Yocto Information

Kernel Support

We aim to provide the following in our default kernel configurations used for our Yocto BSP:

  • up-to-date Wireless drivers via linux-backports
    • commonly used 802.11ac / 802.11n / 802.11a/b/g Qualcomm / Atheros chip based cards
    • commonly used USB based wireless devices
    • commonly used USB based bluetooth host controllers
  • on-board embedded peripherals (ie i2c and spi based peripherals used on our boards)
  • Gateworks expansion peripherals

In other words we specifically do not typically include support for PCI sound-cards, PCI video-capture cards, and a full suite of USB based peripherals. We try to include support for peripherals commonly used with our boards.

If you have a particular add-on card (PCI or USB) that you are using with our boards and have a stable open-source driver for it feel free to contact support@… to ask if we can add it in our standard board-support packages.
