Yocto Project-Enabled AI Embedded Box PC
Why Choose the Yocto Project?
Embedded AI Applications with Yocto Project
Yocto Project vs. Standard Distribution
|Yocto Project Based Distribution||Standard Distribution|
|Compilation||Yocto Project fully relies on cross compiling.||Most Distribution based systems rely
on on-target compiling.
|Configuration and customization of single features||Each software package/feature is added only if needed via its own recipe and/or metalayer||Limited by the Distribution package provider|
|Configuration and customization|
of the full platform
|The overall system configuration is managed by recipes and/or metalayers which allow full configuration and customization of every detail||Difficult to remove features that are not needed but deeply integrated into the Distribution|
|Reproducibility||Very high with recipe configuration and version control||Missing or extremely expensive reproducibility|
|Patching||Limited custom patches, mostly upstreamed||Heavily patched and different by Distribution|
|Flexibility||Easy to port across platforms and different architectures||Limited to the list of supported platforms by the Distribution|
|FOSS license overview||Information provided by the output of a Yocto Project build||Need to be manually extracted for each software|
|Boot time||Fast, highly optimised for the specific system||Standard boot time, dealyed by components not necessarily used|
|RootFS size||Small, including only the packages and software needed by the specific system||Larger, with software components different by distrbution, of which many are not used|
