Tom Gall talks about the wide variety of graphics related optimizations that the Linaro Graphics working group works on, activities within the Kernel layer for panel and kernel device drivers, user space optimizations for libraries important for the graphics stack including audio-visual libraries for multimedia type applications, optimizing using NEON, starting to look at using GPGPUs, doing general purpose computing on a GPU device.
Vincent Guittot, Linaro assignee from ST-Ericsson, talks about the work that is being done at Linaro to Extend the Linux kernel to support ARM’s big.LITTLE MP architecture, building on the features provided by the big.LITTLE Switcher project. The most powerful use model of big.LITTLE is called MP and enables the use of all physical cores at the same time. Threads with high priority and/or computationally intensive can in this case be allocated to the A15 cores while threads with less priority or less computationally intensive such as background tasks can be performed by the A7 cores.
Karim Yaghmour talks to Zach Pfeffer about the Linux Trace Toolkit, the Embedded Linux book and now he’s releasing the Embedded Android book. At Linaro Connect Asia 2013, Karim Yaghmour presented 4 sessions on Embedded Android which I filmed in their entirety which you can watch here:
Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android Session 1: Android Internals
Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android Session 2: Working with the AOSP
Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android Session 3: Native Android user-space
Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android Session 4: Using and Customizing the Android Framework
Adam Conrad, Software Engineer at Canonical talks to Zach Pfeffer about his experiences developing and optimizing Linux on 68k then on ARM.
Open Compute is a project originally started by Facebook as “Project Freedom”, turned into a big community movement that is going to redefine how consumers consume enterprise hyperscale infrastructure.
Daniel Lezcano talks about CPU idle optimizations, trying to power down the different peripherals of the ARM SoC, consolidating the drivers by changing the way they are managing the different peripherals.
Amit Kucheria is the Linaro Power Management Tech Lead, and Will Deacon works on the Linux Kernel at ARM. They talk about what they have been doing at Linaro Connect and what they are working on in the months to come.
John Buchanan, Chairman of ARM Holdings plc, said, “Warren has transformed ARM during his time as CEO. In 2001 ARM had one processor product line found mainly in mobile phones. Now ARM provides the broadest portfolio of technologies in the industry, used by more than 300 semiconductor customers in nearly 9 billion chips last year. During Warren’s tenure the company has received royalties for over 40 billion ARM-based chips. As CEO he has created a strong platform for growth and consistently created value for shareholders even in a challenging external environment. On behalf of the Board, and the wider ARM team, deep thanks are due to Warren for his passion, service and leadership.”
“The Board is delighted to have someone of Simon Segars’ experience and calibre within ARM to appoint to the role of CEO. Following an extensive review of candidates worldwide, Simon’s proven technology expertise and management skills across a range of senior executive roles make him an excellent CEO candidate and highly qualified to take the company forward. The Board looks forward to continuing to work with Simon to build on the strong momentum that has been created over the past years.”
Here’s a look back at some of my video interviews posted during the past 2 and a half years with both Warren East and Simon Segars:
From 3 weeks ago, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, I posted my first video interview with Warren East:
At ARM Techcon 2011 in October 2011 I interviewed Simon Segars:
and also back at ARM Techcon 2010 in November 2010:
Debian developer working at Collabora. Contributing to the open and free software community. On the board of directors of the Gnome desktop, doing Gstreamer and multimedia work, making multimedia work on set-top-boxes and smart TVs, working on the automobile environment. Building the ARM ports in Debian, optimizing the hard float in Debian, Ubuntu, now everyone is using the ARM hard float.
Deepak Saxena is the Linaro Kernel Tech Lead, here he talks about what he has been doing at Linaro Connect Asia 2013.
Nicolas Pitre and Viresh Kumar are part of the core team from Linaro that is working on developing future solutions for the latest ARM architecture: big LITTLE. Here they discuss some of the internals of the famous IKS solution. They are joined by Naresh Kamboju who is part of QA team working for Linaro.
This team including few more got “Outstanding team for 2012 for their work on IKS”.
ARM works to support open standards to optimize the web browser on ARM Powered HDMI Sticks, working with DLNA, WebKit, other open standards to have all set-top-box features work on ARM Powered set-top-boxes and HDMI Sticks. Here, ARM talks about working with FXI Technology on the Cotton Candy, running Linaro-optimized Ubuntu and the Webkit optimized web browser through Qt.
Jon Masters runs Red Hat’s ARM team, and contributes to the Fedora ARM group also. Red Hat works as a part of the Linaro Enterprise Group, to work on the first generation of ARM Servers.
Dr. Leendert van Doorn, Corporate Fellow at AMD, talks about what AMD does with Linaro to optimize Linux on ARM. He talks about the expectations that AMD has for results to come from Linaro in terms of achieving a better and more fully featured Linux world on ARM, especially for the ARM Cortex-A57 ARMv8 processor that AMD has announced for the server market.
Marcin Juszkiewicz talks about his experiences at Linaro Connect 2013 in Hong Kong. Talking about the sessions he liked, talking about his opinions on things and the things he does at Linaro. He talks about why he uses Cyanogenmod over Linaro Android builds on his Android phones, it’s for the customizations, add-ons, changes, tweaks.
Zach Pfeffer presents the Memory Hotplug on Android at Linaro Connect 2013. Slides are here.
