Analog Devices Expands Linux Distribution with Over 1000 Device Drivers to Support the Development of High-Performance Solutions

WILMINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– As the Linux open-source operating system marks its 30th anniversary, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announces the expansion of its Linux distribution by recognizing over 1000 ADI peripherals supported by in kernel Linux device drivers. Designed to enable the rapid development of embedded solutions, these open-source device drivers streamline the software development process for ADI’s customers, providing access to tested, high-quality software to create innovative solutions across a range of industries, including telecom, industrial, military, aerospace, medical, automotive, security, Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, and more. This portfolio includes products from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., now part of Analog Devices.

Analog Devices also released “Kuiper Linux,” a free Linux-based operating system based on Raspbian/Debian that is optimized for ADI peripherals and supports popular ARM-based systems such as Raspberry Pi, Xilinx Zynq, Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC, Intel Cyclone V SoC, Intel Arria 10 SX SoC, and Intel Stratix 10 SoC. The new Linux distribution focuses on ensuring ready-to-use in kernel Linux device drivers, offering embedded customers a robust system for software development, reducing risk and development time with pre-existing code that is peer-reviewed and industry backed. The distribution contains all the essential components for running the built-in drivers and enables customers to integrate custom software. By providing both hardware and software compatibility across the customers’ full ecosystem, the Linux distribution will help prevent hardware lock-in, while also minimizing software development needs.

“With these drivers, we can serve our customers in a more holistic manner by streamlining the software development process and making it more cost and resource efficient,” said David Babicz, Director of Engineering at ADI. “Using open-source, tested code that they know will work in lockstep with their hardware means customers can focus on innovating instead of building software from scratch, helping them get their products to market faster.”

For the last 15 years, engineers within Analog Devices and collaborating organizations have developed Linux kernel device drivers in a range of Linux subsystems across ADI’s product portfolio including: audio, battery charging and management, real-time clocks, power management, video, industrial input/output, accelerometers, amplifiers, A/D converters, D/A converters, beamformers, phased lock loop, gyroscopes, inertial measurement unit, input devices, networking, and universal serial bus.

Add Authentication Security to Automotive Endpoints Using the 1-Wire Interface

Sponsored by Analog Devices

By adding a single authentication IC, automotive designers can authenticate a component with only one signal between an ECU and endpoint component. This is particularly important as counterfeit and theft are increasingly problems in automotive applications. This application note describes how to implement the DS28E40 Deep Cover 1-Wire Authenticator in a system to provide authentication for optical cameras, headlamps, EV Batteries, occupancy sensors, and even steering wheels, and more.
