Showcase: Embedded off-the-shelf
A firmware upgrade is due. A newly implemented feature needs to be rolled out, a security issue patched or new hardware support added. The software, while capable, is complex. Pengutronix' strategy to handle this complexity is working on a version- controlled Board Support Package (BSP) with continuous updates and tests on the latest mainline Linux kernel.
Pengutronix at ESE Kongress
The Embedded Software Engineering Kongress is also taking place online this year and we would like to take the opportunity of easy participation to watch the lectures, join in the discussions and get into conversation.
15 Years of i.MX in Mainline Linux
Today it has been 15 years since we mainlined support for Freescale/NXP's i.MX architecture in the Linux kernel! That was one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for (industrial Linux users') mankind :-) Here is some background about why it happened and what you might want to learn from history for your next embedded Linux project.
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.
First i.MX 8M Patches posted for Mainline
Eight days after NXP announced the immediate availability of the i.MX 8M processor family, Pengutronix developer Lucas Stach today posted a first set of 11 patches to support i.MX 8M in the mainline kernel (linux-gpio, linux-clk, linux-arm-kernel and linux-netdev).
Talk: Long Term Maintenance at Embedded Recpies (Paris)
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).
ELC Europe 2016, Berlin
At the ELC Europe 2016 in Berlin our colleagues Jan Lübbe and Marc Kleine-Budde are talking about two interesting and important presentations about Kernel longterm maintenance strategies and verified boot.
Pengutronix' Activities in Linux 3.13
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:
