The Embedded Kit is the All-in-One toolkit device-makers need to build, connect, test, and secure any custom embedded Linux system

With demand for custom Linux systems at an all-time high, Witekio, an international
embedded software company, has today announced the launch of The Embedded Kit, a
new spinoff brand which will focus solely on selling off-the-shelf Linux software tools.

The Embedded Kit product portfolio includes four software tools designed to build,
connect, test, and secure any custom embedded Linux system. Each tool is available
for purchase individually, or as a package, and will include the full source code.

As part of the launch event at SIDO Lyon, The Embedded Kit collaborated with
STMicroelectronics on the development of a new EV charging demonstration. The
demo aims to showcase the benefits of the BSP pre-integration options of the software,
now available on the STM32MP1 family of products.

Talking at the launch, Pierre Gal, Head of Product, The Embedded Kit, commented:
“Our software products have been designed specifically for device makers with the sole
aim of streamlining the entire process of embedded development and maintenance,

embedded Linux software, while providing full ownership.”

STMicroelectronics, added: “We’re delighted to have The Embedded Kit company as
new ST Authorized Partner with their new off-the-shelf tools available for the
STM32MP1 family of products. Our partnership with The Embedded Kit further
