Torizon is an upcoming Linux-based software platform that simplifies developing and maintaining embedded software. It allows you to configure the system for your use case quickly and easily, so you can focus on application development instead of Linux builds.
Internal Research and Development
Very early public Alpha Release
Torizon will be a new Toradex software project providing you a simple way to develop and maintain your software.
It is currently in very early access; learn more about the current status.
Ready-to-use Linux distribution
Built-in, automotive-grade, over-the-air update capabilities
accessible security features
Optimized real-time option
Modern continuous integration infrastructure and verification
Torizon is built as a modular system. It can be easily adjusted to your needs without the learning curve of the Yocto Project, and every part is updatable to keep your system secure. TorizonCore is a lightweight base system that contains the Linux Kernel and basic services, such as an over-the-air client and an optional container runtime. TorizonCore is open-source.
Software containers are a popular concept in the cloud computing field. A container contains applications and required software packages while sharing the kernel with the rest of the system. This allows for simpler application deployment and updatability while increasing security.
With Torizon, you can get started right away. Torizon provides a Debian container, including Apt Package Manager. This setup is ideal for your first steps, as it allows you to download and try a large number of deb packages. Additionally, Toradex will also provide a wide range of development tools for pin configuration, display settings, performance monitoring and more. All tools are equipped with both local and web-passed remote UIs.
Torizon is in an early stage. Toradex Labs offers you a glimpse into this work in progress. Many features mentioned on this page are not ready at this time. In the meantime, if you'd like to take a look or even give it a try, we would welcome your participation and feedback.
