Custom HW Enablement
MontaVista supports the x86, ARM, MIPS, and PowerPC architectures with Board Support Packages (BSPs) and associated kernel, driver, and userland adaptions on SoC or third party reference hardware boards. However, most companies develop and then ship their products based on custom hardware created for their specific requirements. Engineering may start with these reference boards but will quickly move their development to custom hardware once available.
Making a Linux platform for your environment
MontaVista can adapt our Linux product to fit your software and hardware environment. We can develop a BSP for your custom hardware board and all it's associated architecture, I/O, memory, storage, network capabilities, etc. This can quicken triaging of hardware and software problems that arise in development and deployment as the diagnosis is done on the specific hardware. In addition, MontaVista can maintain updates (bug fixes and CVEs) on this custom hardware through our Board Maintenanc Program (BMP). It assures the updates that are released have already been tested and vetted on the hardware. MontaVista's BMP service can be extened to integrate and maintain additional userland packages not offered in the standard MontaVIsta Linux. MontaVista can assist by maintaining or uprevving these specific packages and running it through our robust QA on the customers specific hardware board.
