Practical Real-Time Linux - Arnout Vandecappelle, Essensium/Mind

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

People often turn from microcontrollers to Linux to combine the mission critical application code with various open source libraries and applications that provide juicy additional features. But all these other bits tend to get in the way of the core business of the device. Somehow, you have to make sure that the application remains functional while the GUI or network is bombarded with events. Real-time Linux systems to the rescue!

This talk discusses the Xenomai system and the RT kernel patch based on two case studies: a radio signal analyser and a motor control system. Practical examples show what to look out for when developing such a system, and they compare the strengths and weaknesses of Xenomai and the RT patch. After this talk, you'll have a better idea if you need a real-time Linux system and how you need to write your application so it actually works real-time.
