NEXUS UNITY OS
The NEXUS UNITY operating system is a (soft)
derivative of Debian 11
It contains the same software as the source code, but is tested and verified for compatibility before being released to the public/stable branch.
We maintain our additional software in a separate repository to keep the structure clean and understandable.
The source code for our software can be found on Github.
Excellent hardware support
We ensure that our hardware is extensively supported by our software at all levels:
- Firmware update support for all modules/devices.
- Advanced Linux kernel build that includes
all necessary drivers and performance
- Includes stable driver backports from latest kernel.org Linux
- User-space drivers, frameworks and services with support for all hardware features
Supports automated deployment and management
Our products are designed to be installed and configured in a fully automated manner, this includes the ability to mass deploy and maintain.
Our products are designed for sustainability
and many years of use, so we support them with
updates and upgrades as long as they are
End-of-life is not planned.
Thanks to our open source strategy, support independent of us is also possible.
Support for alternative software
Unlike other vendors, we do not lock our platform, including our firmware, against alternative software.
You can typically boot other Raspberry Pi CM3 compatible Linux distributions (Ubuntu, CentOS, Arch…) out-of-the-box on our hardware.
The firmware on our microcontrollers can be easily exchanged via bootloader or directly via the SWD interface.
Our APIs are open and well documented.
When selecting components for our platform, we prefer durable, maintainable, well documented and open products.
Automated test system
To ensure comprehensive quality, we focus
intensively on continuous integration and fully
automated testing for all our products.
This includes intensive testing of hardware functions for most modules.
