Operating Systems

Linux - Microchip has created and supports a free Linux distribution. With our commitment to the Linux open-source community, we provide full coverage of SoC peripherals in the Linux kernel as well as bootloaders such as AT91Bootstrap, U-Boot and Barebox. Cross-build environments such as Buildroot and OpenEmbedded/Yocto allow you to generate Linux user-space applications and customized root file systems. Linux beginners can learn more from the dedicated Linux4SAM website, which features binary demos as well as step-by-step instructions for building your own distribution. Experienced Linux users can visit Linux4SAM for source code exposed in well-structured GIT trees and matching open-source project quality standards, including detailed enhancement information, changelogs, plus the ability to contribute source code. Selected partners have developed commercial offerings around Linux.
