Frequently Asked Questions

Our vision is to be the OS of everyThing. We have built a secure, open source platform for the world's connected devices, and a cloud service to configure this to any hardware and any cloud.

Our customers pay a fixed subscription per project or per company with no per unit fees and unlimited fair usage of our build, test, deployment and update infrastructure. This dramatically reduces engineering and maintenance costs and enables our customers to focus on their own IP and value-creation.

A cloud service to develop, CI/test, deploy and maintain secure, OTA updatable IoT and Edge products. It comprises secure firmware, Linux operating system, device and fleet services, private and public cloud interfaces, and lifetime software maintenance updates.

We lead the industry in providing a complete solution for the IoT and Edge product lifecycle. Every customer product leverages the open source Linux microPlatform combined with customer IP, enabling us to build a lasting platform that can be used in billions of globally connected devices.

The Foundries.io Linux microPlatform (LmP) is an OS for IoT and Edge devices, designed using best industry practices for security and OTA updates. FoundriesFactory is a cloud service that enables you to rapidly build, deploy and maintain secure, connected products incorporating your own IP and applications, reducing time to market and engineering costs.

We support any hardware that can run the Linux operating system. To get you started we support a range of standard development boards for Arm, Intel and RISC-V SoCs. FoundriesFactory is designed to give you maximum flexibility to configure to your own hardware, add your own IP and meet your customer needs.

Production devices use secure boot with root of trust and attestation, PKI with signed certificates and rotatable keys, operating system features, and best industry practices to ensure end product and fleet security.
