Analog Devices Expands Linux Distribution With Over 1000 Device Drivers To Support The Development Of High Performance Solutions
Posted on December 1, 2021
Bangalore – As the open source Linux operating system celebrates its 30th anniversary, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announces expansion of its Linux distribution by recognizing more than 1,000 ADI devices supported by Linux kernel device drivers . Designed to enable rapid development of embedded solutions, these open source device drivers streamline the software development process for ADI customers, providing access to high-quality, tested software to create innovative solutions across a wide range of applications. ‘industries, including telecommunications, industry, military, aerospace, medical, automotive, security, Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, etc. This portfolio includes products from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., which is now part of Analog Devices.
Analog Devices has also released ‘Kuiper Linux’, a free Raspbian / Debian based Linux based operating system that is optimized for ADI devices and supports popular ARM systems such as Raspberry Pi, Xilinx Zynq, Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale + MPSoC, Intel Cyclone V SoC, Intel Arria 10 SX SoC, and Intel Stratix 10 SoC. New Linux distribution focuses on ensuring ready-to-use Linux device drivers, providing embedded customers with a robust system for software development , reducing risk and development time with pre-existing code that is peer reviewed and supported by industry. The distribution contains all of the essential components to run the built-in drivers and allows customers to integrate custom software. By providing both hardware and software compatibility across the entire customer ecosystem, the Linux distro will help prevent hardware lockdown, while minimizing software development needs.
â€œWith these pilots, we can serve our customers more holistically by streamlining the software development process and making it more efficient in terms of costs and resources.Said David Babicz, director of engineering at ADI. â€œUsing tested open source code that they know will run at the same pace as their hardware means customers can focus on innovation instead of building software from scratch, which helps them to get their products to market faster. “
Over the past 15 years, engineers at Analog Devices and collaborating organizations have developed Linux kernel device drivers in a range of Linux subsystems across ADI’s product portfolio including: audio, load and battery management, real time clocks, power management, video, industrial input / output, accelerometers, amplifiers, A / D converters, D / A converters, beamformers, phase locked loop, gyroscopes, unit inertial measurement, input peripherals, networking and universal serial bus.
