Overview:
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
