The Yocto Project, a collaboration under the auspices of the Linux Foundation, is an open-source distribution that gives developers the ability to collaborate on projects involving embedded devices. The project provides a space to create custom Linux-based systems by offering the tools and support needed to create and develop any embedded device, regardless of architecture.
With a constant spin of embedded devices, and with hardware increasingly becoming commoditized, software becomes the key differentiator in an embedded or IoT system build. Developers aim to enable software systems that run quickly and efficiently, and silicon suppliers such as Intel and NXP are releasing their open source repositories to Yocto as a way to achieve this, while also promoting customization by end-users.
