The Linux Foundation will be announcing tomorrow that AMD and Mentor Graphics are partnering up with the embedded Yocto Linux project as advisory members.

I've been informed (and free to share now) that tomorrow the Linux Foundation will be announcing from the Embedded Linux Conference that AMD and Mentor Graphics have decided to join the Yocto Linux project in an advisory role.

The press release tomorrow will read, "The Yocto Project, a Linux Foundation Collaboration Project, today announced that AMD (NYSE: AMD) and Mentor Graphics Corporation are increasing their investments in the embedded Linux project. Both companies are becoming Gold-level members of the project and will sit on the Yocto Project Advisory Board. The Yocto Project reduces fragmentation in the embedded market by providing developers with greater consistency in the software and tools they’re using across multiple architectures for embedded Linux development. It is a collaborative, open source project that provides templates, tools and methods to help developers create custom, embedded, Linux-based systems, regardless of hardware architecture. AMD and Mentor Graphics will maximize their investments in the Yocto Project and deepen their commitment to the embedded Linux development community with this latest move. The two companies recently announced a multi-year partnership to deliver open source embedded Linux software tools for AMD Embedded processors that comprise multicore and heterogeneous systems targeting data storage and networking, industrial automation, Internet of Things (IoT) and visual applications."

Stay tuned for more news this week during the Embedded Linux Conference and the Android Builders Summit.
