The Linux operating system is widely used across the computing landscape. It is therefore natural to plan Linux support when new technology is developed. However, this doesn't come without its set of challenges, both technical and cultural. The MIPI I3C HCI℠ architecture also comes with its own peculiarities and multiple specification revisions. This presentation covers the work that has been done to date in the context of those challenges, with a quick overview of future development.
