Operating Systems

Aquila AM69 comes with a free maintained Embedded Linux Operating System. You can either take our Reference Images based on the Yocto Project, or you can use Torizon OS. Torizon OS is also built with the Yocto Project but it is a ready-to-use Embedded Linux distribution. It is configurable for your custom carrier board via the simple to use TorizonCore Builder Tool. This enables developers to concentrate solely on their applications, without having to worry about the underlying operating system and low-level device drivers.

Torizon Embedded Linux OS

Torizon is a ready-to-use Linux-based software platform ideal for use in areas like industry and medicine, where reliability is critical. It is a developer-friendly ecosystem that simplifies the process of developing and maintaining embedded software..

Reference Images for Yocto Project

Toradex develops and maintains a Yocto Project-compatible, production-quality Embedded Linux BSP in-house.
