About is dedicated to publishing timely news and analysis on the hardware, software, protocols, and standards used in new and innovative embedded, mobile, and Internet of Things devices. As our name implies, LinuxGizmos content features a unique emphasis on open-source high level OSes, such as Linux and its derivatives (e.g. Android, Tizen, OpenWRT, Brillo, etc.), plus microcontroller oriented RTOSes like FreeRTOS.

LinuxGizmos is particularly noteworthy for its comprehensive and insightful coverage of newly introduced, embedded-oriented single board computers (SBCs), computer-on-modules (COMs), system-on-chips (SoCs), and small form factor (SFF) systems, along with the software platforms that make them tick. Our target demographic includes professional developers, makers, students and educators, early adopters, product strategists, and technical decision makers with a keen interest in these technologies.

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
