PHYTEC Update & Device management

Posted by Charbax – March 17, 2020

In this video Martin Schwan from PHYTEC Messtechnik Gmbh explains to you about the device management platform that is tailored to PHYTEC products, and how we provides a solution for the management and implementation of software updates, suitable for a large number of devices.
OTA field updates are a common requirement in modern embedded device deployments .We facilitate the roll-out of your software into the field by preparing the RAUC Robust Auto-Update Controller in all current BSPs. The update client ensures the reliable installation of signed BSP updates on the embedded systems and is supported by Yocto in the meta-rauc layer.
With the RAUC update framework, the first major component will make sure that your updates are installed safely and securely whereas the second component is a deployment server hawkBit that manages your update artifacts, controls roll-out strategies, gives feedback about device update states, etc.
PHYTEC supports you both in implementing the update mechanisms and in creating the appropriate infrastructure - from RAUC configuration and setting up cloud services to protecting the hardware from installing malicious software.
