Product and Image Assembly

This area contains the libraries that are used for implementing the in-tree and out-of-tree tools for Product and Image Assembly.

Image Assembly

Image Assembly is focused on the end of the build process: when all the compiled “things” are put together into the deliverable “images”:

  • core (or base) package (previously called system_image)
  • update package for OTA
  • Flashable artifacts like the fvm block image

Product Assembly

Product Assembly is a larger process, where pieces of the platform are selected and combined with pieces from the Product, to create the set of “things” to pass into Image Assembly.
