The Linux microPlatform is a complete software platform for developing an updatable, connected, Linux-based device.
We provide you with a full system, including a recent stable kernel tested on multiple SoCs, a minimal base system built with OpenEmbedded/Yocto, a runtime to deploy applications and services in Docker containers, reference container Docker files, as well as images for getting started. Source is available for customisation and full control, along with binaries for getting started on several popular boards.
The base system's small size is resource efficient and minimises attack surfaces. The container-based application environment means you are free to use whatever Linux distribution, packaging system, libraries, or other software you choose from the myriad of options available. A typical headless product implementation with networking stack and supporting Docker containers will use less than 200MB of storage.
Foundries.io delivers reference Docker containers as part of the Linux microPlatform. These implement support for common device needs such as IP connectivity to Bluetooth devices, CoAP and LwM2M, MQTT, network proxying, and more. In our documentation, we show you how to manage these and your own containers on your devices. Using these in your application, you leverage the knowledge held by our team of open source experts to reduce cost and time to market.
