We are excited to announce our collaboration with Mender to facilitate over-the-air (OTA) software updates in connected Linux devices (IoT). The partnership allows iWave to provide our customers with a robust and secure over-the-air update solution, without causing any disturbance to the device’s existing codebase. This assures consistent performance of the devices as they are updated timely with new features and security upgrades that add value and differentiate the product from competitors. Mender manages all the security nuances required for the update process, allowing customers to focus on their core competency without having to worry about security concerns.
iWave has integrated Mender OTA client to our latest i.MX 8 based custom automotive platform with fine-graded customization. Along with Mender, iWave provided end-to-end over-the-air update solutions, including custom API calls, boot loader update, custom partition layout, add-on security, peripheral update support, and more. Taking into account the immense potential of over-the-air updates, iWave has planned to enable Mender OTA onto our OBD II solution, HMI , and other iWave platforms that supports the Yocto Project or other embedded Linux distributions.
