The Debian based open-source Linux distribution Ubuntu finds its wide use across Desktop, Servers, Containers and now in IoT and cloud applications. Being very secure and its OpenStack support, it is further getting adapted widely in high end embedded computing applications as well.
iWave systems rich i.MX8 System on Module and SBC product portfolio is supported with Yocto Linux, Android and QNX BSP. Now iWave Systems is enabling the Bionic Beaver Ubuntu 18.04 LTS support to its latest i.MX8 Quad Max, Quad Plus and i.MX8M, i.MX8M mini system on Modules and SBC products.
