Install SDK with yocto

Hi,
I am new to yocto and have some problems by installing a SDK with yocto for AArch64.
The SDK you can find here: https://www.baumer.com/ch/de/produktubersicht/industriekameras-bildverarbeitung/software/baumer-gapi-sdk/linux-arm/c/14178

It comes with a debian package and a tar.gz file.
The tar is like this:
include/sdk-folder/header-files
lib/sdk-folder/lib-files
etc..


Question 1: What is the best way to install this with yocto ?

1. I tried to install the deb package like this with no success:

DEPENDS += " dpkg-native "

SRC_URI += " \
    file://baumer-gapi-sdk-linux-v2.11.0-gcc-5.4-aarch64.deb.zip \
"

do_install_append() {
    touch ${STAGING_DIR_NATIVE}/var/lib/dpkg/status
    ${STAGING_BINDIR_NATIVE}/dpkg --instdir=${D}/ \
    --admindir=${STAGING_DIR_NATIVE}/var/lib/dpkg/ \
     -i ${WORKDIR}/baumer-gapi-sdk-linux-v2.11.0-gcc-5.4-aarch64.deb
}
Question 2: Is this a good way with dpkg, when host and target architecture are different ?


2. I tried to install the tar.gz file like this also with no sucess:

# Use local tarball
SRC_URI = "file://${BP}.tar.gz"

S = "${WORKDIR}"

inherit bin_package

#For Error: libraries are added by mutiple providers
EXCLUDE_FROM_SHLIBS = "1"

#For Warning: was already stripped (precompiled sources)
INSANE_SKIP_${PN} = "ldflags"
INHIBIT_PACKAGE_DEBUG_SPLIT = "1"
INHIBIT_PACKAGE_STRIP = "1"

do_install() {
    cp -r "${WORKDIR}/include ${D}/include
    ...  
}
The way I thought here, is to extract and copy each file to the target inside do_install..

It would be very helpful when you could give me some hints for the best way to installing this package
Thanks
