Linaro Working Groups
In 2010 the Arm code base was fragmented, slowing down innovation.
Linaro was formed to consolidate it.
Fast forward to today...
Linaro and its working groups have played a leading role in all of these achievements. Some challenges are too big to solve on your own - too expensive or too complex. Linaro provides a forum for industry leaders in the Arm ecosystem to collaboratively discuss, agree and implement solutions to shared problems.
Linaro offers multiple ways to engage in collaborative engineering
Companies collaborate with Linaro and other industry leaders on open source projects which address specific needs and challenges. A company can choose to join one project, multiple projects within a specific working group or all projects which Linaro drives.
Segment Group Membership
Access to projects within a particular Group
Group Members drive strategy within a specific segment and can participate in any of the Linaro projects run by their Segment Group.
Automotive, IoT & Edge Devices
Arm Based Cloud Computing & Servers
Windows on Arm
Linaro Consumer Group
The Linaro Consumer Group’s mission is to improve the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) ecosystem through collaborative activities that benefit members across all Android use cases. To learn more about the problems the Linaro Consumer group are solving, go to the Android Ecosystem page.
Linaro Edge Computing Group
The Linaro Edge Computing group (LEDGE) is collaborating with its members to establish a secure boot process that adheres to industry standards such as SystemReady, PSA, and PARSEC. The team is also tirelessly working to eliminate non-differentiating rework in the reference stack and implement features such as hypervisor independence and establishing virtio interfaces to abstract even heterogeneous system differences. To learn more about the problems the Edge Computing Group are solving, go to the Automotive, Edge & IoT Devices page.
Linaro Datacenter & Cloud Group
The Linaro Data Center Group’s primary goal is to advance the Arm server technology. To read more about the problems the Datacenter & Cloud Group are solving, go to the Cloud Computing & Servers page.
Linaro Windows Group
The Windows on Arm project aims to establish a healthy self-sustaining Arm open source ecosystem for Windows. To learn more about the problems the Windows on Arm Group are solving, go to the Windows on Arm page.
Club & Core Membership
Access to all Linaro projects
Core and Club members can participate in any of Linaro’s segment groups as well as in projects which cover all industries, such as the Linux kernel, toolchains, testing and CI. To read about the work we do in these areas go to Core Technologies page. Core and Club Members also have access to their own dedicated engineering team. The key difference between Core membership and Club membership is that Core Members get a vote on the board, allowing them to influence the direction of Linaro.
