This is my report from the first day of Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E) 2017 in Prague.


All Systems Go 2017: Updating Embedded Systems

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

At the All Systems Go conference in Berlin, Michael Obrich reported at 2017-10-22 about "Updating Embedded Systems - Putting it all together", based on the experiences of the Pengutronix integration team.


Talk at All Systems Go 2017 Conference

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

Before the ELC-E conference starts in Prague, Berlin hosts the All Systems Go conference, the successor of the systemd conference. In times of increasing IT security incidents with IoT devices, updating such systems in a secure and reliable way becomes more and more important. Michael Olbrich's talk outlines the challenges and possible solutions for a robust update process.


Pengutronix Talks at ELC-E in Prague

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

The autumn conference highlight is the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E), which takes place in Prague this year. The Pengutronix team will be present with four talks and two demo points / showcases, presenting current open source projects (RAUC, labgrid, etnaviv).


Talk: Long Term Maintenance at Embedded Recpies (Paris)

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk, Mainline Linux

While the technical side of building embedded Linux systems is mostly solved, running such systems connected to the internet over a long time has its own challenges. At the Embedded Recipes Conference in Paris, Marc Kleine-Budde will talk about establishing a sustinable workflow for this usecase tomorrow (2017-09-26).


DistroKit - A Playground BSP for PTXdist

Robert Schwebel | | PTXdist, DistroKit

At Pengutronix we are using PTXdist to automatically integrate many industrial embedded Linux projects. Some time ago I started DistroKit: This example BSP shall be able to demonstrate PTXdist features.


OSADL Networking Day 2017

Robert Schwebel | | OSADL, RAUC

In the last talk before lunch, my colleague Enrico Jörns talked about the RAUC (Robust Auto Update Controller) framework.


RAUC v0.1.1 released

Robert Schwebel | | rauc

RAUC is making progress, and my colleagues Enrico Jörns and Jan Lübbe finally pushed out a new release today that reflects what happened during the last months. Updating embedded linux systems in the field in a secure and robust way becomes more and more important; we had many interesting talks with our customers during the last time, and some of the new ideas are already finding their way into the codebase. However, there is still a lot of work ahead, and if you have more ideas, either drop us a note on the community channels, send patches or github pull requests, or ask for commercial help!


labgrid: Test Automation Framework Released

Robert Schwebel | | labgrid

At Pengutronix, one of the most important tasks in our industrial linux projects is testing of embedded systems. While testing is easy on the component level (there are many unit test frameworks around), it is increasingly difficult on system level. Tests do not only run code and compare results, they need to bring the device-under-test into different states (i.e. "bootloader", "linux console", "power off"). If you have many embedded Linux devices, remote-controlling power, serial consoles, network, switches, reset lines, SD cards in scalable, automatic labs is also on the wishlist.


Chemnitz Linux Days 2017

Robert Schwebel | | Conference, Event, CLT, Etnaviv, RAUC, labgrid

In the first talk today, Michael Tretter reports about the current state of Open Source Graphics for Embedded Systems. For regular observers, it's probably not surprising that the focus will be on i.MX6, Etnaviv and the IPU.


Pengutronix Contributions to v4.10

Robert Schwebel | | Kernel

Here is a short report about Pengutronix' contributions to the 4.10 kernel. It mainly contains more improvements for the i.MX6 graphics and video subsystem, Etnaviv, Marvell Orion and Altera SoCFPGA.


ELC Europe 2016, Berlin

At the ELC Europe 2016 in Berlin our colleagues Jan Lübbe and Mark Kleine-Budde are talking about two interesting and important presentations about Kernel longterm maintenance strategies and verified boot.


Free Linux BSP for ARM/x86 Emulated Platforms

Robert Schwebel | | PTXdist

Hildesheim, Germany - Pengutronix offers a new release of its free Board Support Package for generic and emulated platforms. It provides all required components to get everything run in a QEMU environment, and is dedicated for beginners in the embedded world. And for the experienced user it can act as a quick start for her/his own development as well.


Pengutronix Techweek 2014

Robert Schwebel | | Events

During week 25/2016 (2016-06-16 to 2016-06-20) the Pengutronix team is out-of-office, due to the yearly internal TechWeek event. During that time, our availability in the Hildesheim office is reduced and we can only be contacted by e-Mail.


Barebox-2014.03.0

Robert Schwebel | | barebox

The Barebox project has released version 2014.03.0 of its bootloader:


Pengutronix' Activities in Linux 3.13

Robert Schwebel | | Mainline Kernel

During our embedded linux projects, the kernel engineers at Pengutronix do a lot of improvements which end up in the mainline kernel. Here's a short story about what went into the recently released 3.13:
