Linaro Ltd, the open-source collaborative engineering organization developing software for the Arm ecosystem, has announced the joint collaboration with Huawei on OpenHarmony. Linaro will collaborate with Huawei and the open-source community on the engineering work needed to make OpenHarmony fully open-source.
OpenHarmony is an open-source operating system targeting the concept of distributed devices and shared pool of resources. The unified OS architecture is designed for multiple scenarios, allowing on-demand deployment for diversified devices, while adapting to different hardware resources and requirements for device functions.
Bringing the engineering aspect to Linaro allows the project to reach the wider open-source community, while also leveraging the extensive work Linaro and Huawei already collaborate on.
This work includes monthly GNU toolchain integration builds, advanced build and test automation technologies, six-year LTS Linux, RTOS and Trusted Firmware for Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers, and Yocto and OPTEE for Arm Cortex-A microprocessors.
At this year’s Linaro Connect 2021, Huawei will deliver a keynote on its vision for where this all leads: Building the Future of Pervasive, Collaborative Intelligence with Arm and Open Source.
