Technical Information

is the Linux based run-time component from IMG's Build-A-Board. It is made available as a separate purchasable product for certain customers that prefer the license per unit, rather than the platform licensing available within Build-A-Board.

The actual code-base for the run-time targets is a combination of target specific code, shared core keyboard software code, and shared lower-level abstracted operating system API code. Because the foundation was designed to be cross-platform, and extensible, the ability to run the same keyboard layout (Data) on multiple run-time targets (Programs) is the expected operation. Due to constantly changing releases and differences in support for various interfaces, most Linux customers have some level of interaction with IMG staff due to the varied nature of their needs and customization capabilities available in the open source world.
