Smart City - vom Rapid Prototyping bis zur Tragfähigen Infrastruktur

Wir wollen zum Bundesweiten Digitaltag am 18.6.2021 das Thema "Smarte Städte" ein bisschen von der technischen Seite beleuchten, aber keine Angst: es bleibt für alle verständlich.


Showcase: Continuous Testing

About 70,000 patches go into the Linux kernel every year, and many of them are bug fixes. The same applies to most other open source projects that are part of a modern Linux system. In order to benefit from the work in the community, the sensible strategy is to constantly update to the latest software version and keep the system up to date. Of course, with this amount of changes, new bugs can be added or incompatibilities can arise.

The schedule for this year's Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) has just been released. As in the last years Pengutronix contributes talks to current topics around Embedded Linux.


Pengutronix at Embedded World 2020

Yesterday, Embedded World started, in normal times one of the largest trade shows for embedded development in Europe. While many exhibitors (and thus maybe also lots of visitors) have canceled their presence due to the coronavirus, we present our booth and our demo show cases as usual.


FOSDEM 2020 – Recommended Talks

Enrico Jörns, Chris Fiege | | Event

FOSDEM is one of the biggest Open Source community meetings in Europe and takes place in Brussels at the Université Libre de Bruxelles every year in February. For Pengutronix this is always a good chance to meet developers, discuss current topics and enjoy some Belgian beer and food. This year we attended FOSDEM with 15 colleagues. Here are some talks our colleagues recommend you to see.


Automated Testing Summit 2019

Chris Fiege, Jan Lübbe | | Event

Jan, Rouven and Chris attended the Automated Testing Summit 2019 at the ELC-E in Lyon. The Summit began with Lightning Tasks on the progress in some projects. One highlight was Kevin Hilman's talk: "the bugs are too fast - and why we can't catch them."


Launch of Linux Automation GmbH

We proudly present our new spin-off Linux Automation GmbH for selling hardware products, like USB-SD-Mux.


FrOSCon 14

Chris Fiege | | Event

Pengutronix has been to FrOSCon at the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. This year we had a booth where we presented our Open Source activities and were able to contribute three talks. A booth at an Open Source conference like FrOSCon always opens doors to a lot of interesting conversations with new faces, old friends and colleagues.


Jump Start your BSP using DistroKit and PTXdist Layers

A BSP (Board Support Package) in Embedded Software is the layer of software that lets you run your application on a specific hardware. For Pengutronix a BSP usually contains a bootloader, Linux Kernel and a userspace. DistroKit is our Demo-BSP that supports a variety of common evaluation boards. DistroKit gives you a head start if you want to develop an application on top of such an evaluation board with most of the hard problems already solved.


Techweek 2019

Chris Fiege, Marie Mann | | Event

In a place, far, far away, where no customer could find us, the Pengutronix team met for the annual Techweek.


USB-SD-Mux: EMC Testing

Today Jonas and I went to our EMC testing lab to continue the measurements needed to certify electromagnetic compatibility for the USB-SD-Mux.


Diary: Chemnitzer Linux Tage 2019

In this article we are writing our diary about the two fascinating days at the Chemnitzer Linux Tage 2019. We invite you to visit us at our booth. This year the OSADL is our guest.

FOSDEM 2019: cfi's Diary

Chris Fiege | | Event

This year 14 Pengutronix developers attended the FOSDEM at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. Since there was no embedded track this year we had lot's of time to follow talks, workshops and meetups on embedded Linux, graphics, multimedia, electronics and many more.

Summary: Automated Testing Summit 2018

Chris Fiege | | Event

The Automated Testing Summit (ATS) was a co-located event at the ELC-E 2018 in Edinburgh. The summit was organized by Tim Bird and Kevin Hilman and brought together over 35 (embedded) testing experts from different projects and companies.


USB-SD-Mux: Automated SD-Card Juggler

Once the bootloader on your embedded device is up and running the development of kernel and userland in PTXdist-based BSPs is usually based on booting from network. Thus there is no need for the developer to write the boot media with a new image.
