Automotive, IoT & Edge Devices background

Linaro works with its member companies on developing open standards & interfaces which helps accelerate deployment of their Automotive, IoT and Edge solutions.

Client Devices background

Linaro works with member companies to achieve the optimal user experience on client devices by helping upstream new features, reduce technical debt and detect regressions.

Cloud Computing & Servers background

Linaro works with its member companies on strengthening the software ecosystem for Arm servers by making key open source projects enabled for Arm-based servers.

Core Technologies background

There are core pieces of software that all products rely on, building blocks upon which additional functionality and features can be developed to address specific use cases. Linaro was formed in 2010 to help develop these core pieces of technology as the Arm code base was fragmented, causing delay to innovation and deployment of products. We helped achieve this and continue to evolve and co-maintain these technologies, focusing specifically on the Linux kernel, Arm toolchains, testing and CI, security and virtualization. In recent years we have also worked to bring best in class ML Inferencing & AI to the Arm ecosystem.
