Memfault Adds OTA Update for Embedded Linux

San Francisco, CA - June 21, 2022

San Francisco, CA – June 21, 2022 Memfault, the provider of the first cloud-based connected device observability platform, today announced its over-the-air (OTA) update capabilities are now available on Embedded Linux. Device developers building on Linux now have access to the Memfault platform for OTA management and hosting features such as cohorts, staged rollouts, full vs. delta releases, and a scalable global CDN. Memfault also added support for forced (non-interactive) updates, a critical feature for delivering security updates to embedded IoT devices.

Memfault’s embedded device diagnostics platform solves serviceability challenges via fleet observability, remote debugging and smart firmware over-the-air (OTA) management enabling support and product teams to have deep insights into embedded device performance in a cloud-based environment. Although Memfault works with WiFi-connected devices, Memfault doesn’t require direct nor high-speed internet connectivity and offers device developers maximum flexibility due to compatibility with virtually all connectivity protocols, including Bluetooth, Thread, LoRa, Particle, and Zigbee.

The full-featured Memfault platform is available for Android, ARM and ESP-based device developers, and today’s announcement of OTA updates availability is the first public release for Linux developers. Today’s product announcement follows a number of strategic partnerships for Memfault, including Nordic Semiconductors, NXP, Laird Connectivity, Silicon Labs, and Alif Semiconductor.

“Adding Linux features to our platforms realizes our mission to give developers maximum flexibility in building, improving, and updating connected devices at scale, no matter which chipset or operating systems they chose.” said François Baldassari, CEO of Memfault.

To learn more about Memfault’s Linux release, see the Memfault Linux OTA Integration Guide.

Memfault will be at Booth 4-638 in Hall 4 at Embedded World, June 21-23 at the Nuremberg Convention Center. To get started with Memfault, for free, on Android, ARM, and ESP-based devices, visit to register a free account. Linux users can contact Memfault at [email protected] to get started.
