The Tides are Changing for Embedded Linux
It wasn't too long ago using open source software like Linux was considered a key differentiator. Engineering teams could download the Linux kernel, add a few packages, and prototype a simple design or proof of concept. Many companies embarked on this path and successfully rolled out first and even second generation products. This simplicity helped Linux become commonplace in many embedded designs.
Today, the tides are changing. The easy download and go approach has turned into a challenging NO GO reality for product teams. Embedded Linux has drifted into deeper waters with faster currents and more complex requirements. Successfully navigating Linux-based designs into the oncoming choppy waters of multicore hardware, virtualization, and mixed OS environments requires more advanced technical expertise, significantly better tools, and optimized runtime solutions that will help project teams stay focused on core competencies and key product differentiators.
Join Wind River for in-depth discussion on the changing tides of using embedded Linux and how to keep your next design out of the riptide. This webinar will take a look at:
- The evolving business challenges with embedded Linux
- Innovations changing the game like security Enabled Linux, data plane software, and hypervisors
- Advancements in tools for greater code analysis, debugging, and testing
- Scaling Linux investments across multiple projects
