About the Yocto Project ®

The Yocto Project is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded and IOT products, regardless of the hardware architecture.

As an open source project, the Yocto Project operates with a hierarchical governance structure based on meritocracy and managed by its chief architect, Richard Purdie, a Linux Foundation fellow. This enables the project to remain independent of any one of its member organizations, who participate in various ways and provide resources to the project.

The project is supported and governed by embedded and IOT industry leaders who have committed financially, with platform support and marketing efforts to make Yocto Project a secure, stable and adaptable industry standard. Join us!
