Four Embedded Architectures, Grooving Together Under the Yocto Project

As an operating system, Linux really is highly portable. But for all of the places that Linux runs, embedded systems are the one place where you see a huge variety of instruction set architectures.

Reflecting that diversity, the Yocto Project allows you to generate a custom Linux build for the four most popular architectures in use in embedded: x86 (32 and 64 bit), ARM, Power PC and MIPS.

To demonstrate that power, the Yocto Project team set up a demo at the Embedded Linux Conference with all four of these architectures running builds generated by the Yocto Project v0.9.
