How Embedded Linux Accelerates IoT Development


You’ll find that the quickest way to build components of an IoT ecosystem is to use embedded Linux, whether you’re augmenting existing devices or designing a new device or system from the beginning. Embedded Linux shares the same source code base as desktop Linux, but it is coupled with different user interface tools and other high-level components. The base of the system is essentially the same.

Let’s look at a few common cases.
