Yocto Project Linux as a Platform for Embedded Systems Design
Choosing an operating system for an embedded system is one of the most complex and critical tasks for building a connected device. It has significant long-term ramifications that affect both development and the market success of a product. There are several factors that make choosing a Linux-based OS a smart choice: acquisition cost, source code availability, and its broad architecture support —all these factors lead to a significantly improved time-to-market and a reduction in platform design risk and effort. However, choosing a specific Linux-based OS can be confusing. A frequently asked question is: “With so many Linux-based platforms available in the market, why use the Yocto Project instead of a standard non-embedded binary distribution such as Debian or Ubuntu?” This session will provide the answer to that fundamental question.
