When software developers try to apply Linux into their embedded products, they would be able to choose their base system from various distributions today, which could be divided into two kinds; binary based and source code based distributing.

Debian, one of the major binary based distributions, has stability and long-term support from its strong communities, which are essential stuff especially for civil infrastructure system. On the other hand, additional efforts for customizations and management of product releases are sometimes needed to cover various product requirements.

Kazuhiro will introduce approaches for applying Debian into embedded systems with Yocto Project build tools. In this talk, he will show some possibilities in combining Debian and benefits from Yocto Project, examples of customizations and resource managements, lessens learned from product developments thus far, and future plans for getting better affinity with Debian and other communities.
