Panel – Hypervisors: A Real Trend in Embedded, or Just Hype?
Embedded Software Development
50-Minute Panel Discussion
Audience Level: All
Security and functional safety are two key elements of embedded system development, and increasingly system architects are looking at solutions at the point where software touches the hardware. Processor architecture changes such as hardware virtualization extensions and TrustZone, and software changes in hypervisors and real time operating systems (RTOSs) take advantage of these architectural features. What are the real differences in these hardware and software technical innovations? For processors, how do hardware virtualization extensions compare with TrustZone for use for security and safety? For resource management, safety and security, how do new hypervisor offerings stack up to the established technology of RTOS? Are hypervisors a real trend in embedded systems or just hype?
Security and functional safety in embedded system development mandate solutions where the software touches the hardware. Learn how processor architecture changes, with hardware virtualization extensions and TrustZone, and software changes, including hypervisors and RTOSs, interrelate. For resource management, safety and security, find out if hypervisors are a real trend in embedded systems or just hype.
Intended audience: This panel session is intended for anyone responsible for the software that runs on a SoC, and anyone responsible for the development of security and safety-critical systems.
