Summary

The Linux OS and Microchip’s microprocessors (MPUs) have gone hand in hand since 2002 when our first MPU, the AT91RM9200, was introduced. By supporting mainline Linux, you receive the full support of the open source community to create high-quality solutions. Microchip has been mainlining its kernel, bootloader and drivers since 2004, and mainlining has become a centerpiece of our Linux strategy because of the value it brings to users.

Microchip uses its www.linux4sam.org website to provide access to new developments which are reviewed by our Linux maintainers and fully tested on our hardware platforms. Using Long-Term Support (LTS) Linux kernels provides access to kernel maintenance for two to six years.
