ADVANS Group Presents the ADVANS Linux Embassy
ADVANS Group, the parent company of ELSYS Design, has decided to develop a center of expertise in Linux systems for the embedded world by creating the ALE team (ADVANS Linux Embassy).
However, it appears that this operating system is complex, developed in an unconventional way by a very active community and that, while it is relatively easy to develop a knowledge of development at the level of the user space, knowledge of the mechanisms of kernel and driver development for this operating system requires very specific skills that many companies have trouble to find.
With this in mind, as well as with the desire to bring even more value to its customers, the ADVANS Group has decided to develop a center of expertise in Linux systems for the embedded world by creating the ALE team (ADVANS Linux Embassy).
ABOUT THE ADVANS LINUX EMBASSY
The ALE team is made up of passionate experts working inside the ADVANS Group design centers. Its missions are both internal and external: centralize and develop the ADVANS Group skills on Linux, contribute to the Linux community and assist the ADVANS Group customers.
Placed under the responsibility of the technical department, the ALE team is fully integrated into the ADVANS Group’s global offering. It has the capacity to assist customers not only in design/development but also in support/expertise/training.
According to Philippe Bourgault, the ELSYS Design technical director:
“Thanks to the ALE team, the ADVANS Group is able to offer strong expertise on Linux. However, mastering the embedded software also requires the ability to address topics related to hardware/software interfaces, processor architectures, network protocols, real-time management, the operation of applications, cybersecurity, and many other topics.
The ADVANS Group’s expertise covers the entire development of digital systems and solutions and thus covers all key topics.”
