Stay Up to Date With Minimal Maintenance

Frequent Updates and Long Term Support (LTS)

Torizon's frequent updates allow you to stay up to date, as Toradex does the heavy lifting of integrating the latest version and testing them. We provide a rolling update, tracking mainline Linux whenever possible and Long Term Support (LTS). Our Hardware is supported over the whole lifetime. Let us help integrate Torizon with your Tool Chain to enable continuous integration and delivery.

Built With the Yocto Project

Torizon OS is open-source and built with the Yocto Project. Torizon's goal is to simplify the setup and maintenance of an industrial-embedded Linux compared to Yocto Project. However, we also support use cases where further customization of the Torizon OS with the YoctoProject is necessary. Torizon OS is available with the Docker Runtime, or it's also possible to leave Docker away and still take advantage of the Update, Device Monitoring and Remote access capabilities.

  • Yocto Project Reference Images
  • With or Without Docker Software Contanierzation
  • Use your familiar Yocto Project Workflows for deep customizations

Extensive Software Container Ecosystem

Torizon uses Docker software containers, making it simple to add functionality to your system in a way that is both secure and easy to maintain. You can leverage a collection of ready-to-use Containers. Torizon supports hardware acceleration, machine learning, browsers, and graphical user interfaces in containers.

Reliable and Secure Remote and Offline Updates

Torizon OS tightly integrates an Update Solution. It can be used remotely (OTA) or offline to update a device securely and reliably with a USB Stick. Based on the Uptane Framework, it brings a ready-to-use automotive-grade technology stack protected from power cuts or unreliable connections; Torizon will keep your products going no matter the circumstances.

Simple and Secure Device Monitoring

Device Monitoring

When enabled, the integrated Device Monitoring provides insights into your device fleet. It lets you detect potential issues before they cause a problem for your customers. The device Monitoring can be easily customized and extended to fit your needs.

Remote Access

Remote Access

Torizon Remote Access is a flexible, secure and easy-to-use way to troubleshoot your products and support your customers anywhere. Remote Access is seamless integration for a Zero setup experience and built-in Security.
