Create your own custom embedded Linux® using an industry supported, open source infrastructure designed for embedded use—the Yocto Project (www.yoctoproject.org). Test your newly created Linux OS with the QEMU emulator and see how easy it is to rebuild it for your target hardware platform with a single configuration change. Learn a faster and more cost effective means to develop a custom embedded Linux image for your prototype or product. In this hands-on lab, students will learn how the Yocto Project build system is organized, how to write Bitbake recipes, and customize their Linux OS images. The material is based on real-world problems that embedded developers face in the industry today.
