Toradex is extending its Torizon operating system for use as a full IoT development and operations (DevOps) platform for Linux devices. The operating system will now include free remotely hosted updates, device monitoring features, and a fleet management solution.
Torizon enables modern, iterative product development by seamlessly integrating hardware, a Linux OS, development tools, remote updates, and fleet operations. The result is a scalable solution for devices requiring high reliability and security.
Software developers can take advantage of TorizonCore, a ready-to-use Linux distribution that eliminates the complexity of maintaining a custom-built embedded Linux distribution. Smart options allow developers to tailor TorizonCore to accommodate purpose-built hardware and special product needs.
Torizon provides optional integration with modern tools, such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code, to speed up development.
Today, Toradex is announcing the extension of the Torizon platform to support not only development for IoT devices, but also the operation and maintenance of these devices. It’s seamlessly integrated with the latest Computer on Modules featuring NXP i.MX 8, i.MX 7 and i.MX 6.
The tight hardware and software integration also offers excellent quality control, speeding up product development.
Torizon also reduces the risk of device recalls. The device-monitoring feature facilitates early detection of potential issues. The upcoming remote-access feature makes it possible to address those issues before they lead to device failures. The company makes new business models possible, since businesses can offer software and features as paid add-ons, allow customers to monitor device fleets and much more.
Toradex’s Computer on Modules and Linux offerings are proven in thousands of applications, many of which require extreme reliability. Torizon targets these same applications, offering a wide range of security and reliability features. TorizonCore and development tools for it are offered for free.
