LinuxLink: software and technical support for Gumstix Overo COMs

LinuxLink from Timesys provides both a cloud-based and a desktop-based software framework for Linux-based product development, deployment and maintenance using Gumstix Overo COMs.

The LinuxLink FREE Edition is a cloud-based offering that engineers can use to build custom Linux BSPs/SDKs for evaluating their reference boards.

For full product development on your host/desktop and advanced customization capabilities, use the LinuxLink PRO Edition which includes un-metered technical support from Timesys.

The combination of LinuxLink and Gumstix Overo COMs can help a development team reduce the time and technical complexity of bringing their new products to market.

Timesys' free BSP, and their subscription-based offerings, support the following Gumstix Overo COMs:

Overo Earth/EarthSTORM COM

Overo Air/AirSTORM COM

Overo Water/WaterSTORM COM

Overo Fire/FireSTORM COM

Overo Iron/IronSTORM COM
