Xilinx has joined the Linaro open source collaborative engineering organization developing software for the Arm ecosystem.
Xilinx has joined the Linaro IoT and Embedded (LITE) Segment Group.
LITE members work collaboratively on reducing fragmentation in operating systems, middleware and cloud connectivity solutions, and delivering open source device reference platforms to enable faster time to market, improved security and lower maintenance costs for connected products.
With a key goal to complete essential, non-differentiating, shared work as reliably as possible, Linaro relies on open source platforms – including Zephyr for Arm Cortex-M devices and EdgeX for Cortex-A gateways – to develop, continuously integrate and test code.
“Discussions between Linaro and Xilinx have ranged from LITE gateway and security work through networking, 96Boards, and Xilinx All Programmable SoC and MPSoC platforms,” says Matt Locke of LITE, “I expect initial collaboration will focus on the gateway, but I look forward to building on this relationship to bring the benefits of collaborative, open-source engineering to other areas in Xilinx’s broad range of product offerings.”
“Becoming a member of the LITE group will enable Xilinx to optimize the Linaro open source stacks with our All Programmable SoCs”, says Tomas Evensen of Xilinx, “we are looking forward to collaborating with the LITE community to enable end-to-end stacks in the IoT and embedded space.”
