Ubuntu certified on IoT hardware

ASUS IoT is a provider of embedded systems and AIoT hardware solutions. Notable among those is their PE100A device, an edge computer featuring an i.MX 8M scalable SoC processor for low power consumption.

The PE100A is the first NXP i.MX8 Canonical certification for Ubuntu Core 20 and Ubuntu Server 20.04.

Bringing IoT products to market involves a range of requirements, from embedded engineering to software update infrastructure and maintenance. As a result of the cooperation between ASUS IoT and Canonical, individual hardware I/O functions on the PE100A will conform to industrial-grade standards shortening the time to market for device manufacturers.

By collaborating with ASUS IoT, at Canonical we strive to deliver the most streamlined Linux experience, providing long-term security and reliability for embedded developers.
