Linaro now has a total of 25 member companies working together to accelerate open source software development for the ARM architecture.
As the ARM architecture advances rapidly with the delivery of 64-bit low power processor cores, the benefits to be gained from collaboration on common open source software across the industry increase. Linaro's goals are to enable more rapid innovation in the industry through using shared resources to engineer common software elements, enabling each member to focus more of their own resources on product differentiation.
QuIC is a wholly owned subsidiary of
The major difference between Linaro and other collaborative open source organizations is that Linaro focuses on engineering and implementation rather than the agreement on and definition of standards. Linaro and QuIC expect to derive mutual benefit from working together through a shared focus on open source software.
'We are very pleased to welcome
Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of open source on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 200 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including developer tools, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, and other software infrastructure. Linaro is distribution neutral: it wants to provide the best software foundations to everyone by working upstream, and to reduce non-differentiating and costly low level fragmentation. The effectiveness of the Linaro approach has been demonstrated by Linaro's growing membership, and by Linaro consistently being listed as one of the top three company contributors to recent Linux kernels (LWN lists Linaro as the number 2 company contributor to kernels 3.12 and 3.13 and #3 to kernels 3.10 and 3.11: http://lwn.net/Articles/579081/, http://lwn.net/Articles/570483/, http://lwn.net/Articles/563977/, http://lwn.net/Articles/555968/.).
To ensure commercial quality software, Linaro's work includes comprehensive test and validation on member hardware platforms. The full scope of Linaro's engineering work is open to all online.
