Kynetics will be presenting at the Embedded Linux Conference and OpenIOT Summit 2018 in Portland, Oregon – March 12-14.

We will be covering the following topics:

Remote Software Updates for IoT Devices with Eclipse hawkBit

In the past embedded software updates have often been based on custom software, but now several open source frameworks are emerging as community based software components to build configurable, scalable and robust update platforms.

This talk will show how to build a remote software update management platform to transparently manage a heterogeneous set of devices (embedded Linux and Android).

For the remote software update management platform the Eclipse hawkBit software will be presented, showing its architecture, security model and use cases.

For the IoT device hawkBit client two heterogeneous solutions will be presented: a SWUpdate based Linux client and an open source DDI service Android app. The SWUpdate Linux client will be configured in a two phase Android-style approach separating the installation of the update files in a single purpose recovery OS. Presented by Diego Rondini.

An Introduction to Asymmetric Multiprocessing: When this Architecture can be a Game Changer and How to Survive It

Asymmetric multi-processing (AMP) systems fulfill the need for high performance and real-time by combining the responsiveness of a MCU with the processing power of an application processor which runs a full OS.

This talk will present a technical overview on asymmetric multiprocessing platforms focussing on motivations, use cases and how to handle interprocess communication between MCU and MPU in practice.

Tools and strategies on how to develop software on such platforms will be presented, as well as debugging techniques which take into account the diversity and complexity of such systems. A case of study based an AMP architecture is analyzed. Low-latency tasks such as high-rate reading/sampling can be handled more easily and efficiently by the MCU core running a RTOS while data visualization can displayed by the Master core running a full Linux operating system. Presented by Nicola La Gloria and Laura Nao.
