Why Choose Timesys Embedded Linux

We can help you overcome the challenges associated with embedded Linux development.

Embedded development can be challenging because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Almost every embedded project requires you to customize both hardware and software to build a competitive offering that leverages the latest in processor technology.

When you combine the need for customization with the growing adoption of Linux for embedded devices and the shortage of embedded engineers having Linux experience, it’s clear that overcoming complexity and time-to-market issues is critical to the success of your project, even your company.

Timesys is a Yocto Project Participant

“I want to …

… have high confidence in my development schedule.”

... use an intuitive development environment that doesn’t require weeks of training to learn.”

… start my project using proven, baseline reference software.”

… use open-source software components without jeopardizing the quality of my code.”

… leverage existing software as much as possible.”

… focus my efforts on the application software where I add value.”

… stay in sync with open-source patches without having to constantly scan newsgroups.”

… waste as little as time as possible trying to set up my development environment.”

… get technical support from an expert when I’m stuck.”

… shorten time-to-market by outsourcing foundational work.”

If more than one of the above statements applies to your Linux project, or if this is your first Linux project, choosing Timesys can help you minimize the time, risk and cost associated with building an embedded Linux based device.
