IGL is a proven commercial Linux distribution (Debian), which offers all conveniences and advantages of a commercial distribution and on the other hand brings all features of an optimized solution for the industrial (embedded) area.
These include primarily:
IGL combines the stability of an enterprise distribution with the flexibility that has always been needed in the embedded environment. Thanks to the build system ELBE (Embedded Linux Build Environment) a customer specific Debian based distribution can now be created just as comfortable and reproducible. This can be used as a basis for all further developments at the customer.
IGL includes a long-lived (LTS) kernel, realtime capability (Preempt-RT), the RFS and the associated proven, robust toolchain.
IGL hooks in the RFS read only, taking the security of the system to a new level.
IGL receives regular security and product updates, so that the distribution is always up to date. This makes IGL the perfect choice for use in security-critical areas, and not only there.
IGL supports secure, atomic updates in the field, supporting both redundant technologies and an Android-like approach. Both, complete images can be transferred and a robust incremental update with bandwidth optimized packet sizes can be used.
Additionally, there are other optional packages to get a precisely customized solution. The packages include:
