In this blog post we will highlight the latest updates and improvements in DEY 4.0-r1 LTS. We invite you to discover the most relevant aspects of the latest additions and changes to our outstanding embedded operating system.
First things first. DEY is an open source and freely available Yocto Project™-based embedded Linux distribution. It is the reference distribution for the Digi ConnectCore family of embedded system-on-modules, single board computers (SBCs) and development kits, and it is based on Poky, the reference Yocto Project Linux distribution. Digi Embedded Yocto includes customizations for Digi hardware as well as out-of-the-box software extensions not part of the standard Yocto Project that help your products get to market faster.
Digi Embedded Yocto is used to perform comprehensive board support package (BSP) validation on Digi’s SOMs and single-board-computers. You can further customize it by creating your own Digi Embedded Yocto-based distribution. Digi's Yocto instance, Digi Embedded Yocto, provides a wide range of support libraries and documentation to assist you in developing your next project and getting to market on your timeline.
The latest release of Digi Embedded Yocto, DEY 4.0-r1, is based on the Yocto Project™ 4.0 (kirkstone) release.
The following is what is included in the new release 4.0-r1.
