Software

The TS-4900 boots from the onboard Flash or microSD card to Linux, Android, QNX Neutrino RTOS, or Windows Embedded Compact operating systems via U-Boot bootloader. The TS-4900 comes standard with Yocto Linux distribution running the 3.10 kernel version, specially customized to take full advantage of the i.MX6 CPU 3D graphics acceleration capabilities, and boots to shell prompt in under 6 seconds. The TS-4900 is also supported in the mainline kernel image as of v4.9. Linux distribution support can be easily expanded to include Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Slackware, etc. Optionally, Ubuntu Core, Android, or QNX Neutrino RTOS can be preloaded out of the box, with Windows support coming soon.

The Yocto environment is a powerful, stable, and familiar software stack, including common Linux tools and interpreters. With Yocto we provide an x86/x86_64 cross toolchain which supports common onboard libraries and integrates with QT Creator, and Eclipse IDEs. Interpreted languages, like Python, Java, and C# (Mono), and more are easily available.
