About is dedicated to bringing you timely news and analysis on the hardware, software, protocols, and standards used in embedded, mobile, and Internet of Things devices that are built around open source OSes such as Linux and its derivatives (e.g. Android, Tizen, OpenWRT, Brillo, etc.). We also provide coverage of new and innovative products that exemplify the use of these technologies.

LinuxGizmos is notable for its comprehensive, detailed, and insightful coverage of the latest embedded-oriented single board computers (SBCs), computer-on-modules (COMs), system-on-chips (SoCs), and software platforms aimed at embedded, mobile, and IoT applications in both consumer and industrial markets. The site’s target audience includes professional developers, makers, students and educators, early adopters, product strategists, and technical decision makers.

LinuxGizmos is also pleased to host the LinuxDevices Archive, which contains nearly 15,000 news items and articles previously published by and spanning a dozen years of early embedded Linux history. This precious asset became available in December 2013 by virtue of a generous donation to the Linux community from Quinstreet Inc. contributors
