Pengutronix at FrOSCon 2018

Marie Mann | | Event, Conference, RAUC, Etnaviv, labgrid, USB-SD-Mux

This year, a team from Pengutronix attended FrOSCon in St. Augustin for the first time. We took the opportunity to shake hands, talk about our latest developments and meet hackers interested in working with embedded Linux.

To show some of our work, we brought a demo for updating embedded devices with RAUC and hawkBIT and a Video Demo based on a fully open-source graphics stack with Etnaviv, Weston and GStreamer, cycling through four of the Blender Project's Open Movies in HD resolution.

Our hardware hacker had some fruitful discussions about electronic designs and possible use-cases for tools like our USB-SD-Mux, that makes the annoying juggling of SD cards between development host and target hardware a remnant of the past. When we started with that project, we would never have guessed that there was such a high demand for such a device, but from the large number of interested questions we gather that this is a niche that needs to be filled.

We also recognize that testing embedded devices is becoming an increasingly important and visible subject in the community. This motivates us to continue our efforts around this topic.

Besides that, our Penguin stickers and black pencils were popular as usual ;)

We'd like to thank FrOSCon Team for this great conference.
