Embedded Linux for Xilinx Platforms
Timesys provides an end-to-end platform design approach that is well aligned with FPGAs from Xilinx, enabling developers to achieve a fast product design cycle. Customers can choose to purchase a LinuxLink subscription for help with their embedded Linux platform development, or to rely on us to provide a comprehensive solution that includes the LinuxLink development environment.
Timesys provides robust embedded Linux platforms for popular Xilinx FPGAs.
LinuxLink now offers two build systems to choose from: 1. Yocto Project and 2. Timesys’ Factory. Whether choosing Yocto Project or Factory, the intuitive LinuxLink UI makes it easy to jump start your development and configure a custom image for your Xilinx platform.
With a LinuxLink account for your Xilinx FPGA, you will be able to:
- Quickly assemble and boot an initial embedded Linux image on your Xilinx FPGA.
- Patch/configure/rebuild/update on your desktop with a properly installed and configured development environment.
- Debug/profile/tune with common open source development tools, including required kernel patches and development libraries/utilities.
- Obtain help on common development tasks with technical assistance and a rich library of Timesys-authored “How To” documentation and additional development resources including videos and webinars.
If you’re looking for a framework to help you get your Xilinx FPGA up and running quickly with an open-source embedded Linux platform, give LinuxLink a try.
