Linaro is member driven. Member engineers work with Linaro engineers to solve common software problems. Why?
No need to differentiate on the basics
Because collaborating on common software allows participating member companies to direct more resources towards differentiating their products. In effect, collaborating on non-differentiation allows you to focus more on differentiation.
Faster problem solving = accelerated time to market
Having engineers from all the member companies work together with Linaro engineers - many of which are world-reknown Arm software experts - means more eyes on the problem. The more people who look at the problem, the quicker it gets solved and the better the solution. And the quicker the basics are resolved, the faster you get your product to market.
Arm & Open Source Software Expertise
Linaro is the collaboration platform for Arm software, formed in 2010 for this very purpose. We contribute to over 70 open source projects, many of which we maintain. If you want a say in how Arm software evolves and want to work with leading technology companies to develop and implement actual engineering solutions, Linaro membership is for you.
There are three types of membership - Core, Club and Group - each offering a different level of engagement. To read the complete membership rules, click here
Core members drive the direction of software development in the Arm ecosystem. They can participate in any of Linaro’s projects or segment groups and have access to their own dedicated engineering team.
Club members influence the direction of Arm software development and can participate in any of Linaro’s segment groups. At an additional fee, they can also have access to their own dedicated engineering team and participate in additional Linaro projects.
Group members drive strategy within a specific vertical and can participate in any of the Linaro projects set up by their segment group. Linaro manages the following groups: Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Vehicles, Consumer, Datacenter & Cloud, Edge & Fog Computing, IoT & Embedded and HPC.
