Founded in 1984 by the Patton brothers, Patton Electronics has grown into a company of over 170 people with a product line of over 300 items.
Patton's product line includes various CPU architectures and operating systems. Patton approached The PTR Group to help move them to a common embedded Linux baseline for their product platforms.
Linux Baseline and Build System
The PTR Group created an Integrated Build System for Patton that allows Patton's engineers to easily build embedded Linux software for their products. This frees them to spend more time on their product IP. Patton can now bring a product to market and meet customer demands faster than ever before.
Patton is also using The PTR Group's engineering expertise to create device drivers, target bootloaders, test software, and in systems design consulting services.
