Presentation Topic: Consumer Operating Systems in System-Critical Embedded Machines
When: Wednesday, April 9, 2014, 11:30 a.m. 1 hour
Where: San Antonio 6; AUT-F0420
Speaker: Joe Fabbre, Director of Platform Solutions, Green Hills Software
Track: Automotive, Software and Design Services; Infotainment
Synopsis: Consumer operating systems such as Linux & Android bring open source flexibility, powerful middleware frameworks and consumer device ubiquity -- making them useful in automotive, industrial and medical devices. But how do you handle "system-critical" requirements? This presentation explores mixing the consumer operating system with system-critical functions:

  • Proven methods for Linux/Android safety & security
  • How to amplify the options for integrating car-friendly software frameworks, app stores, and mobile phone content for the consumer's ultimate gain
  • What are the emerging trends for multicore processors, GPUs, virtualization and ultra-speed wireless networks that qualify the practical deployment of Linux in automotive electronics?

Presentation Topic: A Firmware Strategy for the Internet of Things
When: Wednesday, April 9, 2014, 4:15 pm, 1 hour
Where: Dallas 7; SDS-F0419
Speaker: Joe Fabbre, Director of Platform Solutions, Green Hills Software
Track: Software and Design Services; Advanced Design Techniques
Synopsis: The Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest technology megatrend and buzzword. But to our community, it's the natural progression for embedded systems, which enjoy increased capability in ever-smaller designs, year after year. Nevertheless, we have reached an inflection point where even the most resource-constrained devices can host sophisticated communications stacks, enabling an exciting world. Much of the technological innovation in IoT is centered on the protocols, standards, and applications needed to enable these new capabilities. Security, however, is largely an afterthought: businesses almost never design in security for the sake of protection. This talk will discuss the security and privacy challenges introduced by IoT and how developers can use security to gain a competitive advantage.

Topic: The New ARMv8-A Architecture -- 64-bit and Much More
When: Thursday, April 10, 2014, 5:15 pm, 1 hour
Where: Dallas 7; SDS-F0421
Speaker: Joe Fabbre, Director of Platform Solutions, Green Hills Software
Ian Forsythe, Sr. Product Manager, ARM Ltd.
Track: Software and Design Services; Advanced Design Techniques
Synopsis: The new ARMv8-A architecture from ARM Ltd. made its first splash in the iPhone 5S and is now on many processor roadmaps for automotive, networking, data center and IoT. Freescale's own QorIQ and i.MX families will soon utilize the ARMv8 architecture in the Cortex-A57 processor, ARM's most advanced high-performance processor, and the Cortex-A53, the world's smallest 64-bit processor and ARM's most power-efficient. From its experience working closely with ARM Ltd. as the first supplier of RTOS and development tools for the ARMv8, Green Hills will share insights into the new features of the architecture from a software perspective, and outline its experience, tips and tricks for system engineers and software developers planning projects on the new architecture.

On the show floor, Green Hills will offer the following demonstrations on four different workstations:
