PIL makes it possible for us to keep our customer’s Linux products secure and quality assured for 10+ years. Through extensive use of continuous integration, automated embedded testing and a big load of regression tests, we can maintain PIL on a large number of custom hardware – from low-power ARM MCUs to high-performance x86 and FPGA computing boards.
