environments or hardware systems. It is a more specific instance of the more general software development kit (SDK), which is commonly defined as a programming package that allows developers to avail and use a software product on a given platform or system.

Techopedia explains Platform Development Kit (PDK)

A good example of a modern PDK is Android’s Jelly Bean, in which Google released a PDK that promises more versatile use of the Android interface. Since Jelly Bean's release in mid-2012, technology companies, like Texas Instruments (TI), have devised new ways to use Android by building on Google's offering to the tech community.

For example, a TI release allows Android to run on a range of ARM(r) machines developed by TI.
