The Yocto Project is a collaborative open source project that provides prototypes, tools and methods that let you create personalized Linux-based systems for embedded products independent from the hardware architecture. The project was born in 2010 as a partnership of many different hardware manufacturers, open-source operative systems providers and electronic companies, to bring some order to the chaos that was the development of Linux Embedded. Why use Project Yocto? Because it's a development environment for Linux embedded complete with tools, meta-data and documentation - everything that one needs. The free of charge tools that Yocto makes available are powerful and easy to generate (included emulation environments, debuggers, a tool-kit to generate applications and others) and they let you create and continue projects, without causing you a loss of optimizations and investments made in the prototyping phase. Project Yocto supports the adoption of this technology by the open-source community letting users concentrate on the characteristics and development of their product.
