Conference explores Linux for high performance embedded systems


This year's UK Device Developers' Conference will include a half-day technical workshop titled "Developing and Debugging Linux for High Performance Embedded Systems".


Presented by an industry expert Richard Copeman of Lauterbach, the workshop will explore how to approach a Linux project from the perspective of the development environment and debug tools 

"Linux has become an important Operating System of choice for many embedded system platforms," said Richard Blackburn, Conference Manager. "Access to source code, driver availability and a wide community of fellow developers has established Linux as an attractive option for a wide range of projects. This workshop is geared towards developers that are using Linux for projects where reliability and performance are important factors."

The UK Device Developers' Conference is a one-day conference for engineers and computer scientists involved in the development of intelligent systems and devices. It is an event that explores the very latest tools and technologies available and includes a vendor exhibition, half-day technical workshops and a series of informative technical presentations. 

“The workshop attendees will be guided through advanced JTAG debugging techniques on a quad core Cortex-A9 Linux target,” said Richard Copeman, Lauterbach UK. “They will also use task aware debugging and debugging of shared code and kernel drivers. The workshop will include an explanation of how to build a kernel which can be debugged via JTAG and will show how post mortem debugging can be undertaken to help diagnose the causes of a crash.”

German based Lauterbach is a world leader in debugging tools. Recognised for both engineering excellence and exceptional technical support, Lauterbach tools have become a favourite with many hi-tech engineers. Lauterbach tools support all the major families of embedded processor cores, covering products from 75 silicon companies.

The Device Developers’ Conference is to take place in Reading, Cambridge, Warrington and Uphall (Scotland) during May and June 2015.  The Conference, including the technical presentations, is free to engineers and technical project managers. A small charge is made for places on the half-day technical workshops.
