 Board Enablement

Get Your Hardware “LinuxLinked!”

As a hardware vendor, you know Linux is gaining momentum and quickly becoming the dominant OS for embedded devices. Your customers expect you to provide adequate support for Linux so they can get Linux up and running on their development board, evaluate various peripherals and make sure the board performs as expected.

However, providing this support is not easy. You build excellent hardware, but it can be a struggle to meet your customers’ needs for:

  • A great, out-of-the-box experience with Linux that includes free, working board support packages and matching software development kits (BSPs / SDKs),
  • Support for multiple kernel versions — the latest as well as older ones,
  • All the necessary device drivers and packages supported across these kernels,
  • Sources for Linux components including kernel, packages and libraries, bootloaders and more,
  • Demo code for showcasing hardware features and capabilities,
  • Comprehensive documentation,
  • Man power and the expertise to trouble-shoot issues and
  • Commercial Linux options.

This is where Timesys can help. We have a program just right for you.

Join the Timesys Linux Enablement Program, and get your hardware “LinuxLinked.”
