The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in its 9th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. ELC is embedded Linux experts talking about solutions to your embedded Linux problems. ELC consists of 3 days of presentations, tutorials and Bird-of-a-Feather sessions. There are over 50 sessions to choose from, on a wide variety of topics.
While recent advances in SoCs have allowed for extremely small and low power mobile Linux devices, many of these advances are economically inaccessible for low volume devices. uCLinux provides a path for customized low volume devices while at the same time allowing reuse of IP in a full Linux device for future potential volume growth. This session will compare and contrast implementations of a uCLinux device with a Linux device from both software and hardware prospectives, including brief consideration of manufacturing consequences. Features, production volume, physical size, limitations of uCLinux and economy of the hardware will be looked at.
This session is for people looking to build or prototype a low volume custom mobile device. The take away from this is the economic viability of uCLinux as an alternative to full Linux. A basic understanding of embedded Linux is needed.
