The Linux microPlatform is an extensible software and hardware platform that makes it easier to develop, secure, and maintain Internet-connected Linux-based embedded devices.

The Linux microPlatform is based on OpenEmbedded / Yocto, and adds a select set of board support package layers to enable popular development boards.

Though the Linux kernel and software used for any on of the microPlatform builds may contain out-of-tree patches or features, a fundamental goal is to run as close to the tip, or latest software, as possible so that users of the Linux microPlatform can benefit from the latest changes.

The Linux microPlatform also provides reference applications as Docker containers to enable gateway functionality, such as IPv6/IPv4 routing and MQTT message brokering.
