Open Source Firmware Conference 2018

At September 12-15 the first conference focusing exclusively on open source firmware took place in Erlangen, Germany - the OSFC 2018. The mission of this conference is to provide an appropriate platform to bring together as many Open Source projects, hardware manufacturers and developers as possible, in order to collaborate, share knowledge and push the firmware development in an Open Source manner.


Fixing ICECC, our Workhorse for Building BSPs

Lucas Stach | | Infrastructure

While developing operating system infrastructure for industrial devices for our customers, we build lots of embedded Linux board support packages, kernels, bootloaders etc. at Pengutronix. Although ICECC should be a good tool to distribute the computing power to a cluster of machines, it recently turned out that things are not that simple.


What Kernel Should I Use (Embedded Edition)

Some days ago, Greg Kroah-Hartmann wrote a great blogpost about Which Stable Kernel One Should Use?. I fully agree with his position; however, I'd like to make some additions for the industry device manufacturer use case and some common pitfalls and misunderstandings we see in that area.

Pengutronix TechWeek 2018: Cortex-M Coprocessor and MIPS

Several i.MX SoC versions, for example i.MX7D, i.MX6SX and the i.MX8 derivates are asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) systems: They have at least one ARM Cortex A core and at least one ARM Cortex M core.


Pengutronix TechWeek 2018: NIR for Etnaviv

Once in a year, mostly during springtime, no phone call is answered at Pengutronix, no customer Mail receives a reply, no BSP is built and no coffee machine gargles. But, no fear, this is not the end! It is just the time for something new! New ideas, focused development on new world domination plans and time to think outside the box. Yes, it's again the time for the Pengutronix TechWeek!
