Industries

Embedded Linux is part of our everyday lives – whether in our wifi routers, our mobile phones, even our washing machines. We are surrounded by Linux. Since 2004 Linux4biz has been delivering Linux porting projects in all those devices and more – into automobiles, defence electronics, avionics and medical equipment. Wherever an embedded Linux solution is needed, we deliver.


 

Networking

Day in, day out, we are at the heart of network operations. We develop, deliver and support Carrier Grade Linux at the highest levels: 5 nines availability for servers and 6 nines for switches. With a wide range of user spaces and kernel stacks for network equipment, we design and configure CGL5-compliant solutions spanning authentication, monitoring and device management, command line interpreters (‘CLI’) and specialized backends where Linux is now overhauling Sun Solaris. Our expertise extends into enhanced switching and routing protocols.

 

 Automotive

Different industries have different standards, and the automotive sector is no exception. We work with all five protocols defined within the OBD-II standard. The established CANBUS message protocol has proved so successful that it is now being used in industrial automation and medical equipment. We deliver embedded software solutions for CANBUS interface devices including controllers and receivers – no small task given that there may be up to 70 in a modern vehicle. Beyond CANBUS, we also work with the other four OBD-II protocols (and EOBD). Our customers include OEMs and those delivering fleet management products (for example digital tachographs).

 

 

 Avionic & Defense

Whether supersonic at 50,000 feet or fording a swollen river at night, our rugged avionics and defence embedded Linux projects are used wherever the action is. COTS can be a challenge when MILspecs need to be met, but our ruggedized solutions do the business. We work with COMexpress, and whichever of the current seven configurations is used, we configure and tune the kernel and device drivers for the selected LAN, SATA, IDE, PCI, USB and other interfaces to optimize the solution for the particular application and protocols – including computer-vision and RT.

 

 

Consumer Electronics

Whether in games consoles or PDAs, smartphones or pedometers, our solutions touch a large sector of the public in their leisure and domestic lives. For example we deliver custom PDA OS solutions with Adaptive UIs and Connectivity Stacks, making the plug-and-play concept a realit.

With 6 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide and smartphone sales becoming exponential, our solutions are firmly embedded in the market - we develop Android framework solutions and Apps for OEMs using both custom hardware and mass market platforms.

 

Medical

With RT implementation and optimized OS interfaces for a wide range of medical devices from whole body scanners to life support systems, we work to simplify the user interface, computer-vision and the monitoring of integrated sensors so that optimum performance is attained. Our embedded Linux solutions are at work everyday, in hospitals worldwide, 24/7.

In Summary

We keep solutions as simple as possible within the requirements. Wherever microcontrollers are used, we provide embedded Linux solutions, optimized kernels, tuned device drivers and high reliability.
