OpenEmbedded is a framework for embedded devices that allows you to quickly obtain a modular, extensible and lightweight GNU/Linux base system.

The talk will deal with how starting from this first system, adaptation operations have been carried out for the Tegra board used to satisfy the requirements of the created Qt application: we have gone from the recognition of the various hardware parts by the kernel to the optimization of the necessary components for the main software.

The various problems arising during this process and the solutions adopted to obtain a device that complies with the regulations in force concerning biomedical devices will be addressed.
