Citrix wants to join Linaro as a member as soon as possible, enabling their virtualization features on ARM Powered devices like Servers. Here Mark Heath, Citrix VP of Products, XenServer talks with http://youtube.com/ambergraner of Linaro about what Citrix is doing at Linaro Connect 2013.
1. Ne10 overview
2. update Ne10 status
* DSP module is added
* organization, test system and documentation are built
* image processing module is in process
* Image processing function is very useful for the android and iOS
APPs developers, because they aren’t good at NEON assembly coding so
that many new features can’t be implemented in APPs.
3. get feed back
* we expect getting more feedback about new APIs of Ne10
4. discuss the future of Ne10
* such as ARM v8, OpenCV, etc
5. Linaro Android Project Discussion
George Grey introduces the Linaro 2013, Linaro has now grown from 8 members 6 months ago to 24 members today. Core members ARM, Hisilicon and Texas Instruments. Club members LG, Samsung and ST-Ericsson. Group members AMD, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Enea, Facebook, HP, LSI, Marvell, Montavista, Nokia Siemens Networks and Red Hat. Community members are Freescale and IBM. All those companies assign some of their engineers to work at the not-for-profit open source organization Linaro to optimize and improve Linux support on ARM devices, from ARM Powered Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, Set-top-boxes, Servers and Networking equipment.
The group picture for Linaro Connect 2013 is up here:
While Android has been created for mobile devices — phones first and now tablets — it can, nonetheless, be used as the basis of any touch-screen system, whether it be mobile or not. Essentially, Android is a custom-built embedded Linux distribution with a very elaborate and rich set of user-space abstractions, APIs, services and virtual machine. This four-part workshop is aimed at embedded developers wanting to build touch-based embedded systems using Android. It covers Android from the ground up, enabling developers to get a firm hold on the components that make up Android and how they need to be adapted to an embedded system.
Specifically, Karim starts by introducing Android’s overall architecture and then proceeds to peel Android’s layer one-by-one. First, he covers the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the open source project under which Android’s source code is released. He then digs into the native Android user-space, Android’s power tools, and covers how hardware support is implemented in Android. Given that Android is built on top of Linux, he also goes over some embedded Linux tricks and sees how the kernel is modified to support the Android user-space. In addition, he looks at the System Server, the Android Framework and core Android applications, and how to customize them.
Check back for part 2, 3 and 4 to be filmed and posted once a day over the next 3 days, while I am video-blogging here at the Linaro Connect conference.
This week I am video-blogging at the Linaro Connect developer conference on optimizing Linux on ARM in Hong Kong. Here’s Mike Levine’s session introducing Linaro to the new Linaro employees and assignees (engineers from Linaro member companies assigned to work on Linaro).
Target audience: new assignees, employees, consultants, people interested in joining Linaro
