Accelerate Development for Embedded, Mobile, and the Internet of Things

10/29/2014 9:00 AM PST

Presenter:
Robert Mueller

 

Join us for an in-depth look at software development for embedded, mobile, and the Internet of Things. Learn how to apply the newest Intel® System Studio features to real-world development challenges. We’ll look at examples and demos of how these features speed up and streamline the development cycle based on the MinnowBoard MAX and Intel® Atom™ Processor E3800 platform.

New Intel System Studio features include:

  • Support for the Microsoft Windows* target platforms for build, performance analysis, and energy profiling
  • Use of Intel® Processor Trace (Intel® PT) on the brand-new 5th generation Intel® Core™ M Processor to more easily identify runtime issue root causes
  • Tight Intel System Studio integration into Wind River Workbench* for a seamless development, debug, and analysis experience when targeting the latest Intel® architecture designs running Wind River Linux*
  • Compiler integration with the latest Android* NDK and tools support for the very latest Android OS features

Optimize for Energy Efficiency: Software-Based Power Analysis

11/12/2014 9:00 AM PST

Presenter:
Kevin O’leary

 

A close look at software-based power analysis solutions on Intel® architecture-based systems. A key consideration when tuning for power is whether the system is waking up unnecessarily and what is causing the system to wake up from a low power state. Another factor is whether your system is operating at a high frequency—thereby consuming power at an accelerated rate. We will examine several system power issues that can greatly degrade a system and discuss potential solutions. We’ll cover power analysis on both Android* and Windows* systems. Learn the different power and frequency states of Intel® based architectures, as well as different software techniques for tuning for power.

Increase Insight into Kernel Module Development with JTAG Debugging

11/19/2014 9:00 AM PST

Presenter:
Paul Farquhar

 

A JTAG debugger can be a great tool in kernel module development. Advantages include halting the complete system during debugging (not only the thread being debugged), and making it easy to examine the entire CPU and memory.

We’ll look at how the Intel® System Debugger functions to debug a kernel module of Yocto* built Linux*. After loading the module symbols, we’ll debug in source code. As a target, we will use the Intel® Quark™ based platform Galileo, often used in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. We’ll use the open source software OpenOCD* to connect to the JTAG probe.

Using a JTAG debugger is easier than you might expect and the benefits far outweigh the learning curve. Learn the steps necessary to prepare for JTAG debugging with the Intel System Debugger and the hardware support requirements.

Maximize Graphics Processor Compute Power for General Purpose Computing

Processor graphics hardware occupies almost 30% of the processor silicon real estate. This makes it all the more important to expose these computation units to developers for general-purpose computing and unlock the idle GFLOPS in Intel® Graphics Technology. We’ll examine how the C++ offload compiler enables you to fully utilize Intel® processors through easy access to the GPGPU capabilities of Intel Graphics Technology. This compute offload feature is accomplished using the C/C++ Intel® Cilk™ Plus parallel programming paradigm with small extensions for kernel and data offload.

While it’s essential to provide compelling heterogeneous programming models for general-purpose computing, it’s also critical to simplify porting existing C/C++ applications for efficient execution on processor graphics. The Intel Cilk Plus programming model helps express the potential parallelism and vectorization opportunities in the source code. This capability is available on Win32*, Win64* and Linux64* (Ubuntu* 12.04 and SLES* 11) platforms.
