Clang is rapidly developing into a viable static compiler for Embedded Linux ecosystem. As Clang gets support for more and more architectures, it is becoming a very interesting alternative for opensource static compilers on Embedded Linux. The modern design of LLVM and Clang infrastructure enables rapid prototying and tool development on top of LLVM, which is unfolding a lot of sophisticated tools in Clang suite e.g. Clang-tidy, pp-trace, Address and memory sanitizers, static analysis tools and so on. This talk will explain the Clang/LLVM tools in details and its usecases and advantages in Embedded Linux. Above all it will introduce Clang as C/C++ cross-compiler for embedded Linux Development and its integration with Yocto project and how it can be used with Yocto Project's Extended SDK. It will also cover the strong points and differences of Clang code generations vis-a-vis GCC
