Open seats in January Android training session

We still have some open seats into our end-of-January training session on Android development!

In this training, you will get familiar with compiling and booting Android. You will also learn how to adapt it to support a new embedded board. You will build a complete system, see how to access specific hardware components, customize the file-system and use efficient debug techniques. You will also understand the Android software architecture and learn how to use the HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layers) to develop efficient and integrated applications. The training is split evenly between lectures and practical labs on an ARM embedded platform.

Training dates: 27 to 31 January 2014

Location: Sophia-Antipolis

Patrick Titiano presents Power Management Methodology at Embedded Linux Conference

Patrick has shared the following presentation at the Embedded Linux Conference in Edinburgh.

Here is an outline:

Wireless Embedded platforms performances keep increasing (multi-core processors (MPU / GPU) up to 2GHz+, H/W accelerators, High-Speed RAM (LPDDR3, Wide I/O) & peripheral buses (USB3)). But power and thermal budgets remain roughly the same (mobile phone: ~5W, case temperature < 45oC, 1-day of active use). Hence, Power Management becomes the critical element.

BayLibre at Embedded Linux Conference

BayLibre was present at the Embedded Linux Conference in Edinburgh. A session was dedicated to sharing a hardware accelerated encryption use case analysis. This use case was based on an OMAP4 platform running Android Jellybean. The analysis consisted in understanding the performances bottlenecks and improving them.

Here are the slides which were presented:
