Despite having some drawbacks compared with true real-time operating systems, Linux is now commonly used in embedded systems - particularly those requiring comprehensive networking and file storage capabilities. Its license free nature, coupled with the availability of a wide range of additional services and applications, makes it an attractive solution for many products.

LN Systems have a broad experience of using Linux in an embedded environment, covering all areas from kernel porting and driver development through to application programming, and generation of a complete development package including run-time environment and toolchain.
