The PiBox Platform provides the core of PiBox Systems for PiBox Devices. The platform is a GNU Make build system that leverages Crosstool-NG, Buildroot/Busybox, the Linux kernel, custom bootloaders and firmware and installation tools to create a base system that can be installed to an SD card to boot a target device. The base system serves as a foundation on which opkg based PiBox Systems can be installed.
A PiBox System is a custom Linux distribution with a well-defined purpose. There are many such systems, including the PiBox Media System, the PiBox Player System, the PiSentry System, the PiStore System, Xeon for phones and Ironman for Home Automation. Each system is designed to operate on specific hardware – a PiBox Device.
PiBox Devices are the hardware components underlying a PiBox System. Many PiBox Systems are based on the Raspberry Pi family of SBCs. Xeon is designed for the PinePhone Pro, an RK3399 based open platform. Ironman encompasses both Raspberry Pi host nodes and Arduino based sensor nodes.
