Overview for XPort Pro Linux Software Development Kit
A Highly Secure Linux Development Solution for Affordable Device Networking Connectivity
The XPort Pro Linux Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) is a highly-integrated embedded hardware and software suite that allows Linux developers to easily create value-added applications on Lantronix’ small yet powerful embedded networking module. Built on the stable 2.6 Linux kernel, the SDK includes all the components you require for building secure network enabled products using the Linux OS.
In addition to the proven XPort Pro secure networking module, the SDK provides a validated set of Linux-based applications, an extensive software library, a board support package (BSP) and device drivers which allow you to quickly create a custom tailored finished product. Included with standard GNU toolchains, you can easily integrate your applications using pre-defined configuration profiles and software assembly tools. Sample applications are also provided within the SDK allowing you to jump-start your application development and accelerate time-to-market.
With the XPort Pro Linux SDK, you can leverage the growing demand for Linux-based products without the usual hassle of doing all the groundwork.
(There are minimal dependencies on the host Linux distribution.)
