Success Story: Linux / Android Fast Boot



A Japanese Tier 1 infotainment supplier was using a commercial quick boot solution in their entry-level infotainment system, but failed to meet Toyota startup timing requirements.



  • Replaced the commercial quickboot with open source Linux hibernation module.
  • Optimized Linux startup performance based on Cogent know-how.
  • Supported Tier 1 in convincing Toyota that further boot time reduction was technically not feasible.



  • All critical resources start in less than 2 sec
  • Toyota approved and launched system
  • Project completed within estimate of $300k
  • Tier 1 is saving approximately $1m per year in license fees
