Analog Devices Broadens Linux Distribution with Device Drivers

Analog Devices' new Linux distribution focuses on ensuring ready-to-use in-kernel Linux device drivers, offering embedded customers a robust system for software development

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) has expanded its Linux distribution by recognizing over 1000 ADI peripherals supported by kernel Linux device drivers.

Analog Devices Linux DistributionDesigned to enable the rapid development of embedded solutions, these open-source device drivers streamline the software development process for ADI’s customers, providing access to tested, high-quality software to create innovative solutions across a range of industries, including telecom, industrial, military, aerospace, medical, automotive, security, Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, and more.

“With these drivers, we can serve our customers more holistically by streamlining the software development process and making it more cost and resource-efficient,” said David Babicz, Director of Engineering at ADI. “Using open-source, tested code that they know will work in lockstep with their hardware means customers can focus on innovating instead of building software from scratch, helping them get their products to market faster.”

This portfolio includes products from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., now part of Analog Devices.

Analog Devices also released “Kuiper Linux,” a free Linux-based operating system based on Raspbian/Debian that is optimized for ADI peripherals and supports popular ARM-based systems such as Raspberry Pi, Xilinx Zynq, Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC, Intel Cyclone V SoC, Intel Arria 10 SX SoC, and Intel Stratix 10 SoC.

Analog Devices new Linux distribution focuses on ensuring ready-to-use in-kernel Linux device drivers, offering embedded customers a robust system for software development, reducing risk and development time with pre-existing code that is peer-reviewed and industry-backed.

The distribution contains all the essential components for running the built-in drivers and enables customers to integrate custom software. By providing both hardware and software compatibility across the customers’ full ecosystem, the Linux distribution will help prevent hardware lock-in, while also minimizing software development needs.

For the last 15 years, engineers within Analog Devices and collaborating organizations have developed Linux kernel device drivers in a range of Linux subsystems across ADI’s product portfolio including audio, battery charging and management, real-time clocks, power management, video, industrial input/output, accelerometers, amplifiers, A/D converters, D/A converters, beamformers, phased lock loop, gyroscopes, inertial measurement unit, input devices, networking, and universal serial bus.
