Intrinsyc Software International, a Vancouver-based developer of intelligent connected devices, has announced that its engineering experts will give technical presentations on how to optimize performance of Linux and Android devices using embedded MultiMediaCard (eMMC) technology at the Android Builders Summit and Embedded Linux Conference, being held this month in California. Events are produced by the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux. Intrinsyc is a member of the Linux Foundation and Bronze Sponsor of the Android Builders Summit.
Developers are increasingly choosing eMMC instead of raw NAND flash as their main storage media in embedded devices. Presentations provide a background on eMMC on the Linux Kernel and the current state of the Android platform in regards to eMMC. Presenters will share insights on how to effectively measure your eMMC performance, and tips to improve it. Topics covered include: filesystem bearing on MMC/SD performance, IO scheduler configuration, and optimal partition layout.
The Android Builders Summit, February 13 – 14, 2012 at the Hotel Sofitel San Francisco Bay, Redwood Shores, CA, is a technical summit for OEMs, device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders, and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities. The Android Builders Summit provides an intimate forum for collaboration at the systems level and discussion of core issues and opportunities when designing Android devices.
The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC), February 15 – 17, 2012 at the Hotel Sofitel San Francisco Bay, Redwood Shores, CA, is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in its 8th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers.
Tom Foy, Embedded Software Developer for Intrinsyc Software, will present at the Android Builders Summit. Tom has worked on multiple embedded Linux based products, specializing on e-readers and tablets. Mainly focusing in the areas of power management, ARM platform support and system performance he has experience in taking the often rough initial platforms provided by silicon vendors and making them ready for consumer use.
Ken Tough, Principal Engineer with Intrinsyc Software, will present at the Embedded Linux Consortium. Ken led the platform development on Linux and Android-based embedded products, including system engineering on the several e-readers and tablets. He has broad experience in the areas of power management and charging, system performance, component qualification, USB, and product-hardening of reference BSPs.
