Developer’s Platform

Why Linux?

Every IT specialist knows what Linux has to offer for servers. More and more often, thanks to the power of energy-saving processors, this system becomes the ideal platform for embedded systems and all kinds of drivers.

The Linux system is distinguished by:

  • world standards, stability, and unlimited capabilities of platform development
  • enormous program and tool bases available free of charge, along with source code
  • access to a whole knowledge base, documentation, guides at various levels of proficiency, hundreds of thousands of specialists worldwide
  • Application Base

    NPE operates while using the Linux system, therefore it has access to an enormous application base. Some of them are already precompiled and supplied to the client along with the device.

    Selected application examples:

  • www server: apache, jetty
  • databases: sqlLite, postgreSql
  • Programming languages: C/C++, Java, Php
  • Services: telnet, ftp, ssh and many others

  • Apart from the solutions already available, the application base dedicated to NPE is constantly expanding, for example: text message server / gate, serial port converter, SNMP server, Modbus. If you want to learn about the current list of available applications, please contact us.

    Tools and NPE SDK

    Also supplied with the NPE are: documentation, libraries and tools allowing the usage of built-in NPE resources such as: the GSM modem or the digital and analog input/output.
