Transcript of "Reference Hardware for Linux In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) Development"

  1. 1. MeeGo on Development Boards Alison Chaiken alchaiken@gmail.com Nokia Mobility Solutions 5/24/2011
  2. 2. Notable Dev Boards in use by aMeeGos BeagleBoard XM X1 Cortex A8 with SGX530 GPUPandaboardX2 Cortex A9 with SGX540 GPU ST-Ericsson Snowball X2 Cortex A9 with Mali GPU
  3. 3. Prototyping possibilities Gumstix Overo X1 Cortex A8 with SGX530 GPUAtom N450 Mini-ITXSingle core, “integrated graphics” Variscite AM35 Freescale iMX53 QuickStart X1 Cortex A8 600 MHz, CAN bus X1 Cortex A8 1 GHz, SATA
  4. 4. Different approaches● TI has put a great deal of effort into development hardware but less into SDK ● No TI “app store”● Intel has put great effort into the MeeGo SDK ● AppUp online store accepts “components” as well as user-facing apps● Gumstix is explicitly aimed at prototypers● ST Ericsson, Freescale just getting started
  5. 5. Why does MeeGo care about dev boards?● Encourage interest in MeeGo platform − Education and science markets● Enable startups and small businesses to develop prototypes of H/W products● Ease development of H/W-intensive S/W (using sensors)● Potential to create accessory market of MeeGo-compatible devices
  6. 6. Problems● Atom development boards are expensive ($1400) unless purchaser is part of “seed board” program ($149) ● Compatible tools (JTAG) also more expensive● MeeGo 1.2 ABI for ARM not backwards-compatible with 1.1 (softfp → hardfp break)● Device driver support spotty● Uneven toolchain support and documentation● Product lifetime and availability not always clear
  7. 7. Questions Does MeeGo for Who are the current microcontrollers users and what are make sense? their plans? What features does MeeGo lack to support H/W that startups and small businesses need? What features do existingWhat relationship should dev boards lack? WhatMeeGo have with Yocto, Linaro, accessories?OpenEmbedded, Buildroot?
