The Linux microPlatform comprises secure updatable firmware, kernel and a minimal distribution built using Open Embedded/Yocto, to run applications and Containers on SoCs. Customer-specific services and applications are built using industry-standard Container technologies. This enables remote management of the product software from private or public cloud device management platforms or Edge devices using standard enterprise tools such as Ansible and Kubernetes.
The Zephyr microPlatform is the first downstream distribution for the Zephyr Project, and uses the Zephyr RTOS, MCUboot software and services to provide a continuously tested, secure, updatable, cross-architecture solution for microcontroller-based sensors and devices.
The microPlatforms are Cloud agnostic and are designed to support a diverse set of industry-standard hardware (Ethernet, WiFi, BLE, BLE Mesh, 802.15.4, LoRa, 5G LTE-M, NB-IoT already supported) and communication protocols (DTLS/TLS, UDP/IP, LWM2M, MQTT, HTTPS already supported).
