Torizon 5.0.0

Introduction

Torizon, a software platform that uses containers as a key technology, has container images that serve different purposes.

Some of them are provided by Toradex:

  • Torizon Debian Containers: containers that are meant to be run directly on the target hardware - the Computer on Module. You use them as a base to create your own containers, with your own application and its dependencies.
  • Development Containers: development containers to assist the development. They may be meant to run on the target device, the host PC, or both.
  • SDK Containers: Toradex provides SDK containers to work with IDEs. You will most likely use our IDE extensions and those containers will work under the hood. It means that the IDE abstracts their use, and you are given a development experience as close as possible to developing for a native platform.

Other containers are provided by third parties:

  • Partner Demo Containers: containers provided by Toradex partners specifically for the Torizon platform.
  • Third-party Containers: containers available from other sources, not necessarily related to Toradex but still useful and potentially ready-to-run on Torizon.

This article lists containers and points to additional resources.

SDK Containers

Toradex provides SDK containers to work with IDEs:

Partner Demo Containers

To leverage the flexibility of the Torizon platform, Toradex partners with software companies from different industry segments and technologies to offer you Partner Demo Containers. Those containers are ready-to-run demonstrations with out-of-the-box compatibility to both Toradex hardware and the Torizon platform.

Third-party Containers

Those images are available on public registries, such as Docker Hub. They are maintained by third parties that are not related to Toradex. They are listed here because at some point in time we have tested them on Torizon and documented it, thus you know that they are good candidates for you to use.
