Mentor Embedded Linux Lite for Broadcom Processors

Download Mentor Embedded Linux Lite for the Broadcom XLR and XLS family of multicore processors.

Software Details

A key advantage of Mentor Embedded Linux is continuity of workflow. One way to experience this is through the no-cost download called Mentor Embedded Linux Lite, a derivative of Mentor’s commercial Mentor Embedded Linux product.

Mentor Embedded Linux Lite is available now as a no-cost download. This is not trial or “timed-out” software, so you are free to use it as long as you wish.

How to Get Started

Here’s what you’ll need to get started building your Linux-based device on Broadcom processors. Mentor Embedded Linux Lite provides:

  • Eclipse support for Linux gdb
  • Eclipse support - Macraigor’s USB2Demon and/or Abatron
  • C/C++ Tool chain
  • Linux kernel for the XLR/XLS families of Broadcom processors tested and documented
  • All Broadcom applications tested and documented

To start your download, simply fill out the form and we’ll send you a confirmation email. Once you agree to the terms of use, you’ll be able to download Mentor Embedded Linux Lite and start building your Linux-based device on Broadcom processors.

Mentor Embedded Linux Lite provides a fast and efficient approach to developing embedded systems.

Versions Comparison

You may also want to consider the commercial version of Mentor Embedded Linux for Broadcom processors, offering developers a new approach to benefit from the vast world of open source software without the trade-offs associated with existing options.

Traditional commercial Linux vendors bind developers to a limited set of customization options preventing projects from fully adapting the commercial product to their project requirements. The “roll-your-own” Linux option introduces business risk by distracting development teams from their value-add contributions to the design.

With the commercial version of Mentor Embedded Linux, a new third option is now available to fully empower developers to create their own unique product platform with the commercial support of Mentor Embedded.

The commercial version includes Mentor Embedded System Builder, a system integration tool that assists the user in assembling a software platform and development environment that meets specific product requirements straight out of the box. System Builder is a powerful command line tool to create Linux distributions in an automated and reproducible environment. System Builder leverages the OpenEmbedded project to provide a polished build environment to cross-compile and package software for a target device.
