Overview:
Whether your application lives deep in an automotive antilock braking system, in a set-top box, or a robotic arm, your customers demand the smallest possible footprint and the fastest possible boot sequence or, for always-on devices, the most immediate response. Linux desktop-based packages can bloat a system with features and tools that are inappropriate or unnecessary for your embedded device, increasing your costs for footprint-sensitive markets. Cutting them down to size can be time-consuming and frustrating. 
Combining the latest possible technology with the greatest possible stability, Wind River Linux 4 offers embedded developers a host of new tools and techniques to analyze and optimize device performance. 
In this web seminar, Wind River Linux gurus Jason Wessel and David Reyna will demonstrate how embedded Linux savvy and an evolved commercial development platform can combine to produce better performance, faster boot sequences, quicker response times, and lower power consumption than you thought was possible.
What attendees will learn:

  • How to profile and reduce target boot times
  • How to reduce footprint based on file system usage
  • How to profile applications and observe power usage via wakeup frequency

Who should attend:

  • Chief technology officers and engineering managers with embedded Linux projects in their portfolios
  • System developers working on embedded Linux projects
