LinuxCon 2010: Linux on Real-Time Embedded Systems: Tips and Tools

6:00pm, Tuesday, September 1st
Location: Ballroom 2
Topic: Embedded

By supporting many hardware architectures and reducing the time-to-market, Linux became a frequently choice of operating system to embedded telecommunication devices. However, the vanilla Linux kernel is a soft real-time operating system and needs some patchs, tools an techniques to makes possible your utilization on systems with firm real-time requirements. This presentation shows some tips and tools, collected during the development of embedded telecommunication devices, that transform the vanilla Linux on a operating system able to meet the firm real-time requirements of telecommunications devices, even on small embedded systems. The target audience of this presentation is developers of embedded, real-time and telecommunication systems. It is desired an intermediate knowledge on hardware architecture and solid knowledge in operating systems (IRQ Handling, Scheduling, Real Time).
