Sree Kotay, Comcast Chief Software Architect about starting the Linaro Home Group for optimizing Linux for the ARM Powered Set-top-box

Posted by – March 18, 2014

Radically revamping the device development model for Carrier class operators with ARM and Linaro. Comcast? Software? Isn’t that an oxymorom? See how the open source community and modern development models are re-shaping the feature velocity and security models for embedded devices like set-top-boxes, cable modems and gateways. Competing in the modern landscape means building products and experiences that compete with a new breed of innovators. Comcast’s SVP, Engineering and Operations and Chief Software Architect will provide insight into how its reinvented its technology stack and product line.

my interview with him:

The new Linaro Home Group is about optimizing ARM Linux for Multimedia Set-top-boxes. Here’s my interview with Sree Kotay, Comcast Chief Software Architect about how Comcast is interested in working with Linaro to optimize Linux on the ARM Powered Set-top-box.

Android optimizations for ARM by Linaro Engineers

Posted by – March 7, 2014

Linaro Engineers present a bunch of optimizations they recently did in Android for ARM. These optimizations are in areas like BIONIC for Cortex C string routines, migrating to GCC 4.9, migrating the external projects to their latest versions, optimizing SQLite, optimizing battery life, also they discuss their progress building Android with CLANG, migrating Android to latest versions and how Linaro is planning to release these optimizations to the Android community through Linaro Android releases and upstream them to respective project repositories.

George Grey, CEO of Linaro, the not-for-profit engineering organization consolidating and optimizing open source Linux software and tools for the ARM architecture, announces that Qualcomm, Mediatek, ZTE, AllWinner and Comcast are joining Linaro to work together on bringing Linux on ARM forward together. They are joining the existing Linaro member companies who are ARM, HiSilicon, Broadcom, Fujitsu, LG, Samsung, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, AMD, AppliedMicro, Canonical, Cavium, Cisco, Citrix, Enea, Facebook, Freescale, HP, LSI, Marvell, Montavista, Nokia Solutions and Networks, Red Hat and IBM who all are contributing engineers to all be working together to improve Linux on ARM for Mobile, Enterprise (servers), Networking, and now also for Home (Set-top-box) usage with the Internet of Things potentially also to be supported. Linaro just held its Linaro Connect Asia here in Macau this week and I will be posting many videos from there, interviewing Linaro engineers about some of the latest Linux hacking work they are doing to speed up all ARM Powered devices.

MHL for Productivity, Acer Extend, MediaTek MT6592 MHL Optimizations and Dell/Roku MHL HDMI Sticks

Posted by – February 28, 2014

One of the most interesting aspects of MHL in my opinion is that MHL enables your Smartphone to run your PC/Desktop/Laptop experience. Now Acer is showing their Acer Extend prototype where it’s an “empty” good looking laptop shell as stylish as an Ultrabook, which only contains the display, battery, keyboard, mousepad and basic MHL support electronics, thus potentially being sold at a very cheap price, then you power that Laptop Dock with your Phone, in the similar way to the Motorola LapDock system of a couple of years ago. MediaTek is showing some Android software optimizations that they are doing to run this setup on their Octa Core MT6592 processor, thus switching the Android UI to a more Laptop-friendly orientation and configuration when the MHL connectivity to the Laptop Dock is triggered. Hopefully that Android 5 will feature optimized MHL functionality also, perhaps even enabling to instantly switch to a full Chrome OS like productivity state when the MHL to Laptop Dock is detected. MHL also demonstrates a couple of important HDMI sticks from Dell and from Roku which feature MHL support, making HDMI Sticks easy to use and clutter-free, automatically powered by the TV itself and running the full Productivity Suite or the Entertainment Functions directly on the HDMI Stick. Now with MHL 3.0, MHL supports up to 600mbit/s on the USB Host direction, something that I have been looking forward to since I started video-blogging about MHL in 2011. The potential here is to accelerate the adoption of ARM Devices for powering productivity.

MHL shipped in over 400 million devices, MHL 3.0 does 4K

Posted by – January 26, 2014

MHL launches MHL 3.0 with 6gbit/s bandwidth to support 4K 2160p30 video output from a phone, simultaneous up to 40mbitps data channel for USB 2.0 host (for example USB hard drives), new RCP commands, HID support for touchscreens, keyboard and mice, now charging with up to 10W of power, HDCP 2.2, 7.1 surround sound with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD, connector agnostic (uses as few as five pins), support for simultaneous up to 4 displays on one MHL 3 output while being backward compatible with MHL 1 and MHL 2. Thus far, more than 200 companies have shipped over 300 MHL compatible devices in phones, tablets, TVs, accessories and more, shipped in more than 400 million devices on the market thus far since MHL 1 launched in 2010.
