The next Embedded Linux Conference Europe will take place from October 11 to October 13 in Berlin, Germany. As usual, the entire Free Electrons engineering team will participate, which means this time 10 participants from Free Electrons!
The schedule for the conference has been published recently, and a number of our talk proposals have been accepted, so we will present on the following topics:
- Our engineers Antoine Ténart and Quentin Schulz will be giving a talk about Building a Boards Farm: Continuous Integration and Remote Control, in which they will describe the work they have done at Free Electrons to build an automated test environment for ARM platforms, and how it is used for KernelCI.org contribution, and for remote development.
- Maxime Ripard, co-maintainer of the Allwinner processor support in the Linux kernel, will discuss how he added Support for the Camera Interface on the C.H.I.P platform. This talk will walk through the v4l2 stack, the architecture of a v4l2 driver and the interaction between the SoC driver and its camera’s.
- Alexandre Belloni, co-maintainer of the kernel RTC subsystem and the Atmel processor support, will present ASoC: Supporting Audio on an Embedded Board, sharing his experience getting audio to work on a number of ARM hardware platforms.
- Boris Brezillon, Free Electrons engineer and maintainer of the Linux kernel NAND subsystem, will be co-presenting with Richard Weinberger (from sigma star gmbh, and also co-maintainer of the UBI/UBIFS subsystems in the kernel) a talk on Running UBI/UBIFS on MLC NAND. Richard and Boris will present they have been doing over the last year to make UBI/UBIFS and generally the Linux MTD/NAND stack compatible with the constraints of MLC NANDs.
- Thomas Petazzoni, core developer of Buildroot, will give a talk on the Anatomy of a cross-compilation toolchain.
- Boris Brezillon (again!) will also give a talk on Modernizing the NAND Framework: The Big Picture, in which he will describe his roadmap for the NAND subsystem, and gather input from the audience as to what needs to be improved in this subsystem.
- Gregory Clement, co-maintainer of Linux kernel support for some Marvell SoCs, will present a talk called ARM64 SoC Linux Support Check-List, covering everything you need to know to add support for a new ARM64 System-on-Chip.
Like every year, we’re looking forward to attending this conference, and meeting all the nice folks of the Embedded Linux community!
