iSET Porting Services
The engineering group at Century Embedded Technologies offers a full
range of software porting services that will help turn your set-top
box prototype into a fully-functional system - ready to distribute and
One or more of the following services may be used to accelerate your
set-top box design and shorten your time-to-market.

Operating System Port
The first step in porting the iSET set-top box suite onto your hardware
platform is the selection of a Linux distribution. Our engineering staff
has the experience and background to properly optimize and install your
choice of Linux onto the set-top box platform. When this step is
completed, your set-top box platform will have a complete Linux
operating system securely installed and booting from hard disk, ROM, or
iSET Software Suite Port
Once the set-top box system is running Linux, various iSET components
are selected that support the hardware found in the design. The selections
are analyzed by our engineering group and updates are made to device
drivers, video middleware, and other low-level support modules.
Each software component is then ported to the set-top box platform and
numerous quality control checks are implemented to assure the resulting
software suite is tightly integrated and each component works well with
all other modules.
Custom Application Design
Once the basic set-top box functionality has been added to the design,
any custom applications will be created and merged into the software
suite. In most cases, all required modules and components will already
be available in the iSET software suite. However, unique vendor or
end-user requirements may drive the need for additional development.
When required, our engineering group can specify, design, develop, test,
and integrate new applications into the iSET software suite or any
existing application set.
