Linaro is all about end to end ARM based solutions, from IoT and Embedded, Mobile, Networking and the Enterprise. Linaro exists to help make ARM Linux (and it’s derivatives) better, our mission is: “Leading Collaboration in the ARM Ecosystem”. IoT and Embedded is interesting to many but it’s just not the embedded hardware, it’s collecting information and putting it to use.
Linaro designed the 96Board specification for both the Consumer and Enterprise editions and the mezzanine board interfaces. Linaro is not a hardware company, we are a software company so in this talk I will explain why did we did it and what 96Boards are used for within Linaro and talk about the unified reference build used on the 96Boards. Additionally I will talk about “Why 96Boards for Makers”, and some possible future directions. I will also cover how Linaro can help developers get access to limited ARM server hardware and access to an ARM developer cloud so you can develop and test your IoT apps from end to end on an ARM based solution.
