Now Featuring Free, Custom Support for Yocto Project Configuration ... LinuxLink 5.0 Is Here!

Our newly released LinuxLink 5.0 features “Bakery” — our Web-based tool that enables you to easily configure a custom BSP for Yocto Project based development — and a streamlined interface.

Bakery enables you to:

  • Start your development from an official, semiconductor-backed reference BSP definition,
  • Search for the APIs you need for your development and
  • Customize your configuration with help from the intuitive wizard.

Once you’ve configured your custom image with Bakery, you simply download and run our generated Yocto Project installer to set up the development environment required to build it. It’s that easy!

Timesys’ LinuxLink 5.0 is Yocto Project Compatible. The YP Core release that Bakery uses for your image is the same release that’s maintained upstream, with an additional custom layer added for you.

Build-centric dashboard and workflow

LinuxLink 5.0 features a new build-centric dashboard and workflow. The dashboard is where you create and manage all of your custom configurations, including images and Yocto Project installers. From the dashboard, you can kick off a new configuration, modify and permanently delete a saved configuration as well as fork and archive images and installers. To get started with your development, from the dashboard you simply choose your preferred build engine (Yocto Project or Timesys Factory), select a target / machine, and jump into customizing your new configuration.

Integration with Timesys’ TimeStorm IDE

LinuxLink Factory built SDKs and those built by Yocto are automatically recognized in Timesys’ TimeStorm IDE, enabling them to be used in the development, debugging and profiling of system and application-level Linux software.

Additional Timesys Offerings

While LinuxLink makes it easy for you to get your development platform up and running, we know each project has its own unique challenges. When those challenges arise, we can help. We offer commercial support, enabling you to get help with troubleshooting development issues at any stage in your development. If your engineering team is looking to expedite your custom product development, engage with Timesys Professional Services, and leverage our years of experience. Our extensive services menu ranges from project design review and building your custom Linux platform, to integrating your application and remote updates.

Timesys Adds Support for the Digi ConnectCore 6 SOM to LinuxLink 5.0

Timesys has expanded its award-winning LinuxLink offering for the widely popular NXP/Freescale i.MX 6 Series applications processor to include support for the Digi ConnectCore® 6 SoM.

LinuxLink 5.0 includes Bakery, a Yocto Project based set of tools. Timesys’ Bakery leverages Digi’s reference BSP definition and offers customers a new and powerful development option for embedded Linux product design using the ConnectCore 6 module.

Bakery enables developers to quickly and easily jump start their Yocto Project based development for the Digi ConnectCore 6 Single Board Computer (SBC), which is built on the ConectCore module, even if they have no prior experience with Yocto Project based development. Developers simply configure their custom image and then download and run our generated Yocto Project installer to set up the development environment required to build it.

In addition to LinuxLink, Timesys also offers commercial support to assist developers with build and runtime issues. For development teams wanting to quickly get up to speed on Yocto Project standards, Timesys offers customized training. And for development teams needing additional engineering expertise or resources, Timesys offers professional services.

Configure a custom Yocto Project based image for your ConnectCore 6 SBC.
