Y1 Yocto Expert

Building Linux using all the possibilities of Yocto

Building Linux using all the possibilities of Yocto
  • Using and customizing Yocto
  • Creating Yocto-based Embedded Linux platforms
  • Using Yocto to develop components
We use a recent Yocto version
Labs are conducted on qemu or on target boards, that can be:
    Dual Cortex/A7-based "STM32MP15-DISCO" boards from STMicroelectronics.
    Quad Cortex/A9-based "SabreLite" boards from NXP.
    Quad Cortex/A53-based "imx8q-evk" boards from NXP.
Course environment
  • Printed course material (in English)
  • One Linux PC for two trainees.
  • One target platform for two trainees
