FoundriesFactory provides turn-key services to develop, secure, deploy and maintain your embedded, IoT or Edge product.



We are life long open source maintainers and contributors who are tired of fragmented embedded software. Rather than complaining about the state of the union, we created an open platform which implements standards throughout. The goal being to enable product developers to build upon a common software base, and provide tooling to accelerate time to market.

Leverage our team's decades of experience shipping embedded products by starting your next project in a FoundriesFactory.

  • Secure

    Reference implementations for securing software using hardware root of trust

  • Custom

Build on top of the Linux microPlatform using our infrastructure to manage the development, testing, deployment and maintenance of your next product.


Linux microPlatform

Designed to be a securable platform using open source software from a unified source tree. We avoid fragmentation and lock-in by using industry standards.


Partnerships that power the future

Our partner ecosystem allows you to easily consume 3rd party solutions through your FoundriesFactory. This provides you with the building blocks for connected devices - from industrial sensors to autonomous vehicles.


What is the vision?

Our vision is to deliver an open, customizable, secure OS and firmware platform for an IoT/Edge product’s lifetime. We aim for cross-industry adoption, with no lock-in. We use industry standards and a new business model to disrupt the status quo of the fragmented IoT device market.

What are’s products?

Foundries maintains two free open source microPlatform distributions - one for SoCs running Linux, and one for microcontrollers using the Zephyr RTOS. The commercial FoundriesFactory cloud service enables customers to tailor Linux to their own hardware, IP and use case, and to securely deploy and maintain software for their IoT and Edge devices over their product lifetimes.

What is the business model?

FoundriesFactory has an annual subscription business model, priced per product. There are no per unit royalties, per transaction or per update fees. For start-ups and small companies we offer a 50% discount for the FoundriesFactory for the first two years. You may stop your subscription at any time and will retain all the source code for your product up to that time with no lock-in.

What hardware do you support?

FoundriesFactory supports any hardware that can run Linux. It is specifically designed to enable customization to your own hardware and use case. For getting started we support a range of standard development boards for Arm, Intel and RISC-V. FoundriesFactory is designed to give maximum flexibility to OEMs to define their unique needs.
